After it was brought to her attention that a fan who runs a Selena Gomez Instagram account was suicidal and had posted a very graphic note about ending her life the next morning the Fetish singer reached out to help.
The singer’s attention was first drawn to the suicidal woman, who runs a Selena Gomez fan account, after a number of caring social media users found her suicide note online and tagged Gomez in the comments. In the allegedly graphic post, the individual explained how she planned to end her life the next morning.
The superstar took notice, and took matters into her own hands, personally reaching out to the fan in question via direct message on instagram. Selena wrote QUOTE “I don’t care if you love or hate me, suicide is never the answer. If you need someone to talk to, please dm me – you are loved by your family and friends, trust me. I love you.”
The Blast reports that shortly after Selena’s message, police showed up at the woman’s home and that she is now receiving psychiatric care.
This isn’t the first time the singer-actress has saved and comforted a suicidal fan. In 2015, when the star noticed that an online admirer seemed to be going through a difficult time, Gomez reached out to the potentially suicidal fan by sharing an encouraging message on her own Instagram account. She wrote, “By me following you is not me saying it’s ok to think these thoughts. It’s not me saying ‘hey you said sad things, so I’m going to follow you to make you feel better.’ God puts us in situations that are so unexplainably difficult for a reason.” Gomez added, “Before you think of taking your life, think of all the lives you could save. I love you.”
Mental health and suicide prevention are important issues to Gomez; she’s been vocal about her own battle with depression and this year she executive produced 13 Reasons Why which addresses teen suicide head on.
If you’re struggling or having thoughts of suicide, we ask you to please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255. Thank you so much for hanging out with me on Clevver News, I’m Zoë LIllian, and I’ll see you next time.
