During the In Dubious Battle star's most recent visit to the hospital late last week, she had a panic attack, prompting her to take action and book herself into a facility in the American East Coast, a source told People magazine.
TMZ reports Gomez was hospitalized twice over the past few weeks, due to a low white blood cell count, a possible side effect experienced by kidney transplant patients. When doctors told her she couldn't leave the hospital, the sources said she had an "emotional breakdown" and attempted to rip IV tubes out of her arm. Several worldwide news reports suggest the singer has suffered an emotional breakdown.
The troubled singer reportedly checked into a facility on the east coast where she is undergoing dialectical behaviour therapy, which treats mental health disorders. After years of rumours about a substance abuse problem, Gomez also did a brief stint at a rehab clinic - though her publicity team blamed it on exhaustion.
