Selena Gomez went to the emergency room Monday morning.

Fear not. Sources close to the singer told TMZ Gomez has been suffering from a sore throat was afraid might have strep, so she decided seek immediate medical attention.

Apparently they don't have regular old doctor's offices or urgent care facilities in Hollywood. I blame Obamacare.

Gomez allegedly had to end a weekend recording session early because of the pain. Also, Gomez's step-father has been suffering from bronchitis, and she thinks she may have been exposed to something contagious.

That's right -- blame the step-parent

Sources said doctors don't think she has strep, but tests won't be back for a couple days. In the meantime, she needs plenty of fluids, lots of rest, and no screaming at Justin Bieber in Japanese restaurants, at least until the weekend.

Of course, Gomez was allegedly out with Bieber after the American Music Awards on Sunday night. The two had a spat at a Japanese restaurant Friday night, with Bieber ending up locked outside her gated community, yelling for her to let him in. Since photographers saw his car leaving the next morning, apparently she finally relented.
