Selena Gomez’s Suicide Message: The Reason She Reached Out To Struggling Fan
Although Selena is an extremely fortunate person, she has also endured her fair share of heartache in her 22 years. Between her roller coaster relationship with Justin Bieber, 20, her battle with lupus, and her two-week stint in rehab, life hasn’t always been easy on Selena. But she’s always shown great strength, grace and resiliency in the face of these challenges, which is why we’re so glad that she’s willing to share her wisdom with her fans.

She reads their messages as much as she can and she takes it very seriously when anyone talks about suicide or depression because she knows exactly what it feels like to be depressed,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s been through that hell herself and she still has her dark moments.”
“She has a huge heart, and that’s part of the reason life is so hard for her sometimes,” our insider adds. “She feels everything so intensely and she feels other people’s pain too.”
