Selena Gomez is reportedly seeking treatment after suffering an emotional breakdown.
Selena is having a difficult time right now. According to TMZ, the singer is seeking treatment at a mental health facility for the second time in two weeks.
They claim she was “despondent and emotional” at some point in the last week of September “over an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant,” so a family member checked her into a Los Angeles hospital.
Gomez suffers from lupus, an autoimmune disease.
Selena was “re-admitted late last week because her low blood cell count persisted, and it threw Selena into a downward emotional spiral,” TMZ reports.
The pop star wanted to leave the hospital, but doctors informed her that she couldn’t, which sent her on an “emotional breakdown.” They say she tried to remove the IVs herself, had “a meltdown” and “freaked out.”
Selena is currently seeking treatment at an East Coast psychiatric facility.
Selena is reportedly receiving dialectical behavior therapy, also known as DBT. According to PsychCentral.com, DBT is “a type of psychotherapy — or talk therapy — that utilizes a cognitive-behavioral approach.”
It can be used to treat people with borderline personality disorder.
“The theory behind the approach is that some people are prone to react in a more intense and out-of-the-ordinary manner toward certain emotional situations, primarily those found in romantic, family and friend relationships.”
Selena’s friends and family support her decision to seek treatment.
A source connected to Selena told CNN she “has the full support of her friends and family.”
They double down on TMZ’s report: “she was recently hospitalized after complications from her kidney transplant, and she’s committed to focusing on her health.”
Justin Bieber spotted crying in public hours after the news broke.
No one can confirm why Justin Bieber was in tears as he left church following the reports of Selena’s hospitalization, but it is a little suspect. You can see photos of that here.
Terrible, awful, nasty rumors pop up.
Unfortunately, Gomez is a very public figure, and the target of sites like Crazy Days And Nights and Blind Gossip – who claim without any credible source Selena’s hospitalizations are actually because she tried hurting herself.
“When [Female Singer] heard that they got married, she thought it was a joke,” they write. “When she found out it was true, it sent her over the edge. She pretended she didn’t care but she actually cared a lot. She was horribly depressed. We knew she was going to hurt herself. All the other health excuses you are hearing were just a cover to get her back into the hospital.”
Selena is on the mend.
A source tells Us Weekly the Revival singer is “currently resting and getting treatment for a series of panic attacks related to ongoing medical issues.”
They add “she’s definitely improving every day” and “could come back soon.”
“She’s not in, like, a 30-, 60-, 90-day program. Her treatment is open-ended.”
Get well soon, Selena.
