Selena Gomez just made a shocking revelation on social media!
In a lengthy Instagram post, the "Fetish" singer revealed why she was not actively promoting her new music the past few months. "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."
Take a look at her post below where she thanked her friend and kidney donor Francia Rasia:
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.

Back in 2016, Selena cancelled the rest of her Revival world tour to take some time off due to anxiety, panic attacks and depression, which according to her statement are side effects of lupus.
This year, she made a comeback in the music scene by releasing two singles – "Bad Liar" and "Fetish". Check out the music videos below:
