Selena Gomez mental breakdown rumors have started to swirl as Gomez travels the world on her “Revival” tour.
The Hollywood Gossip reports that Selena may be headed for a mental breakdown. The singer and actress is said to be rethinking her entire career, and even reached out to fans complaining that she has been feeling creatively unfulfilled and disconnected from her work and image.
“She has been having breakdowns and is rethinking her entire music career and life path right now.”
Selena is said to be “in a in a very, very bad place mentally.” Fans were shocked to see that Selena had lost a massive amount of weight recently, and even more worried when it emerged that Selena slimmed down after her BFF Taylor Swift criticized her weight behind her back. Selena eventually found out about the comments after mutual friends informed Selena about Taylor’s comments, as reported by Inquisitr.
“Selena recently found out some pretty horrible stuff Taylor has said about her, including about her weight and choice of boyfriends.”
As if that wasn’t enough, Taylor was said to be furious with Selena after Selena took Calvin Harris’ side in the Taylor/Calvin feud. The friendship between the singers was said to have suffered as a result. It sounds like Taylor expects total loyalty from Selena, though Taylor also feels no compunction about bad-mouthing Selena’s weight behind her back, possibly sparking an eating disorder!
Now, Selena has taken to Instagram to spark a war of words with her ex Justin Bieber, who asked fans to be kinder to his new beau Sophia Richie and threatened to set his Instagram to private if they didn’t stop the hate, as reported by Hollywood Life. Selena told Justin to be more appreciative of his fans because they will be around longer than any Bieber fling, and suggested that he stop posting private snaps of himself and his girlfriend if he’d like to see fewer rude comments.
The war quickly escalated, with Justin accusing Selena of using him to get attention. Selena shot back, saying that Justin cheated on her several times while they were together!
“Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love.”
Hollywood Life reports that Selena continues to monitor Justin’s flings with pretty girls and the actress has admitted that she gets jealous. The actress insists that she has Justin’s fans’ welfare in mind though, and that she only wants to see Justin at his best.
“Selena has always monitored Justin’s exploits with the various girls he is with and does get jealous but she is legitimately frustrated at his actions towards his fans.”
The Hollywood Gossip report claims that these various stresses are taking their toll on Selena Gomez, and the actress has turned to drinking and partying to cope in recent weeks.
“She’s totally spiraling downward. She’s been so unhappy and has been drinking and partying too much to cope.”
Selena has a history of turning to drink to deal with personal problems. A report by Celeb Dirty Laundry notes that Selena fell back on substance abuse after she lost Justin Bieber in 2014. The report also notes that Justin Bieber seems to act like a trigger that activates all of Selena’s existing problems: low self-esteem and “all of the bad stuff inside her”!
The writer muses that Selena has always spiraled out of control after Justin Bieber rejects her or cheats on her.
“Over the course of last year, we have watched Selena systematically ruin her own life while putting her future career in jeopardy…. Of course, Justin Bieber is bad news, but at this point her addictions and lacking self-esteem isn’t only because of him. I think Biebs simply triggers all of the bad stuff inside of Selena that already exists and every time he either rejects her or gets caught cheating she spins out of control.”
Fans seemed to agree with Selena that Justin should appreciate his devoted Beliebers a little more, and many people noted that it was big of Selena to defend Justin’s fans after they spent so many years hating on her while she was dating him!
One person wrote a lengthy post blasting Justin for using his fans to get money, status and cute girls, then not even allowing them to express themselves freely. The person suggested that Justin step back from fame if he can’t take the heat, and cheekily told Justin not to come crawling back “when you need money, or h**s”!
