A few hours ago, Gomez shared with her 126 million Instagram followers the very real reason why she wasn’t sharing a lot of her life with her fans over the summer. 

Gomez had undergone surgery to have her kidney replaced due to complications caused by Lupus. Thanks to her very close friend Francia Raisa, who donated her kidney to Gomez, Gomez has recovered and back in good health. 

Her post reads:

“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. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
