Selena Gomez has disclosed she underwent a kidney transplant earlier this summer.

While the 25-year-old kept a low profile after receiving the kidney from her good friend and The Secret Life of the American Teenager star Francia Raisa, on Thursday Selena shared her medical news on Instagram.

“I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of,” she wrote to her 126 million followers. “So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.”

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

The “Hands to Myself” singer promised she would elaborate more on what she went through these last fews months in the near future.

“Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery,” she continued. “And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.”

Selena has been very candid about her health through the years having revealed in 2015 she suffered from the autoimmune disease Lupus.

In 2016, she took a break from her tour after suffering from anxiety and depression due to the disease.

While the transplant took place in June, Selena appears to have made a full recovery as she’s been busy filming the new Woody Allen film, debuting her new fashion collaboration at New York Fashion Week and contributing to Tuesday’s Hand-in-Hand hurricane relief telethon.

And while she healed from her surgery, Selena pushed forward musically by releasing the singles “Bad Liar” and “Fetish.”
