According to sources close to Selena Gomez, the former Disney star is battling Lupus. Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks healthy tissue in the body. There are a number of symptoms that an individual with Lupus could suffer from, including inflammation of skin, bone joints and organs as well as skin rashes.
Selena has yet to confirm that she does have Lupus, so this could just be a rumor. However the sources have revealed that Lupus is the reason Selena decided to cancel the Australian dates of her Stars Dance tour.
From what we’ve read Lupus can get worse for individuals who are under high amounts of stress, which Selena has been lately between touring, dealing with a breakup, and having to hear all of Justin Bieber’s new songs about her.
Selena reportedly doesn’t want the news about her disease to change the way her fans see her, so she is trying to keep her struggles as quiet as possible. Hopefully Selena knows her fans will support her through anything!
We’re glad Selena is taking time away from work to relax!
