It comes after she was hospitalised twice in two weeks.

TMZ is reporting that Selena Gomez has entered a mental health facility after being hospitalised twice in two weeks. The gossip site added that sources say the second time was for an “emotional breakdown”

Multiple sources apparently told TMZ she was “despondent and emotional” over a very low white blood cell count following her kidney transplant. A family member drove her to the hospital and she stayed for a few days.

She was re-admitted late last week as the problem persisted and it threw her in a “downward emotional spiral” according to the site.

Selena insisted on leaving soon after being admitted but wasn’t allowed.

Sources say the singer had “a meltdown” and “freaked out”, even trying to rip out the IV’s in her arm. The insiders called the episode “an emotional breakdown”

TMZ reports Selena is now at a psychiatric facility and is receiving dialectical behaviour therapy, which treats various mental health disorders. 

Selena shared on Instagram on September 23 she would be taking a break from social media saying, “Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.”

Before she left social media she did an Instagram Live where she answered questions from fans and she revealed depression consumed her life for five years.

We are sending Selena all our love!
