Selena Gomez was hospitalized for emotional breakdown not because of her failed relationship with The Weeknd and Justin Beiber but because she was reportedly in low spirits and emotional over an alarming low white blood cell count.
A source tells ET that “Selena has dealt with depression for a while and her and the people around her have always kept an eye on how she feels, even more so since her kidney transplant. Selena wasn’t feeling well and went to the hospital, as she does whenever she feels off. After further monitoring it was decided that Selena would seek treatment at a [mental health] facility.”
TMZ reports that the singer was hospitalized twice within the last few weeks, both times for a low white blood cell count. Gomez was released days later, but re-admitted late last week due to continued health issues stemming from her kidney transplant, according to the publication’s source. The hospitalization drove Gomez to have an “emotional breakdown” where she had a “meltdown” and “freaked out” when she wasn’t allowed to leave.
She is currently at an East Coast psychiatric facility and receiving dialectical behavior therapy, which she has received in the past, per the site.
