The Queen of Instagram, Selena Gomez made people jump out of their skin by revealing why was she missing in action for the most of the summer. Her revelation came as a bolt from the blue to more than 126 millions of Selenators.
Selena Gomez has recently confessed to her fans that she had underwent a Kidney Transplant. Yes, the news is quite frightful but it is true. There were wild rumours all around about why Selena wasn’t promoting her new music. People speculated that she wanted to spend more time with her Love Interest and other stuffs like that.
However, the real reason behind why she was not in action was that she was recovering from a Kidney Transplant that resulted due to her battle against Lupus. The 25-year-old singer has probably gone through the worst this summer and it is something we all never imagined.
“Friend in need is the friend indeed”!
Coming to Selena Gomez’s rescue was none other than one her best friend, Francia Raisa, who came forward to donate her one kidney to her friend in the toughest phase of her life.
Selena Gomez has been quite vocal about her battle against Lupus from past few years but no one ever knew that it would result into a kidney transplant to continue the battle against it.
The “Bad Liar” hitmaker will probably be remembered for long for this honesty in front of her fans. Selena took to Instagram to confess all why she was laying low for the most of the summer.
“I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was lying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, Which I was really proud of” Selena wrote in her Insta post. “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 this past several months as I have always wanted to do with you” Selena added.
There was also a special thanks in the message to Francia Raisa who had donated her one Kidney for Selena’s well being. Here’s the picture in which Selena and Francia are lying on adjacent beds in a hospital, holding hands.
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.
