Yesterday, news of Selena Gomez checking herself into a mental facility came out.
After being hospitalised two times in the past few weeks because of a low white blood cell count (often from kidney transplants), Selena reportedly suffered from an emotional breakdown.
“She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point,” a source told PEOPLE.
“She realized she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues. She’s surrounded by close family and has a lot of support. She’s doing better now and is seeking treatment on the East Coast.”
After the news broke, ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber was spotted leaving church being comforted by friends, crying.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Justin is really upset about the news. “Although he is engaged to Hailey, Selena holds a special place in his heart,” a source told the publication.
“Justin spent most of the day alone, and even took a solo hike to the Wisdom Tree in L.A. to get away and decompress. Justin then went to his church where he was noticeably upset, without Hailey, and was comforted by friends.”
While the pair broke up in May 2018, Justin still “wants the best for Selena. When the two rekindled their romance, he got to see how her health really affects her, so he understands how serious this is.”
Hopefully, Selena can recover swiftly <3
