Selena Gomez is reportedly receiving treatment for an “emotional breakdown”

The 26-year-old singer – who underwent a kidney transplant last year – has been hospitalised twice in the last two weeks, the first was after she became despondent and emotional when she was revealed to have had an “alarmingly low” white blood cell count.

Sources told TMZ a family member took Selena to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles, and though the Wolves singer was released a few days later, she was readmitted late last week because her low blood cell count hadn’t changed and the knowledge sent Selena into a downward emotional spiral.

The Bad Liar hitmaker tried to leave shortly afterwards but was told she couldn’t, prompting Selena to have a “meltdown” and “freak out” as she tried to rip the drips out of her arm

Currently the brunette beauty is believed to be at a psychiatric facility on the East Coast and is receiving dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), which she has undergone before and which is used to treat a variety of mental health disorders

Selena hasn’t been seen in public for a few weeks and recently told fans she was taking another break from social media

She wrote on Instagram: “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. (sic)”

The It Ain’t Me singer – who is the most popular person on Instagram, with 142 million followers – previously explained she takes regular social media breaks as she wants to live in the real world

She shared: “I’m not on the internet; I haven’t been on the internet in months. I don’t have my password for Instagram. I have no apps on my phone, no photo editing apps.

“I have Peak, a brain game. The reason why is, it’s not real to me, I know my voice is very prominent, but I’m not careless with it. I’m selective. ”
