Selena Gomez Receives Kidney Transplant


Selena Gomez has surprised fans with an unexpected admission: she underwent a kidney transplant over the summer.

“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,” Gomez, 25, posted on Instagram. “So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering.”

Gomez went on to thank a longtime friend and fellow actress for donating the organ she so desperately needed.

“There aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa,” Gomez wrote alongside a photo of the pair holding hands from their hospital beds.
