Fans around the world have poured onto social media to pray for U.S. singer Selena Gomez amidst reports that she was booked into a mental health facility after suffering a breakdown.

It's not the first time that Selena has been treated for mental health issues with DBT.

However, this isn't Selena's first time attending a facility for her mental health, the star who is always open about how she is feeling, completed a two-week programme in NYC earlier this year, reportedly receiving "dialectical behaviour therapy".

According to TMZ, Gomez was admitted to L.A. hospital Cedars-Sinai in September with an "alarmingly low white blood cell count". Selena tried ripping the IV's out of her arm.

We're told Selena is now at an East Coast psychiatric facility and is receiving dialectical behavior therapy - DBT. Gomez didn't attend the American Music Awards last night and the site notes that her team has been virtually silent recently.
