Fans around the world have poured onto social media to pray for USA singer Selena Gomez amidst reports that she was booked into a mental health facility after suffering a breakdown.

While the 26-year-old was reportedly released a few days later, TMZ noted that she had to be readmitted sometime during the beginning of October due to her still-low white blood cell count.

Selena was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA twice in the last two weeks to monitor her blood cell count, the website reports.

The website claims she is now being treated with dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) at an East Coast psychiatric facility.

The outlet reported that when Gomez insisted upon leaving the hospital and was refused by doctors, she had a "meltdown", sources said, trying to rip an IV out of her arm and undergoing an "emotional breakdown".

Last year, she underwent a kidney transplant, receiving the organ from best friend Francia Raisa after being diagnosed with lupus. The site notes that the condition could stem from her kidney transplant.

Netflix was down more than 8 percent, Amazon was off 6 percent and Apple and Google were both down more than 4.5 percent. Berkshire Hathaway dipped 4.7 percent to $213.10 and reinsurer Everest Re slid 5.1 percent to $217.73.

Insiders revealed to People that Gomez had a "tough few weeks" and suffered a panic attack in the hospital. "She has been actively writing new music, and moved to Orange County for a change of pace and a fresh breath of air". Several sources called the episode "an emotional breakdown".

Gomez first sought treatment at Arizona's Dawn of the Meadows facility in early 2014.

It's not the first time the troubled singer, who announced a social media sabbatical in late September, has sought help.

She added, tellingly, "Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody's feelings".

She wrote on Instagram: "Taking a social media break".
