Selena Gomez is Seeking Treatment for her Mental Health

Selena Gomez is reportedly back in therapy after suffering anxiety and depression.

The 24-year-old singer told PEOPLE she wanted to "focus on maintaining [her] health and happiness" after continuing her battle with depression.

Last year, Selena revealed she was diagnosed with lupus and underwent chemotherapy, before checking herself into a treatment facility in early 2015.

"That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke," she told Billboard at the time. “I wanted so badly to say [to say to gossip magazines], ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re assholes.'"

She has since been vocal about suffering anxiety and depression as a side effect of the autoimmune disease.

This year Selena made a comeback, touring her successful Revival album. However, the star cancelled the rest of her world tour in August, saying she "wasn't in a good place emotionally."

She has now confirmed she is now taking time for herself and seeking treatment for "anxiety, panic attacks and depression."

“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," she said in a statement at the time.

"Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues."

That's what can happen if you let Beiber too close to you. Just get a job as a checkout chick and you can leave all this *** behind you.
