Selena Gomez has entered a mental health facility for treatment following an emotional breakdown, according to reports. 

This is the second time that the 26-year-old singer has been hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. in the past two weeks – in connection with her Lupus as well as last year's kidney transplant, sources tell TMZ.

Gomez was despondent over her "alarmingly low white blood cell count," sources say, and she had a breakdown. She's currently at an East Coast psychiatric facility undergoing dialectical behavior therapy, TMZ reports.

Back on September 23, Gomez announced she was taking a break from social media, saying, "Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody's feelings. Obvi."
