Selena Gomez is receiving treatment at a mental health facility, TMZ is reporting.

Both of these visits were due to her low white blood cell count, but the outlet said that the second visit to the clinic 'threw Selena into a downward emotional spiral'.

The news comes after Gomez opened up about taking a step back from social media and as she works on the follow-up album to 2015's Revival.

Around this same time a year ago, Gomez shocked fans by revealing that, due to lupus complications, she'd received a kidney transplant from her best friend Francia Raisa over the summer.

Before her DBT treatment, it seems that Selena has reportedly checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. twice during the past weeks, reports TMZ. "Selena tried ripping the IV's out of her arm.", TMZ claimed. We're told Selena had "a meltdown" and "freaked out".

"She realized she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues".

Fans of the star took to social media on Thursday to show their support and pray for her.

Gomez is now at a psychiatric facility on the East Coast, getting dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), which treats a variety of mental health issues. The "It Ain't Me" singer started giving away her clothes on Instagram and sent a freakish message to Jennifer Lopez on Instagram, which was the final straw before announcing a social media hiatus.

Selena previously booked herself into a Tennessee facility in 2016 after she also suffered anxiety and depression during her Revival tour, Teen Vogue reports.

"Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody's feelings". But, the doctors advised her not to do so.

"I feel like I've been private so much because I'm so terrified of what these magazines are going to say about me", she shared in an Instagram Story.
