Superstar Selena Gomez sounds like she’s in a very tough place right now.

According to a report from TMZ, the singing sensation had been in and out of the hospital for complications from a kidney transplant when things with her mental health took a turn for the worse. She was first admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in September. Things have only gotten worse since then.

TMZ reported the following details late Wednesday night:

We’re told Selena was released days later but had to be re-admitted late last week because her low blood cell count persisted, and it threw Selena into a downward emotional spiral.   

Soon after she was admitted she insisted on leaving, but doctors said she couldn’t. We’re told Selena had “a meltdown” and “freaked out.” Selena tried ripping the IV’s out of her arm. Several sources called the episode “an emotional breakdown.”

We’re told Selena is currently at an East Coast psychiatric facility and is receiving dialectical behavior therapy — DBT. The therapy treats various mental health disorders. Selena has received DBT in the past. 

These are the types of stories that I hate reading, hate writing and wish didn’t happen. You just hate to see people struggle with any kind of health issues, especially mental health issues because they often fly under the radar.

As I’ve said many times, I don’t think most people understand the struggles some celebrities go through. Most people just see them on television or listen to their music, and assume they live the perfect life. They have no idea what it’s like to be surrounded by people that you struggle to trust, live a life in the public eye and be surrounded by enablers at every single turn. Then, they often get publicly shredded when there are problems. It’s absurd.

I hope that Gomez gets the help she needs mentally and for her kidney transplant.
