It has been reported that the reason pop singer, Selena Gomez, canceled the Australian and Asian leg of her “Stars Dance” tour is not because of some mental breakdown or check-in to rehab like other pop starlets have been known to do in the Hollywood world. It is allegedly because Gomez is battling a diagnosis of lupus.
According to Popdust, Selena was diagnosed with Lupus a couple of years ago and that she has suffered multiple “flares” recently, causing facial swelling, extreme fatigue, headaches and joint pain. “Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her Lupus is really catching up with her right now,” one source says, “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.”
Unfortunately, Gomez is not the first celebrity to battle a life-threatening disease. Check out the gallery below to see some other familiar faces who have struggled throughout the years.
