Selena Gomez has opened up about her mental health during a conversation with Miley Cyrus, revealing that she was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Gomez appeared as a guest on Cyrus’ IGTV show Bright Minded, where the two former Disney stars had a candid conversation about health. She explained:
“Recently, I went to one of the best mental hospitals in America, McLean Hospital, and I discussed that after years of going through a lot of different things, I realized that I was bipolar. And so when I got to know more information, it actually helps me. It doesn’t scare me once I know it.”
The pair recently struck up a friendship again after Selena Gomez left a butterfly emoji in the comments of an Instagram post. Cyrus went on to say:
“I’m just really happy that we did this new DM. It was very sweet because you just sent a butterfly emoji. And that’s enough, connecting with people and letting them know that you’re there. A butterfly emoji is totally enough.”
Selena Gomez recently said that he felt like she experienced “emotional abuse” during her relationship with Justin Bieber, telling NPR:

“I’ve found the strength in it. It’s dangerous to stay in a victim mentality. And I’m not being disrespectful. I do feel I was a victim to certain abuse.”
