14th Sep 17 | Entertainment News

Selena Gomez has revealed she underwent a kidney transplant, and the donor was her best friend.

The surgery, which happened over the summer, was due to her battle with Lupus disease.

Selena shared a snap post surgery of her and kidney donor Francia Raisa, saying:

"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."
