Selena Gomez just checked into a mental health facility after a rough couple of weeks. The Disney alum suffered a medical crisis due to a low white blood cell count, which landed her in the hospital on two separate occasions over the past two weeks.
A source says Gomez was “despondent and emotional” two weeks ago after she got the news that her white blood cell count was lower than usual. Family members took Gomez to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to get her treatment and settle her emotions.

She was released from the hospital a few days later but that was only the beginning of her downward spiral.
Gomez, who was previously diagnosed with lupus, returned to the hospital because her blood cell count did not go up. During her second stay at the hospital, Gomez suffered an emotional meltdown and reportedly tried to pull the IVs out of her arm.
According to Page Six, Gomez experienced a panic attack and is now being treated in a psychiatric hospital somewhere on the East Coast.
This is not the first time Gomez has checked into a mental health facility. Last year, the singer took a break from music to deal with anxiety and depression. She finished a program at a facility this past February, where she was treated for depression and anxiety.

Mood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror -like an idiot!) Update: taking a social media break. Again. 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.
Gomez contends that her mental issues are related to her fight with lupus. She has not said anything about her latest mental health crisis.
While Gomez deals with her mental issues, her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber is enjoying the married life with his new bride, Hailey Baldwin.
Inside sources claim that Gomez’s breakdown is related to Bieber’s marriage as the singer is still not over her former flame. Bieber tied the knot with Baldwin months after he parted ways with Gomez.
