Singer Selena Gomez is said to be receiving treatment at a mental health facility after a rough couple of weeks.

Multiple sources tell TMZ, the 26-year-old singer was at her Studio City, CA home the last week of September when the first emergency hit. After suffering from apparent mental breakdown, the singer, who underwent kidney transplant previous year, is presently being treated at a mental facility.

The site notes that it's the second time in two weeks that she's sought urgent medical care due to an "alarmingly low white blood cell count".

Sources told TMZ a family member took Gomez to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles, and though the Wolves singer was released a few days later, she was readmitted late last week because her low blood cell count hadn't changed and it had sent Gomez into a downward emotional spiral. "She's doing better now and is seeking treatment on the East Coast", a source told PEOPLE.

According to TMZ she tried to leave the hospital but doctors insisted she couldn't in her condition.

Fans of the star took to social media on Thursday to show their support and pray for her.

Insiders claim Gomez hopes that dialectical behavior therapy - which aims to identify and avoid patterns of negative thinking - will help her cope with the stress surrounding her health.

Gomez first sought treatment at Arizona's Dawn of the Meadows facility in early 2014.

"Mood lol (I was looking at myself in the mirror - like an idiot!)" she wrote under the photo, later editing it to add, "Update: taking a social media break".

Selena previously booked herself into a Tennessee facility in 2016 after she also suffered anxiety and depression during her Revival tour, Teen Vogue reports.
