Selena Gomez was recently hospitalized after suffering an emotional breakdown. Selena is currently seeking treatment at an East Coast psychiatric facility receiving dialectical behavior therapy.
Her Journey with depression
She has always been open about her struggle with depression and anxiety, in multiple interviews.
Since undergoing a kidney transplant last year, Selena has been in and out of hospitals frequently. Selena was recently in the hospital twice due to low white blood cell count. During her second visit, she suffered a panic attack which caused her to seek treatment.
According to TMZ, Selena recently did an Instagram live where she opened up about her depression and how she has been dealing with it for the past 5 years.
“Depression was my life for 5 years straight. Depression and anxiety were at the forefront of everything that I did in my life. Every single thing. And I would still do it, like, I would make myself have the courage to just keep going and I think that’s slowly but surely happened,” she said in her video.
Could Justin Bieber be the reason?
There have been a lot of speculations lately as to Justin’s involvement in Selena’s breakdown. Since Justin announced his engagement to Hailey Baldwin, people have been showing concern for ex-girlfriend Selena.
The news of Selena’s breakdown hit Justin hard
‘It’s hard for him to hear that she isn’t doing well,’ a Justin source said after the Canadian star was seen crying in a vehicle with his wife Hailey the day news came out that Selena was getting treatment.
Back in 2014, when the couple split, Selena went to rehab and was seeking treatment for alcohol, pot and prescription Ambien at the time.
The break up always affects her physical and mental health. As we all know Justin was Selena’s ‘Big Love’.
Selena and Justin last rekindled their romance about a year ago before splitting up in March. And soon after, Justin proposed to longtime friend and ex-girlfriend Hailey Baldwin in July.
Justin was spotted leaving Hillsong Church and being comforted by friends after the news of Selena’s breakdown was made public.
Both Justin and Selena attend Hillsong Church. He attended the service on Wednesday alone, not accompanied by his current wife Hailey. The next day Justin was seen again, this time along with Hailey, crying in his car.
We can only imagine how hard it must be for Justin to cope with this news. Even though he has immense respect and love for his wife. Selena always held a special place in his heart and he expressed in multiple interviews what plenty of things he learned from Selena and their relationship. Too bad it didn’t work out.
The support was shown for Selena
During this difficult time in Selena’s life, her family and friends have been extremely supportive and been helping her get through therapy.
Celebrities have shown their support as well. Jennifer Anniston being one of them. Despite their age difference, the two have been very close friends for years.
A source close to Jennifer revealed that “Jennifer is an extremely caring person. It hurts her heart to know that Selena is struggling like this and she is absolutely there to offer advice and support. She sees Selena like a little sister and is doing all she can to help her.”
Cardi B. and Demi Lovato have also shown support for the singer.
Demi is also said to be ‘heartbroken’ over the singer’s reported meltdown while Cardi B sent her a special message in which she said: ‘… I just want to let her know girl, you’re beautiful. Just hold on because even sometimes, I feel like I be losing my mind [sic].’
Our prayers are with Selena. We hope she recovers soon and comes back with her amazing music!
