Selena Gomez is taking some -quot;time to herself-quot; amid rumours surrounding her love life.

The 25-year-old singer was recently reported to have put her romance with on/off boyfriend Justin Bieber on hold following pressure from her mother Mandy Teefey, and Selena has now taken the decision to take a break from her work commitments in order to spend time with her family.

An insider explained: -quot;Selena is very delicate; her "comeback" to the spotlight has been tough - especially with the interest in her personal life with Justin and her mother.

-quot;She is taking time to herself. This is not the first time she has done this.-quot; Selena"s mother has previously questioned whether Justin, 24, is a

suitable boyfriend for her daughter.

And the "Wolves" hitmaker is now focused on rebuilding her relationship with Mandy.

The source told Entertainment Tonight: -quot;She wants to repair her relationship with her mother, that"s a priority for her, too.-quot;


Meanwhile, it was claimed over the weekend that Selena decided to put her relationship with Justin on hold because of how her family had

reacted to their reunion.

An insider explained: -quot;Selena and Justin decided to take a break mainly because of Selena"s mom and her disapproval of Justin. Justin"s

family loves Selena, but Selena"s family has put her in a very conflicting spot because they still don"t trust Justin.

-quot;Selena has tried to convince her family that Justin has changed ... but her family just isn"t budging right now.-quot;

Despite this, the suggestion from Selena and Justin is that in the long term, they hope to rekindle their romance.

The insider continued: -quot;Justin and Selena decided to take a break to give her family some more time to heal and take in the idea of her and Justin being a couple again.-quot;
