TMZ reports that Selena Gomez has entered a mental health facility after being hospitalized twice in two weeks—the second time for what the outlet describes as an "emotional breakdown."

Per TMZ's sources, the first hospital visit took place during the last week of September. Selena was "despondent and emotional over an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant," so a family member took her to the hospital in Los Angeles.
