Selena Gomez Reveals The Scary Reason She was Laying Low This Summer

posted by CMS -

Selena Gomez revealed a huge life event she went through over the Summer this morning on Instagram. We know she has Lupus and deals with daily struggles but fans were concerned why she was laying low over the Summer and not promoting her new music that much. Well, it's because she had to get a kidney transplant in order to stay alive! She posted the below series of photos to her Instagram and explained the story. 

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.
