The decision of Selena Gomez to seek treatment after an emotional crisis caused the fans to fight to determine the cause of their stress. While many have speculated that Justin Bieber's recent marriage to Hailey Baldwin could have been the turning point, a source close to the singer of "Back to You" argues that it was one of many factors, both emotional and physical.
"It's been a combination of things that affect your emotional health," the source tells PEOPLE. "She has certain triggers and she is also a very sensitive person and that is why she isolates herself from social networks." The negativity and hate that she receives affects her more deeply than most celebrities because she takes everything in serious".
In an Instagram post on September 23, Gomez, 26, told fans that she would be "taking a break on social media" as an act of personal care.

The source does allow Bieber, who was seen crying in his car on Thursday, and Baldwin's love that made the headlines, to have made things difficult for the star while dealing with the health problems arising from his battle with lupus and kidney transplant resulting in the spring of 2017.
"Yes, having Justin's relationship everywhere is not easy, but she has also been dealing with other stressful situations and returning to the hospital was really difficult and brought back difficult memories," says the source. "It's not fair to say that this caused him or what caused him because depression and anxiety are very stratified, she knows it's something she will face for the rest of her life, but she is committed to addressing her problems head-on."

Gómez was hospitalized twice in the past few weeks, both times for a low white blood cell count, which may be a side effect for patients with kidney transplants.
During his second visit, Gómez suffered a panic attack. "She has had a few difficult weeks and the panic attack in the hospital was the turning point," a second source told PEOPLE.
"He realized that he needed to seek additional help for his ongoing emotional problems. She is surrounded by close relatives and has a lot of support. She is better now and is looking for treatment on the East Coast. "
