Selena Gomez hospitalised after 'emotional breakdown'

Selena Gomez was trying to distance herself from the negativity of social media prior to her reported hospitalization for an emotional breakdown.

According to TMZ Selena was admitted into the treatment facility to treat ongoing issues related to anxiety and depression.

Selena was apparently at her home in Los Angeles in the last week of September when the first emergency happened and was driven to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by a family member.

However, this isn't Selena's first time attending a facility for her mental health, the star who is always open about how she is feeling, completed a two-week programme in NYC earlier this year, reportedly receiving "dialectical behaviour therapy".

However, weeks later the singer had to be re-admitted as her low blood cell count persisted.

Reports say that Gomez "freaked out" after learning about her condition and attempted to rip an IV tube from her arm.

She also visited Lovato in the hospital before her own downward spiral began again.

The "Wolves" singer, who suffers from the autoimmune disease lupus, is now being treated in an East Coast psychiatric facility.

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

Before leaving social media, Selena did an Instagram Live answering questions from fans and said depression had consumed her life for 5 years.

We hope she feels better soon. Her message referred to the hurtful impact of "negative comments".

The It Ain't Me singer - who with 142 million followers is the most popular person on Instagram - previously explained she takes regular social media breaks as she wants to live in the real world.
