Selena Gomez hospitalized, reportedly has 'emotional breakdown'

TMZ reports the singer was hospitalized twice within the last few weeks for low white blood cell count due to her kidney transplant previous year.

While the 26-year-old was reportedly released a few days later, TMZ noted that she had to be readmitted sometime during the beginning of October due to her still-low white blood cell count.

The former Disney child star is now at an East Coast psychiatric facility and is receiving dialectical behaviour therapy, DBT.

Selena Gomez is reportedly seeking treatment after suffering an alleged mental breakdown. This wouldn't be Selena's first time of receiving DBT. "Kindness and encouragement only for a bit!"

She may have been referring to being a target of negative social media comments when former flame Justin Bieber got engaged to model Hailey Baldwin very soon after splitting from her.

The news comes two weeks after Selena announced that she was taking another break from social media. "We also need to feel allowed to fall apart", she told Vogue magazine a year ago. "I could've had a stroke", said Gomez of her break in a Billboard cover story. The "Wolves" singer was reportedly hospitalized twice in the last weeks, according to TMZ, who first broke the news.


After Gomez was admitted to the hospital again she wanted to leave but wasn't allowed to.

Selena was previously treated for mental health issues with DBT in 2014.

"Selena is freaking out about this", a source close to the "Slow Down" singer told Radar over the summer. The Wizards of Waverly Place star has received this kind of therapy earlier too.

"I think I was on autopilot for about five years, kind of just going through the motions and figuring out who I am and just doing the best I could". More mature and maybe acknowledging that she needed to live better.

To recap, Justin and Selena dated on and off from 2010 and gave their relationship another go in late 2017, calling it quits for good in March of this year. As long as she stays with it, we can't help but feel hopeful.
