Selena Gomez posted a photo on Instagram saying that she will be taking a break on social media again, to be able to step back and live her present life to the moment. She was hospitalized twice in the last two weeks, seeking medical care for an ‘alarmingly low’ white blood cell count, experiencing an “emotional breakdown,” according to reports.
A reduction in the number of white blood cells is called leukopenia and can be common for those with active lupus. According to medical experts, leukopenia is a decrease in disease-fighting cells (leukocytes) in your blood.
“Selena has been trying really hard recently to remain focused, and not let her health affect her,” a source told E News. “She has been actively writing new music and moved to Orange County for a change of pace and a fresh breath of air. Ultimately, with all of her arising health issues, Selena started to feel super overwhelmed.”
“She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point,” another source told People.
Gomez has always been open about her mental health struggles and how she was able to cope with it. “I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome,” she told Harper’s Bazaar.
Gomez’s ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, have been reportedly seen crying after attending a service and being comforted by his friends. “He was extremely upset over what was happened to Selena. He feels like she is part of his life and he wants her to be happy and healthy.” A source told.
Jelena had rekindled their romance last year, when Justin learned about Selena’s lupus and kidney transplant—he wanted her in his arms again, to take care of her, and treat her better. They reportedly split up again earlier this year, and not long after Justin sparked back up his relationship with Hailey Baldwin, and proposed to her in July.
It is rumored that Justin’s proposal and private marriage suspicions partially caused Selena’s breakdown. Who can blame her? With their on and off relationship, and her song ‘Back To You’, it basically meant that either will always come back to each other’s arms whatever happens.
