Ever since Selena Gomez canceled the Australian and Asian legs of her tour, rumors have been swirling around as everyone tries to figure out why the singer really backed out. Her reps had said she just needed some time off, since the singer and actress has been going nonstop for the past two years and need to relax, so she would be rested and could give the fans her very best later on. But, other reports have since come out, claiming it was because of her breakup with pop star Justin Bieber, and just yesterday another headline was saying it was because she was heading to rehab for partying, because she was starting to have a “breakdown,” according to Huffington Post. Today, it looks like sources are saying her time off is due to the fact that the 21-year-old has Lupus, which is a rare autoimmune disorder. Sources told the website, Popdust, that she was diagnosed with the disease a couple of years ago, and was starting to deal with several “flares” that were causing facial swelling, extreme fatigue, headaches and joint pain. The source is saying, “Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her Lupus is really catching up with her right now. 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 happy life.” When rumors about Gomez going to rehab, her reps were quick to deny the story, but gave “no comment” to the Huffington Post when asked about the new rumor. Hopefully it isn’t true, and Selena really is just taking a short break to take care of herself to bounce back, better than ever. Either way, we fully support her decision and wish her nothing but the best!
