Selena Gomez had an urgent kidney transplant after her best friend donated one of her own to save the global superstar.

Selena had been laying low for a few weeks over the summer, which led to some fans speculating the reason for her absence.

It turns out Selena urgently needed a kidney.


In an Instagram post, Selena revealed the truth around her absence:

In her post Gomez wrote:

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.

The star continued:

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.
