Singer and actress Selena Gomez has revealed that she is recovering from a kidney transplant, the reason why she has been out of the public eye recently.
In an Instagram post on Thursday, the singer, who has opened up about living with Lupus before, said she looks forward to sharing more of her journey with fans and shared the Lupus Research Alliance’s website for people who want to know more about the disease.
She also thanked her friend, Francia Raisa, for donating a kidney to her.
She wrote: “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”.
