Selena Gomez is reportedly in a treatment facility after suffering from an emotional breakdown.

The 'Back To You' singer has entered a mental health facility after being hospitalized twice in two weeks.

TMZ reported that the first time was due to a health scare and the second due to an emotional breakdown.

Selena was first admitted in the last week of September because she was "despondent and emotional over an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant,". A family member brought her to a hospital in Los Angeles.

Several days later the Wizards of Waverly Place actress was released from the hospital but she was then"re-admitted late last week because her low blood cell count persisted, and it threw Selena into a downward emotional spiral."

According to TMZ, Selena experienced an "emotional breakdown" while she wanted to leave the hospital. Staff told her she could not leave and is not said to be at a psychiatric facility on the East Coast. She is receiving Dialectical Behaviour Therapy at this facility or DBT. DBT is a treatment used for many mental health conditions.

During the Summer of 2017, Selena had undergone a kidney transplant. She opened about the transplant in September of 2017 on Instagram saying;

 'I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.'

Selena Gomez Opens Up About Kidney Transplant

She had to cancel the remainder of her Revival tour due to suffering from lupus. 

 

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

She also opened up about depression and anxiety in an interview with Bazaar magazine in March saying;

“I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome,” 

 “There won’t be a day when I’m like, ‘Here I am in a pretty dress — I won!’” 

“I think it’s a battle I’m gonna have to face for the rest of my life, and I’m okay with that because I know that I’m choosing myself over anything else.”

 

 

 

 

Alright. Speaking from my heart for over an hour to someone who puts those thoughts into paid words can be hard for me. The older I get the more I want my voice to be mine. This is all apart of my work within an industry that’s been around longer than all of us have been. The purpose of my interview was three fold. My work with A21, my new collection with Coach, and some new music. As I’m aware there will always be interests in one’s personal life because that’s the pace of our ‘social’ generation. I’m grateful for my position and I will always find ways to make my job more about others and giving back— all while having the best time with my music, fashion, film and my love for learning about the world that I’m eager to tap into more and more. Church is a name for something far more personal. There’s always agenda seeking information on such a subject and I understand why. Rarely do I mention church (and I didn’t) but I’ll always feel comfortable talking about my values and beliefs. I respect that from everyone and anyone. I understand that reporters are working to grab the attention of a reader, however I will always work to ensure that what is public represents my truth. I’m a bit bummed but rarely surprised. Y’all know me and my heart. I can’t help it. So I’ll post some of MY photos from the collection and work with A21. My heart. And maybe edit my actual lyrics as you will all hear it soon 😊 I love you guys to the moon and back. For more information on the work I do with A21 please, please visit link in my bio. So much more on that soon!
