Selena Gomez Reveals Undergoing A Kidney Transplant, Thanks To A Close Friend’s Donation

Wow Selena! This shocking Instagram post took everyone by surprise!

According to ET

Selena Gomez took to Instagram early Thursday to give her fans a health update and share some shocking news.

The 25-year-old actress and musician revealed that she recently underwent a kidney transplant due to her Lupus, explaining why she’s stepped back slightly from her career in recent months.

Gomez also revealed that her longtime pal, actress Francia Raisa, is the one 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,” she wrote. “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.”

“There aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa,” she captioned the pic of her and Raisa, 29, side-by-side holding hands in hospital beds. “She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis.”
