E! Online reported that Selena Gomez has left the psychiatric facility where she’d been treated since early October for what’s been described as an “emotional breakdown.” A source said, “Selena is out of her treatment program in NYC and is doing much better.”
The singer was reportedly hospitalized a number of times for medical issues related to her Lupus and subsequent kidney transplant. The stress of that led to the so-called “breakdown,” according to an insider. But now, dishes the insider, Selena feels “refreshed and is in a better head space.”
Still, Selena will continue consult with health care professionals, adds the source. She reportedly “wants to lay low for a while and isn’t ready to go full force into working yet.”
Prior to the incident, Selena had taken a break from social media, writing, “Just remember – negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings.” She’d also done an Instagram Live video in which she described feeling like “people were picking me apart.”
NOTE: E! has since removed their story on Gomez’s reported release.
