Selena Gomez Reportedly Enters Mental Health Facility After An Emotional Breakdown
The singer has been experiencing complications with Lupus
Selena Gomez has reportedly entered a mental health facility to help address her ongoing problems with anxiety and depression.
An insider told E! News that the 26-year-old has been “trying really hard” to remain focused on her career and to not let her health problems bring her down: “She has been actively writing new music, and moved to Orange County for a change of pace and a fresh breath of air. Ultimately, with all of her arising health issues, Selena started to feel super overwhelmed."
TMZ report that Selena experienced an “emotional breakdown” following two hospitalisations related to her Lupus and last year’s kidney transplant. She was reportedly treated at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles after her white blood cell count became dangerously low.
Earlier this year, Selena underwent a two-week treatment program in New York City for anxiety and depression, and she’s made the decision to head back to the same facility in order to undergo dialectical behavior therapy.
At the time, an insider told E! News: "She had a difficult year, especially towards the end, and she decided she wanted to spend some time focusing on herself. It was all about wellness and her health."
The singer has always been upfront with fans about her experience of mental health, telling Harper’s Bazaar: "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 OK with that because I know that I'm choosing myself over anything else."
We’re sending all our love to Selena and hope she receives the treatment she needs.
