Selena Gomez has reportedly entered a treatment facility after suffering an “emotional breakdown” following a number of hospitalisations.

The US popstar, 26, is thought to be currently undergoing treatment for her mental health in the US, having been open about her battles with anxiety and depression in the past.

According to TMZ, the Fetish singer was admitted to hospital twice in the last two weeks for issues relating to her kidney transplant and Lupus diagnosis.

And it seems that the medical setbacks have taken their toll on the singer’s mental health, with a source saying that she had been left feeling “despondent and low”.

Gomez recently told fans that she would be taking a break from social media as she was in need of some time away from Instagram and Twitter.

“Update: taking a social media break. Again,” she wrote in a post. “As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given.”

She added: “Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi.”

Gomez revealed that she had undergone an emergency kidney transplant last summer due to her continuing battle with lupus.

The pop star told fans that her best friend Francia Raisa had donated one of her own as the “ultimate gift” during surgery.

Gomez cancelled a series of concerts in 2016 after revealing that she was struggling to cope with anxiety and depression, brought on by her Lupus diagnosis.
