Selena Gomez in rehab to manage her mental health

Selena GomezFollowing Selena Gomez‘s announcement that she’s taking a break from the limelight to manage “anxiety, panic attacks, and depression,” Us Weekly is reporting that the pop star has actually been recovering at a rehabilitation facility in Tennessee.

According to a source at Us, the Disney Channel alum — who was diagnosed with a chronic autoimmune disease in 2013 — sought treatment immediately after her announcement on August 30.

“Selena is dealing with lupus, but this break is to focus on her mental health,” the source close to the celeb said. “She can go to a very dark place.”

The treatment facility, which is just outside of Nashville, is described by the insider as a “private and quiet place,” but “super intense.”

While in recovery, the “Love You Like a Love Song” hitmaker has also reportedly stopped working on new music. “She was supposed to be recording, but she hasn’t told anyone when she’ll be back in studio,” a music industry source told Us.

This isn’t the first time Selena has sought professional help. In 2014, the singer went to rehab following her mother’s public miscarriage, and after being diagnosed with lupus, for which she received chemotherapy treatments.

“I went to two different locations for those treatments,” she told GQ in April. “I had to cancel my tour. I just needed time to be OK.”

Selena has yet to comment on the new reports.

    If only we all had the money to take a break and go to rehab for our mental health

    Selena, I applaud you for being strong and seeking help! Make sure you take care of yourself. That is way more important than the studio and tour because if you aren’t feeling well things can really get crazy, not literally, well maybe for some, but your health can get out of hand as you know with lupus. I hope you have Jesus in your life. He has helped me in some of the worst of times. I might not be here without his love and compassion. He is the best therapist as well as our new Pastor. I will pray for you and your family and please take as much time as you need and put everything else out of your mind and focus on you! Gods Peace! James

    I agree with James ..If only more people would focus on their mental health there would be less young people killing themselves and to the lperson who said oh I wish must be nice to have that kind of money there are free mental health resources open to everyone if you look. Your mental health is as important as your physical health ..
