Selena Gomez Has 'Emotional Breakdown' and Now Receiving Mental Health Treatment

Hannah Rogers | 11 October, 2018, 17:44

Selena Gomez is receiving mental health treatment after suffering an 'emotional breakdown'.

TMZ reported Thursday that the "Wolves" singer was hospitalized the first time after she broke down in September over an "alarmingly" low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant.

Members of her family then drove her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, before being released several days later.

However, weeks later the singer had to be re-admitted as her low blood cell count persisted.

Insiders claim Gomez hopes that dialectical behavior therapy - which aims to identify and avoid patterns of negative thinking - will help her cope with the stress surrounding her health. Gomez didn't attend the American Music Awards last night and the site notes that her team has been virtually silent recently.

It's not the first time that Selena has been treated for mental health issues with DBT. She insisted on leaving the hospital, but when doctors refused she had "a meltdown", "freaked out", and "tried ripping the IVs out of her arm".

"She realized she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues".

"She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point", a source told People.

In an Instagram post she wrote: "As much as I'm grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I'm equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I've been given".

The It Ain't Me singer - who with 142 million followers is the most popular person on Instagram - previously explained she takes regular social media breaks as she wants to live in the real world.
