Selena Gomez has checked into a mental health facility after suffering an emotional breakdown, can confirm.

TMZ reported Thursday that the "Wolves" singer was hospitalized the first time after she broke down in September over an "alarmingly" low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant.

After being released days later, Selena had to be re-admitted last week because her low blood cell count persisted, and it threw Selena into a complete meltdown.

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.

According the gossip rag, Gomez has since been transported to a psychiatric facility on the East Coast and is being treated with dialectical behavior therapy, or DBT.

Gomez hasn't been seen in public for a few weeks and recently told fans she was taking another break from social media.

"She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point", a source told People.

Before leaving social media, Selena did an Instagram Live answering questions from fans and said depression had consumed her life for 5 years. Her message referred to the hurtful impact of "negative comments".
