Selena Gomez Hospitalized For Mental Health Issues & Lupus Complications
TMZ is reporting that Selena Gomez is now in treatment for mental health issues and has been hospitalized twice in the last two weeks.
A couple weeks ago, she apparently became “despondent and emotional” over a low white blood cell count, leading a family member to transport her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She came home a few days later, but went back a week after that when her white blood cell count wasn’t improving.
Sources claim Gomez demanded to be released from the hospital and had an “emotional breakdown,” even attempting to rip her IVs from her arm. Insiders told People magazine that she suffered a panic attack.
Now, she is reportedly undergoing dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) — a method often used to help treat several personality disorders and mental illnesses, including depression, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and substance abuse.
Get better soon, Selena!
