Selena Gomez has undergone a kidney transplant

The 25-year-old pop star suffers from Lupus and the side effects of the autoimmune disease damaged her organs so much that she was told by doctors that she required a transplant.
Selena found a willing donor in her “beautiful friend” Francia Raisa and after it was confirmed that she was a match, the operation and transplant took place in the summer and was a success.
The Hands To Myself hitmaker took to her Instagram account to reveal her ordeal with her 126 million followers, sharing a photo of her and Francia holding hands in their hospital beds
Earlier this year, the brunette beauty opened up on her need for a career break in 2016 to deal with the “anxiety, panic attacks and depression” that her Lupus had also caused.
The singer-and-actress is now back to work and has started shooting scenes for her role in Woody Allen’s next film.
