This isn’t good. According to Radar Online, Selena Gomez is currently receiving mental health treatment at a facility after suffering an emotional breakdown.
The singer, 26, was reportedly hospitalized twice in the last two weeks after experiencing a personal emergency. Selena became increasingly nervous over her extremely low white blood cell count following her kidney transplant, so a family member took her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA for medical attention.
The former Disney Channel star was reportedly released, but readmitted days later due to her continued low blood cell count. Selena allegedly had a “meltdown” after returning to the hospital and tried to rip the IV out of her arm when doctors wouldn’t let her leave.
The news of Selena’s hospitalization comes just months after her childhood best friend Demi Lovato tragically overdosed. Back in July, an insider close to Selena told Radar Online that the “Wolves” singer was “freaking out” about Demi because “she feels like it could have been her.”
Selena has been open and honest in the past about her mental health battles, specifically with depression and anxiety. On Sept. 23, she announced she would be taking another social media break to “step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given.”
In the past, she’s opened up to Vogue about how cutting out social media and going to therapy were crucial parts of her treatment. “I wish more people would talk about therapy,” she previously told the publication. “We girls, we’re taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who’s down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart.”
