Selena Gomez recently entered a treatment facility to help address ongoing issues related to anxiety and depression. She had been hospitalized twice in two weeks after experiencing an “emotional breakdown,” according to reports.
The 26-year-old singer was reportedly admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles at the end of September when it was discovered her white blood cell count was severely low related to her lupus and due to her kidney transplant last year.
Gomez was released from the hospital several days later but she was re-admitted shortly after.
According to TMZ, who was first to report the news, Gomez suffered an “emotional breakdown” and received medical attention at Cedars-Sinai after her white blood cell count became increasingly low.
The Good For You singer reportedly “freaked out” after learning about her condition. She also reportedly attempted to rip an IV out of her arm and insiders described the episode an “emotional breakdown.”
“Selena has been trying really hard recently to remain focused, and not let her health affect her,” a source told E News. “She has been actively writing new music and moved to Orange County for a change of pace and a fresh breath of air. Ultimately, with all of her arising health issues, Selena started to feel super overwhelmed.”
“She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point,” another source told People.
Gomez is now said to be at a psychiatric facility on the East Coast and is receiving DBT (dialectical behaviour therapy), which is a treatment used for various mental health conditions.
