Selena Gomez reportedly receiving treatment in hospital after suffering 'emotional breakdown'
Selena Gomez had to visit the hospital twice in a fortnight and on the second trip suffered a panic attack. She's decided to seek help.
Pop singer Selena Gomez has reportedly checked into a mental healthcare facility after reportedly suffering an emotional breakdown. The singer is said to have been hospitalized twice in a span of just a fortnight and she has decided to seek help.
The first breakdown happened towards the last week of September and the 26-year-old singer had to be rushed to emergency. She was at her Studio City, California home at the time. Reports say that she was suffering from a low white blood cell count. If you remember, she had undergone a kidney transplant last year. TMZ also reported that she was taken to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. by someone in the family.
Following this medical emergency, she had to go back to hospital just last week again because of the same issue. This reportedly has taken a huge emotional toll on the former Disney star. She also reportedly wanted to leave hospital, but she wasn't allowed to by doctors. She was also said to have had a panic attack too. "She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point,” a source told People. "She realized she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues. She’s surrounded by close family and has a lot of support. She’s doing better now and is seeking treatment on the East Coast.”
Just a few weeks prior to this report, Gomez had decided to take a break from social media. "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. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember— negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi," she had said announcing the sabbatical. She did not specify anything else during the announcement, but did respond to a fan who said that they were happy to see her happy. She had responded to the fan with, "Best I've ever been!"
2017 was certainly tough on Selena - she battled lupus and had to undergo a kidney transplant. Emotionally too, it has been a rollercoaster year. Her on again off again ex Justin Bieber got engaged to Hailey Baldwin and caused a stir when they kept fans guessing about whether they had tied the knot or not.
