PEOPLE reports that the award-winning singer had been admitted to the hospital after suffering from low white blood cells, which is related to patients with Kidney transplants.
However, while in the hospital, Selena broke down and is now being treated for an emotional breakdown.
“She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point,” a source tells 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,” the source also told PEOPLE.
According to PEOPLE, Selena is presently undergoing dialectical behavior therapy, a therapy method designed to help try to identify, and then change, negative thinking and behavioral patterns.
It would be recalled that back in 2017, Selena Gomez had a successful kidney transplant which was donated by her best friend.
