We are super-supportive of Selena Gomez and really wish her well, which is why this news break our hearts! According to an interview with Billboard magazine, the singer struggled with some health issues because of the disease lupus. She revealed she underwent chemotherapy treatment to alleviate the symptoms of the disease.
"That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke," Gomez said to Billboard of her time spent away from her Stars Dance tour. She cancelled the Australian and Asian dates of that tour in December of 2013.
Selena added that she felt stressed that the media didn't understand her time spent out of the spotlight was due to serious issues.
“I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy...' I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again.”
We are happy to hear that Selena got through this and we wish her the best in her upcoming tour and album release.
