Michael Buble has just revealed how devastating his son's cancer diagnosis was ... it has fundamentally altered his life to the point he may quit showbiz.

Michael told the Daily Mail his upcoming album, "Love", may be the last one he ever records.  According to the article, he says, "I'm retiring from the business. I've made the perfect record and now I can leave at the very top."

Michael also says he's done with social media forever, saying the 2016 cancer diagnosis of son Noah has put everything into rack focus and that he realized the absurdity of "celebrity narcissism."

The great news ... Noah, now 5, is in remission. 

Fair to say ... if Michael really does leave it will be a gigantic loss to music.

Selena Gomez 'Emotional Breakdown' in Hospital Now Receiving Mental Health Treatment

10/10/2018 5:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Selena Gomez was hospitalized twice in the last 2 weeks ... and the second time she suffered what sources called an emotional breakdown ... she's now at a mental health facility for treatment.

Multiple sources tell TMZ, the 26-year-old singer was at her Studio City, CA home the last week of September when the first emergency hit. We're told she was despondent and emotional over an alarmingly low white blood cell count in the wake of her kidney transplant. Our sources say a family member drove her to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. 

We're told Selena was released days later but had to be re-admitted late last week because her low blood cell count persisted, and it threw Selena into a downward emotional spiral.   

Soon after she was admitted she insisted on leaving, but doctors said she couldn't. We're told Selena had "a meltdown" and "freaked out." Selena tried ripping the IV's out of her arm. Several sources called the episode "an emotional breakdown."

We're told Selena is currently at an East Coast psychiatric facility and is receiving dialectical behavior therapy -- DBT. The therapy treats various mental health disorders. Selena has received DBT in the past. 

There have been multiple signs of trouble. There has been a virtual blackout of information regarding Selena for several weeks. 

Selena posted on September 23 she was taking a break from social media ... noting, "Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody's feelings. Obvi."

Before leaving social media, Selena did an Instagram Live answering questions from fans and said depression had consumed her life for 5 years. 

Selena's last public appearance was on September 22 at Jennifer Lopez's Vegas show. There was also a pic floating around of Selena in Newport Beach, CA with a couple fans that was allegedly taken Sept. 27 ... but we're told that pic was actually from March.  

Selena was a target of hateful comments on social media after her ex, Justin Bieber, got engaged to Hailey Baldwin.

Selena did a stint in rehab back in 2014. Last year she underwent a major surgery when she received the kidney transplant.

Justin Bieber Hold Me ... Emotional After Selena's Breakdown

10/11/2018 6:54 AM PDT

Justin Bieber needed a hug and some love on his way out of church, clearly impacted by our story about Selena Gomez's mental health crisis. 

The first signs Justin wasn't his normal self came when he showed up alone to his usual Wednesday night service ... this only hours after we broke the story of Selena's emotional breakdown.

Justin's been attending church with new wife Hailey Baldwin -- just as he did when he was dating Selena -- but Wednesday, the Biebs was flying solo and he needed to be comforted by friends as he was leaving. 

It's interesting ... Justin and Hailey typically do their own thing coming in and out of services, but last night he was surrounded by his church buddies. Justin, messy hair and all, clearly looks like he could use the support.

Problem is ... A LOT of Phora fans came, and the crowd of hundreds inside the store eventually spilled onto the street. Police were called in for crowd control, but things still got too crazy and a small stampede landed several people in the hospital.

Phora -- who signed with Warner Bros. Records last year -- is looking on the bright side. He says not only did he make people happy before the chaos erupted, but afterward he was able to get a fan to the hospital.

EXCLUSIVE

Tyron Woodley had an interesting day -- he took his son to the doctor to fix his injured labrum and ended up going under the knife himself ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Woodley took his son to Pensacola, Florida to visit Dr. James Andrews -- widely regarded as one of the best in the world -- and while he was there, wanted to get his hand evaluated. 

Woodley says he had torn some ligaments in his left thumb joint while smashing Darren Till at UFC 228 last month and the pain was so intense, he could barely shake anyone's hand. 

Long story short ... the Doc told Tyron he had an opening in his schedule and could repair the injury TODAY -- so, Tyron did it. 

Now, both Woodley men -- father and son -- are recovering in Florida and Tyron's mom is taking care of 'em. 

Tyron says he should be able to fight as early as December or November and plans to destroy Colby Covington as soon as he heals up. 

Oh, and his mom has a message for Colby too ... gotta love this family!!
