My only friend in the industry really is Taylor [Swift], so I remember feeling like I didn’t belong,” she admitted. “I felt the presence of everyone around me living full lives. I had this position, and I was really happy, but … was I? Do these materialistic things make me happy?

She won’t do it!” he continued. While Siovaughn claims to be a “good Christian mother,” she is an “absent parent” who has not attended a single “recital, graduation, school dance, play date, practice, parent teacher conference etc.” Concluded Dwyane, “The high road has long run out of real estate…My lawyer will be in contact.” Dwyane was married to Siovaughn from 2002 to 2010.

Selena Gomez, who’s long been outspoken about her mental health struggles, got even more candid with Rolling Stone as part of her cover story. The “Only Murders in the Building” star revealed that she’s entered four different treatment centers since her early 20s. “I think when I started hitting my early 20s is when it started to get really dark, when I started to feel like I was not in control of what I was feeling, whether that was really great or really bad.” She spoke of the lows she’d experience, explaining, “It would start with depression, then it would go into isolation…Then it just was me not being able to move from my bed. I didn’t want anyone to talk to me. My friends would bring me food because they love me, but none of us knew what it was. Sometimes it was weeks I’d be in bed, to where even walking downstairs would get me out of breath.” And while she’s never attempted to end her life, she admits to having contemplated suicide in the past. “I thought the world would be better if I wasn’t there,” she admitted. Selena, however, has since found strength in having bipolar disorder. “It’s one of the best hospitals for — they’re kind of covering everything in the mental health space. So, I was able to say my diagnosis out loud for the first time…And it gave me such strength, and — it wasn’t easy,” she told Kelly Clarkson in a separate interview of her visit to McLean Hospital in Los Angeles.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen’s prenup is revealed
