Selena Gomez Seeking Mental Health Treatment After Emotional Breakdown
Selena Gomez has reportedly checked into a mental health facility after suffering what is being described as an emotional breakdown.
Per TMZ, the singer and former Disney actress has been hospitalized twice in two weeks, and she reportedly suffered the breakdown during her second stint in the hospital. She is reportedly receiving dialectical behavior therapy, which aims to treat mental health disorders.
“The 26-year-old singer was at her Studio City, CA home the last week of September when the first emergency hit,” reports the site. “We’re told she was despondent and emotional over an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant.”
After her low white blood cell count persisted, she reportedly suffered the breakdown; a source reportedly close to the singer revealed she attempted to take the IV drips out of her arm after doctors told her she would be unable to leave the facility.
Last summer, Gomez was given a kidney from her best friend Francia Raisa. The kidney was donated so that the “Taki Taki” musician would be able to manage her complications from Lupus a bit better. She has been virtually silent in the news after announcing she would be taking a break from social media.

Mood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror -like an idiot!) Update: taking a social media break. Again. As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.
