The singer has been laying low for months, not appearing at awards ceremonies or promoting her new music.

And in a beautiful picture of herself in a hospital bed next to her best friend, the former Disney actress explained that she had to undergo a kidney transplant – and bravely showed off a picture of her scars to her millions of followers. 

In a statement on her Instagram, Selena wrote to her 126m followers: “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.”

The NHS define Lupus as a complex and poorly understood condition that affects many parts of the body. The symptoms can range from mild to life-threatening.

It is an autoimmune condition, which means it's caused by problems with the immune system.

For reasons not yet understood, the immune system in people with SLE starts to attack and inflame healthy cells, tissue and organs.
