It has been a known fact that Selena Gomez has been dealing with Lupus for a few years now, and it looks like she is putting her health first.
Selena opened up to People Magazine that she has decided to take a break from music and the spotlight to focus on herself, after dealing with depression and anxiety attack which are effects of her Lupus disease.
“I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues,”she told the magazine.
Sources close to the singer promise that this break has nothing to do with drugs or alcohol, something that she was accused of back in 2013, when she was actually receiving chemotherapy for Lupus.
No word on whether or not she will still perform at the Global Citizen Festival or not, but she did say that she wants to take an entire year off.
Feel better Selena, good for you for putting your health over your career.
