Selena Gomez Reveals She Had a Kidney Transplant This Summer

Selena Gomez took to Instagram Thursday morning to reveal a big secret. The pop singer laid low this summer to recover from a kidney transplant.

“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,” the singer captions of photo of her lying in a hospital bed holding hands with the friend who selflessly donated her kidney.

“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.”

In her lengthy caption, Gomez includes the link to learn more about Lupus through the Lupus Research Alliance. Since her post, she’s received an outpouring of love and support from fans.
