Selena Gomez reveals she had a kidney transplant over the summer
Selena Gomez is sharing a big secret.
The actress and singer has been super busy the last few weeks — taking in NYFW, filming with Woody Allen, and stepping out with boyfriend The Weeknd.

In a candid post shared on Instagram Thursday morning, the 25-year-old star we’ve watched grow up since Wizards of Waverly place shared that she needed the transplant to combat the auto-immune disease she suffers from, lupus. “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,” she wrote. “So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering.
