Selena Gomez Has a Brand New Kidney

Selena Gomez didn’t spend the summer promoting her music because she was too busy hanging out with The Weeknd. She didn’t spend the summer promoting her music because she was too busy receiving a kidney.

In a heartfelt Instagram post, Gomez informed fans that she received a kidney transplant from her best friend, The Secret Life of the American Teenager star Francia Raisa.

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.

Gomez was diagnosed with lupus in late 2015. She took a break from the spotlight in 2016 after suffering from depression and anxiety relating to lupus. We all know it was actually related to Bieber Backlash, but we’ll let Gomez have this one. It’s been a long summer for her. After all, Bieber’s dick re-appeared on her Instagram.

Back in May, Gomez was rushed to a Chicago hospital due to kidney failure.

The singer/actress/hater of creeps appears to be in good spirits following her transplant. She’s currently working on an untitled Woody Allen film and she’s spending plenty of time with The Weeknd.

And don’t worry that you didn’t promote your music, Selena. No one really noticed.
