Selena Gomez hospitalized for mental health treatment

Selena Gomez hospitalized for mental health treatment

Before her DBT treatment, it seems that Selena has reportedly checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. twice during the past weeks, reports TMZ.

They also said that she "freaked out" and attempted to pry IVs from her arms, and some insiders called what happened an 'emotional breakdown'.

She is said to be now receiving dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) which is used to treat various mental health disorders and is something she has had in the past.

"She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point", a source told People.

Gomez previously shared her struggles with mental health issues in an interview with Harper's Bazaar, detailing that she suffers from anxiety and depression.

In 2017, Selena underwent a kidney transplant when her Lupus condition left her organs inflamed, though it seems the star is still suffering from the side-effects.

"She realized she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues".

DBT is a cognitive behavioural treatment used to give patients skills to manage painful experiences, according to Psychology Today.

She may have been referring to being a target of negative social media comments when former flame Justin Bieber got engaged to model Hailey Baldwin very soon after splitting from her.

Days earlier she opened up to fans in an hour-long Instagram Live session, in which she revealed 'depression was my life 'for five years straight'. "Kindness and encouragement only for a bit!"

Gomez was just 18 when she started dating Bieber back in 2010. Sources claim that she wanted to leave but was told by doctors she couldn't.
