Mega-superstar Selena Gomez revealed on Thursday that she’s been recovering from a kidney transplant and shared pictures of herself with actress Francia Raisa who donated the organ.
Gomez, 25, first announced that she has lupus during an interview with Billboard in October 2015. At the time the actress and singer disclosed that she underwent chemotherapy. However, Gomez still needed to have a kidney transplant to help her battle the autoimmune disease.
The Disney star said in an Instagram post that she had undergone the operation and shared photos of herself alongside Raisa, who donated her kidney.
“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,” Gomez wrote in the post. “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.”
