American singer, actress, and producer and Justin Bieber Ex, Selena Gomez has been admitted into a mental health facility after being hospitalized twice in two weeks for “emotional breakdown.”
Sources told TMZ the singer had “a meltdown” while trying to rip IVs out of her arms, with the incident described as an “emotional breakdown”.
Another source told People magazine Gomez had a “panic attack” during the second hospital visit and it prompted her to seek treatment.
“She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point,” they told the magazine.
“She realised 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.”
TMZ claims Gomez is receiving dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and has received that same type of medical care in the past.
According to Sane Australia, DBT is used to treat a range of mental health issues such as borderline personality disorder, self-harm, suicidal behaviour, depression, eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Last month Gomez, who is one of the most followed people on Instagram, told her 144 million followers she would be taking a break from social media.
“Just remember — negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings,” she wrote in her last Instagram post.
Gomez, who had copped negative comments over her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber’s engagement to model Hailey Baldwin, also told fans in an Instagram Live question and answer she had struggled with depression for the past five years.
Recall that Selena was a victim of hateful comments on social media after her ex, Justin Bieber, got engaged to Hailey Baldwin.
Gomez has suffered from a number of health issues over the years, undergoing a stint in rehab in 2014.
