Selena Gomez Reveals That She Has Lupus

Selena Gomez Reveals She Is Suffering From Lupus

Selena Gomez confirmed that she is suffering from lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that affects organs and tissues inside the body. During an interview for Billboard's Oct. 17 issue, the singer revealed, "I was diagnosed with lupus, and I've been through chemotherapy. That's what my break was really about. I could've had a stroke." She recalled her recent hiatus, adding, "I wanted so badly to say, 'You guys have no idea. I'm in chemotherapy. You're assh*les.' I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again."

You may remember Selena taking time off from her demanding career and cancelling the Australian leg of her Stars Dance world tour back in January 2014, and while there was speculation that it was due to her breakup with Justin Bieber, we now know that wasn't the case. Furthermore, Selena is set to go on tour in May for her Revival album, which drops on Oct. 9.
