Gomez was out of the spotlight for the most of the summer, and with good reason! The singer and actress revealed today in a post on her Instagram page that she had actually undergone a kidney transplant over the summer.

“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,” she wrote alongside a selection of pictures documenting her transplant ordeal.
