Selena Gomez is undergoing mental health treatment after suffering what’s being described as an “emotional breakdown.” The singer has been hospitalized multiple times over in recent with complications stemming from her 2015 lupus diagnosis, and was admitted previously this September for dangerously low white blood cell counts. Gomez is now believed to be undergoing mental health care in an east coast facility.
Gomez had been largely silent after announcing on Instagram that she would be taking a break from social media. The pop star’s mental and physical health battles have been well documented, including a 2014 rehab stint for addiction and multiple breaks from the public eye to deal with her physical and mental health. The singer is the latest in an ever-increasing string of stars seeking treatment, as mental health issues like anxiety and depression continue to rise to the forefront in the music world.
