Selena Gomez Has Emotional Breakdown Inside Hospital, Tries To Rip IV Out Of Her Arm
There was talk the past few weeks about Selena Gomez’s mental health. She revealed on her Instagram account that she had been battling depression for the past 5 years. And on September 23, she announced that she would be taking a break from social media.
Well now we are learning that the 26-year-old star has been hospitalized twice in the last 2 weeks.
In the last week of September, Gomez was inside her home in Studio City and she was reportedly really down about an extremely low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant. She was reportedly despondent and extremely emotional, so a family member drove her to the hospital.
She was released a few days later, but then had to be re-admitted again last week because the low blood cell count continued. Selena did not like this. She reportedly freaked out inside the hospital and “tried ripping the IV’s out of her arm.”
Sources describe it as an emotional breakdown. Selena is now at an East Coast psychiatric facility where she is receiving dialectical behavior therapy, which is a therapy that treats a wide range of mental health disorders.
Pretty sad stuff. She has obviously been struggling for a while now. She most likely had mental health issues before her Lupus diagnosis, but it’s clear the illness has made her depression worse. It’s a lot to deal with, especially when you’re in the spotlight.
We wish her all the best! Work on you, Selena!
