Selena Gomez is seeking treatment after suffering an emotional breakdown while in hospital, PEOPLE reports.
The 26-year-old was hospitalised twice in the last two weeks.
During her second visit, the singer suffered a panic attack.
“She has had a tough few weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the tipping point,” a source told PEOPLE.
“She realized she needed to seek additional help for her ongoing emotional issues. She’s surrounded by close family and has a lot of support. She’s doing better now and is seeking treatment on the East Coast.”
The news comes just days after Gomez announced she'd be taking a break from social media.
Gomez wrote, “As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember— negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings. Obvi."
Gomez also suffers from lupus, an inflammatory disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues.
It was first revealed in 2015 that she’d undergone chemotherapy to treat the disease.
In 2016, Gomez's best friend Francia Raisa donated the star a kidney.
