TMZ reports that Selena Gomez was hospitalized twice in two weeks, with the second time being due to an emotional breakdown. She’s now currently in a mental health facility for treatment.

During the last week of September, Gomez was at her home in Studio City, California, when she suffered the first medical emergency. She was said to be down and emotional over a low white blood cell count after her kidney transplant. She was then taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Gomez was released days later, but taken back in due to a low blood cell count. The second hospitalization caused her to become very depressed. Sources claim that she wanted to leave but was told by doctors she couldn’t. She had “a meltdown” and “freaked out”, trying to rip the IVs out of her arm. It was said to be an emotional breakdown by witnesses.

Gomez is now at a psychiatric facility on the East Coast, getting dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which treats a variety of mental health issues. She has received DBT before.

Gomez has been out of the public eye for some time, with not much information about her available for weeks. She said on September 23 she was leaving social media. She wrote: “Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.

Gomez had a Instagram Live Q&A just before that, saying that she’s suffered from depression for five years. She received comments online from hateful people after Justin Bieber got engaged to Hailey Baldwin. The last photo of her taken in public was on September 27 with fans in Newport Beach, California. Gomez previously had rehab in 2014 and had a kidney transplant last year.
