Selena Gomez recently received a Kidney Transplant due to complications from her Lupus.
Fans were wondering why they had not heard anything from Gomez much at all this summer. Gomez confirmed in an Instagram post that the transplant was “what I needed to do for my overall health.”
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.

She went onto thank Francia Raisa (a friend who donated the kidney) and the team of doctors who helped with the surgery. And says she wants to share with all her fans what has happened over the last several months. Her fans rallied to Gomez to support her through this difficult time.

We’re all hoping Selena Gomez makes a full recovery soon and she keeps cranking out those hit songs.
