Selena Gomez’s Best Friend Urgently Donates Kidney To Save Her Life
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.

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.
