Selena Gomez has earned the support of her fellow celebrities including ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas and Lady Gaga following her recent health battle!
Nick was surprised as we were when he learned about her kidney transplant, but he's happy that Sel is finally "doing well". The "Jealous" singer expressed admiration for his fellow Disney alum's bravery in an interview with SiriusXM.
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.

"That's just incredible, and the strength she's shown through all of that is inspiring," he said. "I'm pumped for her. I'm happy to see she's doing well, it seems, and she was able to get the surgery and her friend helping her is a beautiful thing. So it's all amazing."
For her part, Lady Gaga sent "prayers & love" to Selena who she described on Twitter as a "warrior princess"!
Prayers & love to @selenagomez you are a warrior princess. What an inspiration. ??— xoxo, Gaga (@ladygaga) September 15, 2017
Last year, Mother Monster called Selena as the "girl with a big heart" when the latter made a triumphant return at the AMAs following another health issue.
Meanwhile, Kesha is praying for both Selena and Gaga who's having health issues of her own!
I was taken to the hospital its not simply hip pain or wear & tear from tour, I'm in severe pain. I'm in good hands w/ the very best doctors— xoxo, Gaga (@ladygaga) September 14, 2017
