Selena Gomez Has ‘Emotional Breakdown’ and Now Receiving Mental Health Treatment

Selena Gomez was hospitalized twice in the last 2 weeks … and the second time she suffered what sources called an emotional breakdown … she’s now at a mental health facility for treatment. Multiple sources tell TMZ, the 26-year-old singer…


Tyler Baltierra: I Had a Mental Breakdown Last Year, Too!

2017 was not a great time for the Baltierra family.

And that’s a pretty huge understatement.

Lots and lots of things happened for Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra last year, and it seems like not a whole lot of them were great.

Tyler’s father, Butch, kicked off the year dealing with his lifelong drug addiction, but thankfully he did check into a longterm rehab.

As far as we know, he’s still doing well, so that’s something.

Amber, Tyler’s sister, checked into rehab too with problems of her own.

Hopefully she’s doing as well as their father is!

As far as family stuff goes, those are clearly some pretty big ups and downs.

But nothing affected Catelynn and Tyler as badly as her miscarriage did.

As we saw last season on Teen Mom OG, the longtime couple made the decision last year to try for another baby.

They already had Carly, the girl Catelynn got pregnant with when they were teenagers, the one they placed for adoption.

And in 2015, they welcomed Nova, another darling little girl.

But after Nova was born, Cate suffered from severe postpartum depression.

It eventually got so bad that she checked into a treatment center, but even after leaving there, her depression persisted.

At some point early last year though, things started to turn around, and like we said, they decided the time was right to have another baby.

She got pregnant pretty soon after they started trying to conceive, and they quickly shared the news with family.

Then the miscarriage happened.

We didn’t see too much of it on the show, which is good.

As reality stars, they share a lot of themselves, but some things should stay private.

During one segment, we did see Tyler explaining what happened, and he was clearly broken up about it.

Catelynn, however, began contemplating suicide, so she checked into that treatment center once again.

We all know what happened after that — she completed six weeks of treatment, went home for a bit, then went back for six more weeks of treatment.

As difficult a time as she had then, things are looking up now.

She’s pregnant again, and she and Tyler both seem to be really excited about it.

But in a new interview, Tyler got really, really candid about how difficult things got last year, particularly with the miscarriage.

And man, is it rough to hear.

He calls the miscarriage a “traumatic loss” and admits that it was “very emotionally intense,” but he says that his first reaction was to tend to Catelynn.

“I ran to her, held her,” he recounts. “We cried. We just held each other for probably two hours and cried.”

“That was our way of kind of letting go and accepting reality for what it is.”

“From a guy’s perspective,” he continues, clarifying that he doesn’t mean “to sound sexist,” but “it’s almost more acceptable for a woman to break down and be emotional.”

“But I swear, as a man, when I walked away from Cate and I didn’t have to be so strong, I was breaking down every single day.”

When she went away to get treatment, he says “I was taking Nova to school and just crying every single day.”

“I’m assuming a lot of women do the same thing. It’s just not really talked about a lot with men.”

It’s heartbreaking to hear all of this, but there’s one thing that helped him cope, and that was his daughter.

Tyler says that “Seeing Nova and realizing that I can’t sit here and sulk in my pity” got him through the difficult time.

“I’ve gotta be strong, engage with my daughter, play with her, take her to the park.”

“I still had a job to do of raising her around the happiest environment I could make for her,” he explains.

“I kind of felt that she was my motivation to keep strong, looking at her and saying, ‘I did lose this child, but look at this beautiful child I’ve got now.'”

As touching as it is, he adds that Nova “helped me push myself forward and keep going.”

During that time, Tyler says that he’d put his daughter to bed, then “go in my room and cry about it.”

For him, it was important not to hide his emotions from her, but it was also important not to break down in front of her, either.

From where we’re sitting, it looks like handled the situation well.

In the newest clip of Catelynn and Tyler on Teen Mom OG, the one where they tell Nova they’re having a baby, she looks like a very happy little girl.

Hopefully, in other scenes, we’ll see more happiness from them.

After all they’ve been through, they definitely deserve it!


Kendall Jenner Opens Up About “Mental Breakdown”

Kendall Jenner might not be an almost-billionaire like her sister Kylie, but she’s still almost unimaginably successful. 

Kendall is one of the world’s highest-paid models, and her peers in the field have been effusive in their praise of her poise, grace, and confidence when walking the runway.

But as anyone who’s ever struggled with anxiety or depression can tell you, sometimes the most assured facade is concealing the most intense inner turmoil.

Kendall’s struggles with anxiety have been well-documented over the years, and while the 22-year-old says modeling has helped her in some ways to overcome her demons, she’s still prone to intense bouts of anxiety.

Kendall covers the new issue of Love Magazine, and in one of her most candid interviews to date, she reveals that she bowed out of scheduled fashion shows in Paris recently due to stress,

“Last season I didn’t do any shows,” Kendall says.

“Just ‘cause I was working in LA and I was like ‘Oof, I can’t right now – I’m gonna go crazy.'”

Kendall says her “debilitating anxiety” has caused her to opt for self-care over professional opportunities several times in the past.

She tells Love that there have been times when she’s “up in the middle of the night with full-on panic attacks,” adding that she begins to feel uncomfortable when she’s not in control.

“If something isn’t going the way I planned, I freak out,” Jenner says.

Fortunately, Kendall has been able to face her fears enough to become one of the most in-demand models working today.

No easy feat, as in addition to the stress of walking the runway in front of her industry’s best and brightest, Kendall’s personal life is under intense and constant scrutiny.

Currently, Jenner’s relationship with NBA star Ben Simmons is a subject of tabloid fascination.

Add to that the fact that a new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians kicked off Sunday night, and it’s hard to imagine how Kendall ever gets a moment’s privacy.

The situation would be enough to give anyone anxiety.

Tyler Baltierra Details Mental Illness in Powerful New Poem

Teen Mom OG star Tyler Baltierra struggles with his mental health, and has to defend himself and explain to fans that his mental illness doesn’t make him a bad parent.

He’s absolutely right. He has coping mechanisms, and one of those is expressing himself through poetry.

In a powerful and evocative new poem, he explains what it’s like to endure the fog of depression and anxiety on a daily basis.

On Instagram, Tyler Baltierra shared a somewhat freeform poem that, at first, might resemble prose.

“Living with this depression & anxiety causes hurt.” Tyler’s poem begins. “Its brain is like an alien stuck in a foreign body.”

A lot of people can feel that way. Particularly those who endure a chronic battle with an illness.

“That body just keeps getting up,” Tyler continues. “it keeps putting on these clothes & it goes about the day doing whatever is required.”

It sounds like he is describing an empty routine that feels devoid of meaning.

“But It barely eats,” Tyler laments. “It’s always weak & it’s always tired.”

Many feel betrayed by their flesh prisons, and Tyler is no exception.

“But I’m so confused,” Tyler writes. “I just don’t get it, because if it’s so weak & it’s so tired, then why can’t it sleep when it’s time for its mind to retire.”

Insomnia is a special kind of torment that adds insult to injury for those enduring the chronic fatigue that can accompany depression.

“It’s like its mind is this tire that keeps spinning in circles & it gets lost every time it takes a spin while driving on that thin of a wire.”

By this point, you have no doubt noted that retire and wire rhyme with some earlier words. There’s a lot of that going on.

“But even though it lacks the ability to see what is required,” Tyler says. “That doesn’t mean It’s not allowed to desire the love & compassion every other human being desires.”

“It feels like it’s a conspire to not have known this information prior,” Tyler writes.

He means a conspiracy, but he’s using poetic license to play with the word.

“Because now all these thoughts in its brain caused by all these demons inside won’t stop talking with such an evil tone that’s dire…”

To be clear, he’s not talking about delusions of demons. He’s talking about the horror of intrusive thoughts.

(On their own, intrustive thoughts are supposed to be prompts to do things that we don’t want to do, so that our horrified internal reactions reinforce our resistance to those impulses. Mental illness can make that much worse)

Tyler writes: “& that tone distracts it from ever being able to see the positivity in this life it could actually acquire.”

That’s depression for you.

Tyler Baltierra ends his poem with the tag: “#PoetryIsMyBrainsFreedom.”

The Teen Mom OG star has opened up about his mental health struggles in the past.

Recently, he shared a heartbreaking poem that he wrote while battling suicidal ideation after getting the news of his father, Butch Baltierra, once again going to jail.

A person’s parent’s screw-ups, as a parent or as a human being, can haunt their children well into adulthood.

Tyler has explained that he shares all of this, not only because expressing himself through poetry is therapeutic, but because he hopes to help people.

Sometimes, the most powerful thing that you can do for someone is to make them understand that they are truly not alone.

The comments under Tyler’s poem were filled with expressions of support and sympathy.

A number of followers mentioned that they very personally understood his experiences.

Others recommended CBD oil, which they say can alleviate anxiety and depression like marijuana without producing the high.

It is always heartwarming to see people come together with solutions that worked for them, but not every solution is universal.
