Singer Selena Gomez Reportedly “Didn’t Want to Be Alive” During Her 2016 Tour, According to Her Former Assistant!
The documentary “Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me” lifts the veil on the singer’s “psychotic break,” which resulted in her being admitted to a hospital in 2018.
The new documentary that was released on Apple TV+ on Friday begins with footage that was captured during Gomez’s “Revival” tour in 2016. It is shown that she was heading toward a mental health crisis while she was rehearsing and while she was on the road, and this is ultimately what caused her to call off the tour after 55 performances.
“She exclaimed at one point, “I don’t want to be alive right now. I don’t even want to be alive,'” “during the course of an interview clip, with Theresa Marie Mingus, who had previously worked as Gomez’s assistant, stated. “And all I can say is, ‘Wait, what?'”
Mingus went on to say that it was one of those times when you look into someone’s eyes and see nothing. “It was completely dark there. And it’s very unsettling. You’re thinking, “Oh well, let’s not sweat this.” It’s time to put an end to this. It is high time that we left.”
Raquelle Stevens, a close friend of Gomez’s, has also spoken out about the confusion and pain that she went through during that time.
“It was necessary for us to have a very serious discussion with her on the subject of, “What is going on?” Her response was also something along the lines of, “I don’t know. I am at a loss for words. I wish you could experience what it’s like to be in my head because it would mean the world to me “Stevens had this to say about Gomez.

Stevens went on to say, “I just remember it being very chaotic and she was hearing all of these voices.” “They continued to get louder and louder until it was impossible to hear anything else. That set off some kind of psychotic break in the individual.”
Gomez had to have a kidney transplant in 2017 because she was suffering from lupus, and the procedure helped save her life. After one year, she continued to struggle with health issues, which contributed to her deteriorating mental state and made it even worse. She was eventually admitted to a mental health facility after being brought there.
“If anybody saw what I saw of her at the mental hospital, in the state that she was in, they wouldn’t have recognized her at all,” Stevens said of Gomez. “If anybody saw what I saw, in the state that she was in at the mental hospital.”
The superstar’s mother, Mandy Teefy, added that the media outlet TMZ was the source from which Gomez’s family learned about her “mental breakdown.”

Teefy shared his sentiments, saying, “I was scared that she was going to die.” “It’s a miracle that she managed to escape. However, there is always the fear that something like that will happen again, and it caused us a great deal of pain.”
Gomez took some time to reflect on her time spent in the facility, which is where she received the diagnosis that she suffers from bipolar disorder.
She shared her thoughts by stating, “I’m going, to be honest, I didn’t want to go to a mental health hospital.” “But I decided that I no longer desired to be hemmed in by myself or by my own thoughts. I was certain that my life had come to an end. I remember thinking, “This is the person I’m going to be for the rest of my life.””
Gomez is shown later in the documentary opening up to a local nursing student in Kenya in 2019 about having thoughts of self-harming behaviour. This takes place during Gomez’s volunteer trip to Kenya.
According to a recent interview that she gave to Rolling Stone, she stated that she “never actually attempted suicide but spent a few years contemplating it.” The editor Alex Morris paraphrased her comments.
Gomez shared her sentiments with Morris, saying, “I thought the world would be better if I wasn’t there.”
She went on to say later in the interview, “I add to that by reminding myself that I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the psychotic break, if it weren’t for my lupus, and if it weren’t for my diagnosis.” “My gut tells me that if I were to take on that role, I would most likely end up being yet another annoying entity whose sole goal is to always look good. When I think about who I could be, it makes me feel depressed.”
