Selena Gomez reportedly acts like "a completely different person" around Justin Bieber.
The 'Come & Get It' hitmaker, 21, reunited with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, 20, of more than three years last month, despite checking into a rehab facility in January in a bid to finally get over him, and her friends are allegedly worried by her behaviour.
A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com: "Selena is now acting a little brainwashed and not challenging a thing Justin says. There was a time not long ago where they were fighting and arguing about their relationship, but now she's like a robot and completely in his thrall.
"Whatever he did to keep her from moving on from the relationship worked a little bit too well, because it's like she's a completely different person."
The couple were inseparable at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California last weekend.
Meanwhile, sources close to the 'Heartbreaker' singer are glad he has reunited with the brunette beauty, who recently fired her parents as her managers, as she is helping him get his life back on track after a few difficult months.
An insider recently said that the Canadian star is "ready to make some changes in his life" ahead of his court appearance in Miami on May 6, where he will face charges for Driving Under the Influence (DUI), resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver's licence in January.

The famous trio coordinated their outfits for the occasion and wore matching denim shorts, flowing tops, boots and sunglasses at the polo grounds.
Later that night, Selena, 21, and Kylie, 16, let their hair down at Lexus and Details magazine's Midnight Party.
A source told UsMagazine.com that the girls "sat in the VIP area very briefly, before it was very full, and quickly moved."

Aspiring actress Kylie hinted that the group opted to drive from their homes in Calabasas, California instead of taking a private plane to the festival, as she posted a picture of herself and 'Spring Breakers' actress Selena cuddling up together in a fast-food restaurant with the caption: "In n out for lunch five guys for dinner #girlstrip. (sic)"
The brunette beauties were also spotted hanging out together at Sean 'Diddy' Combs' son Christian's 16th birthday at 1Oak nightclub on April 4.
'Chanel' model Kendall, 18, also enjoyed a lunch date with Selena at Joan's On Third in LA last month.
Their Coachella trip comes just days after Selena was seen hanging on with her on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber in Miami, Florida.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were inseparable at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival last weekend.
The on-again, off-again couple, who also spent time in a Miami recording studio together last week, were spotted looking very cosy despite attempting to go unnoticed at the three-day event at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
An eyewitness told UsMagazine.com that Selena, 21, cheered on Justin, 20, during his surprise performance with his friend Chance The Rapper on Sunday, and held hands with him as they made their way through an all-access area.
The insider added: "They both had on sunglasses and had their heads down like they didn't want to be noticed."
The duo were later seen slow dancing as they watched Calvin Harris' set, surrounded by four bodyguards.
Another source said: "They were dancing slow right next to each other, swaying around. (They) were whispering to each other, laughing, [and] standing close together ... surrounded by four bodyguards backstage."
The 'Come & Get It' hitmaker, who sought treatment in rehab in January after reportedly struggling to get over the Canadian singer, initially appeared to be enjoying a girls' trip to the annual festival, after arriving in the area with a group of pals, including Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
The brunette beauty and the 'Baby' singer - who have broken up several times since they first started dating in 2010 - have been keeping their fans guessing as to whether or not they are back together and have yet to comment on the current status of their relationship.
Parent Shock: Selena Gomez wants older man
Selena Gomez is reportedly over Justin Bieber and wants her next boyfriend to be more mature.
Selena Gomez wants to date an older man.
The 21-year-old singer has reportedly had enough of her on/off boyfriend Justin Bieber's erratic behaviour and is seeking an older suitor who can treat her the way she deserves.
A source told RadarOnline.com: "Selena is ready to date an older man. She's grown tired of Justin's attention-grabbing antics. A permanent breakup between the two could even be confirmed as early as mid-July."
Justin, 20, and Selena were thought to be back on after the Canadian heartthrob shared some Instagram pictures of the former Disney star - who endured a stint in rehab in January - in the studio last month.
They had also briefly rekindled their romance earlier this year, despite rumours of Selena's pals and parents warning her off the pop bad boy, who was arrested for alleged drag this January and charged with resisting arrest and possessing an invalid driver's license.
But now sources are claiming the 'Come & Get It' hitmaker is fed up of strip club-loving Justin's wild antics and impulsive antics like getting tattooed at 40,000 feet above the ground on a private flight earlier this year.
The insider added: "It's the same issue they had before. She just isn't the same person she was when they first got together and she doesn't really miss the 'old Selena' much at all.
"Justin is a little bit of a crazy guy who could do something weird like proposing marriage just to keep her by his side, but that's Selena's exact problem with him.

"She really finds it uncool how he buys into his own hype, and that's why she's spent a couple of months trying to re-establish herself - and distance herself from Justin."
Selena Gomez' parents shocked by split
Selena Gomez's mother Mandy Teefey says she and her husband Brian didn't realise she was serious about firing them as her managers until the news was made public.
Selena Gomez' parents didn't realise they had been fired as her managers.
The 21-year-old singer's mother Mandy Teefey and her step-father Brian have controlled her affairs since she shot to fame in 2007, but the brunette beauty decided last month to recruit someone else, and it is only since the news became public last week that the pair realised the decision was final.
Mandy told TMZ she thought their conversation in March was "just talk" and they sat down again with their daughter after the news broke to ensure she was "absolutely sure" she wanted to seek new guidance, and the former Disney star said yes.
The showbiz matriarch insists she respects her daughter's decision and plans to continue producing several projects with her, including the upcoming movie 'The Sky Is Everywhere'.
It was claimed that the 'Spring Breakers' star decided to end their professional relationship as she felt she had "outgrown" her parents.
The 'Come & Get It' hitmaker has argued with Mandy and Brian on many occasions over the direction of her career and her on/off relationship with troubled star Justin Bieber, but it is believed family friction wasn't to blame for their split.
Mandy and Brian made it clear last month that they were unhappy about Selena spending time with Justin, who has had a number of run-ins with the law, as they believe he's responsible for driving her to rehab in January.
A source said previously: "They're doing their best to supervise them. They're tolerating it as long as they know that there is someone who has eyes on them all the time."
