Before knowing the whole incident let us know a little bit about the star Selena Gomez…

Updates On Selena Gomez’s Mental Health & Her Rolling Stone Profile
The Only Murders in the Building actress, 30, recently graced the cover of Rolling Stone for an intimate and heartbreaking interview in which she discussed the themes covered in the new documentary, as well as recent updates on her mental health in the weeks leading up to the release of My Mind & Me (it can now be streamed on Apple TV+ starting on November 4, 2022).
During the interview, Gomez revealed to the journal that she was initially anxious about the responses that her supporters might have to the personal documentary right before it was scheduled to be broadcast. The new documentary, which was supposed to only cover her while she was on her Revival tour at first, ended up showing how Gomez recovered from her 2019 diagnosis of bipolar disorder, her 2018 psychotic break, her 2017 kidney transplant due to her ongoing battle with lupus, a romantic heartbreak, and other painful obstacles.
She explained her position by saying, “Because I have the platform I have, it’s kind of like I’m sacrificing myself a little bit for a better purpose.” “I don’t mean to make it sound overly dramatic, but I was seriously considering not publishing this. In the end, Gomez wanted her fans to witness an intimate peek at her personal life in order to help people with similar situations, particularly those who also suffer from bipolar disease. She said, “God’s honest truth, a few weeks ago, I wasn’t sure I could do it…“
“I was like, ‘Okay if I can just do that for one person, imagine what it could do.’ Eventually, I just kind of went for it,” she explained. I just said, ‘Yes.'”
Gomez also disclosed to the publication that although she can now look back on her documentary with pleasure and thankfulness, the message that she wants viewers to take away from it is not that she is completely cured. (She emphasizes that the process of healing is a long one that can be difficult at times and that it does not happen overnight).
In an interview with Rolling Stone, she stated, “I’m not fine and just back to a joyful life.” The founder of Rare Beauty disclosed that she is concerned that she will not be able to carry children while taking the medications she is currently taking for her bipolar disorder.
Additionally, the magazine reported that she has participated in dialectical and cognitive behavioral therapy in an effort to “make bipolar my friend.”
Another message that Gomez wanted to convey to her fans was that in light of the fact that she would likely always struggle with bipolar disorder, she is presently concentrating on maintaining a good mindset and thinking back on how much she has progressed as a person and as a performer. She told the publication, “I’m depressed thinking about who I would be if it weren’t for the psychotic break, if it wasn’t for my lupus, and if it wasn’t for my diagnosis.” “I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the psychotic break if it wasn’t for my lupus, and if it wasn’t for my diagnosis,” she said.
Selena Gomez’s My Mind And Me (lessons To Learn)
Gomez said she heard voices during her Revival tour in 2018, but her documentary shows that she didn’t know what was really going on at the time. Theresa, her assistant, said that the singer of “Lose You to Love Me” was “hearing all these voices, and they just kept getting louder and louder.” Gomez was finally taken to a place where he could get help for his psychosis.
The Cut says that Gomez doesn’t remember much from this time, but in the documentary, friends and family say she was almost unrecognizable and suffering from paranoia. Soon after, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Gomez told her fans at the end of the documentary that she still tries to remind herself to put herself first and take care of herself. She said, “When you’re having trouble with your mental health, the most important thing is to know what to do and recognize that.” She also said, “I’m not ashamed of it.”
