Last week we reported that Selena Gomez was cancelling the Australian and Asian part of her world tour because she needed some “me time”. This set off a flurry of speculation that had Gomez even entering rehab because of a breakdown. This weekend it was reported that Gomez is actually battling Lupus and will be taking the time off due to health reasons.
Popdust revealed that sources indicated that Gomez was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease two-years ago, but has recently been suffering from flare ups prompting her decision to take some time off.
“Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her Lupus is really catching up with her right now,” a source told the website. “She knows that she needs to take some time to address the disease and look after herself better if she wants to live a full and healthy life.”
Reps for Gomez denied comment on all of the reports. While the did not come out and say that Selena was suffering from Lupus they have indicated that “she wants to be the healthiest she can be”.
