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

Selena Gomez has reportedly checked into a treatment facility on the East Coast to address "ongoing emotional issues", according to reports from TMZ and People.

The final Instagram she shared before allegedly entering treatment twice in the last month - once at the end of September and once in the first week of October - was posted on Sept. 23, and featured a smiling Gomez with a heartbreaking caption.

The former Disney starlet, who underwent a kidney transplant in September 2017, was at her Studio City, Calif. home two weeks ago when sources tell the site she became "despondent and emotional" over a low white blood cell count, leading a family member to transport her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Insiders revealed to People that Gomez had a "tough few weeks" and suffered a panic attack in the hospital. Because she couldn't just leave, Gomez reportedly "freaked out" and had "an emotional breakdown", attempting to pull the IVs out of her arm.

The website claims she is now being treated with dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) at an East Coast psychiatric facility. She was released after a few days but had to return last week with the same issue.

Soon after this news broke, Selena's fans started sending out wishes for her speedy recovery.

Fans of the star took to social media on Thursday to show their support and pray for her.

Gomez first sought treatment at Arizona's Dawn of the Meadows facility in early 2014.

She explained: 'As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Just remember - negative comments can hurt anybody's feelings.
