Selena Gomez Reaches Out to Suicidal Fan, Prevents Her from Taking Life
Selena Gomez would, without a doubt, do anything for her fans. She’s explained in the past, “I love my fans. They’re the most beautiful thing in the entire world for me. Every single thing I do is for them.” So when one Selenator posted a suicide note online, the “Fetish” singer was quick to come to her assistance.
The Blast reports that a woman who runs a SelGo fan account posted on Sunday night that she intended to take her own life the next morning. Fans started swarming the comments with encouraging messages and various resources, and even tagged the 25-year-old so that she could see what the girl was going through. Selly took notice and privately messaged the suicidal fan on Instagram, reminding her that suicide is not the answer and that she is loved.
“I don’t care if you love or hate me, suicide is never the answer,” the 13 Reasons Why executive producer wrote via direct message. “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 states that the police went to the girl’s home shortly after Selena’s message and took her to the hospital where she is receiving psychiatric treatment.
Sel and 13RW previously faced backlash for showing a graphic suicide scene on an episode of the Netflix hit. The former Disney Channel star responded, “It’s going to come no matter what. It’s not an easy subject to talk about. But I’m very fortunate with how it’s doing.”
If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
