Selena Gomez is reportedly receiving mental health treatment, after suffering an “emotional breakdown”.
TMZ has reported that the 26-year-old singer is seeking treatment after being hospitalized twice over the past two weeks.
In the last week of September, friends of Selena have alleged that she was “despondent and emotional” over her low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant.
The former Disney star was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital, where she stayed for a number of days before being released.
But then late last week, Selena had to be re-admitted for the same problem, which reportedly tipped her over the edge.
The singer allegedly tried to leave the hospital, but doctors insisted she couldn’t in her condition.
Insiders say Selena then “freaked out” and had “a meltdown”, tearing the IV lines out of her arm.
The songstress was then transported to an psychiatric facility on the East Coast, where she is currently receiving dialectical behaviour therapy.
Selena has undergone DBT in the past, and it’s used to treat a number of mental health disorders.
The news comes after Selena announced that she was taking a break from social media on September 24.
“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,” she told her fans.
‘Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember — negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.”

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.
The hitmaker has had a rocky year, following her split from Justin Bieber.
The on-off couple reignited their romance for a few months at the start of 2018, but eventually parted ways once again.
Not long after their split, Justin got engaged to Hailey Baldwin, and rumours are rife that the pair secretly tied the knot in September.
