Selena Gomez, has addressed the issue many fans have wondered during the last few months, despite releasing new music the singer however has not particularly been promoting her hot hits.
Having fans pondered if the star is struggling with her health once again, Gomez confirmed back in 2015 that she suffers from lupus whilst she was being treated with chemotherapy.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease which attacks the body’s immune system which makes it hyperactive and causes it to attack normal healthy tissue and organs.
The Fetish singer took to Instagram to inform her followers that she recently underwent a kidney transplant:
“I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
