Selena Gomez has revealed that she underwent chemotherapy treatments after she received a Lupus diagnosis from her doctor. In a new interview with Billboard, she talked about spending much needed time away from the spotlight in order to deal with the health scare.
She said, “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 also talked about those who made false assumptions about her break. She added, “I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re a**holes.’ I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again.”
It’s a shame that when she finally did come out of hiding, people were there to “fat shame” her into oblivion. I’m just glad that she doesn’t care what people think – her body looks great and she’s on the path to being healthy.
