When Selena Gomez canceled the Asian and Australian leg of her Stars Dance tour, there were rumors that she was suffering from lupus, an incurable autoimmune disease that causes facial swelling and extreme tiredness. The sad story was never confirmed, however... until now. According to Selena's grandfather, the "Come And Get It" singer does have lupus and is currently being treated.
“She’s in treatment. She’s getting along pretty good,” he told In Touch magazine.
Her grandfather also revealed that the stress of touring and dealing with her on-and-off relationship with Justin Bieber was causing her symptoms to get worse.
"She was working a lot. She was exhausted. She hardly takes some time out. There was some pressure, first because it's a lot of work… she was worried a lot about Justin," he said
"The doctor was telling her she needs to take some time out. It's just too much pressure what she's going through. It's just too much! She doesn't have a single day's break… It's getting to the point with all this pressure … that it’s too much."
We feel so bad for Selena! We hope she's been taking time for herself and focusing on getting healthier.
