In August, she announced she was cancelling the remaining dates of her Revival tour, and it seems that Selena Gomez’s health has taken a turn for the worse.
The singer and actress has reportedly checked into a rehab for the second time since 2014, Us Weekly reports.
Insiders tell the publication the 24-year-old is working through "anxiety, panic attacks and depression" at a facility based in Tennessee.
Onlookers tell US Weekly they spotted Selena having lunch with her grandparents at a local restaurant last week.
The report also claims the star is putting her new music on hold, with a source saying, “She was supposed to be recording, but she hasn’t told anyone when she’ll be back in [the] studio."

In late 2013, it was revealed Sel had been diagnosed lupus, an autoimmune disease which can often cause anxiety and depression.
Then, in August she announced that she’d be taking “time off” to focus on her health, cancelling 34 dates of her world tour as a result.
Selena cancelled the remainder of her Revival tour dates to focus on her health.
At the time, the former Disney star issued a statement on August 30 that said, “I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges."
“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. I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best.”

Earlier this year, she spoke to GQ about her 2014 rehab stint, saying: "I got diagnosed with lupus. My mum had a very public miscarriage. So I had to cancel my tour. I needed time to just be OK."
Last year, she admitted to undergoing chemotherapy for the disease, which has no cure.
