Selena Gomez has entered rehab for a second time not long after she announced she would be going on a hiatus.
The 24-year-old pop star entered a facility in Nashville, Tennessee weeks after she revealed she suffered from “anxiety, panic attacks and depression.”
A source close to the singer told Us Weekly magazine: “Selena is dealing with lupus, but this break is to focus on her mental health. She can go to a very dark place.”
The publication reports that multiple sources have confirmed that the “Good For You” hitmaker has indeed been booked in at the facility they describe both as “private and quiet” and “super intense.”
Gomez entered rehab for the first time in 2014 after she had undergone chemotherapy to combat the chronic autoimmune disease.
In August, the star cancelled 34 dates on her current Revival Tour and told fans she had to do it to maintain her “health and happiness.”
“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” she said at the time. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”
“I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off.”
“Thank you to all my fans for your support,” the star said.
It is not yet known when Selena will return to the stage or the studio.
