DID YOU KNOW? Selena Gomez Was Scared To Share Her Lupus And Bipolar Disorder Diagnosis In The Past-DETAILS INSIDE
Selena Gomez has been vocal about her health issues and revealed that she was initially scared to let people know about her diagnosis. However, the singer took time to let her fans know about her condition. 

For those unaware, Selena was diagnosed with Lupus in 2014 and she found out about her bipolar disorder in 2018. 

In an interaction with Fast Company, Selena opened up about her diagnosis of Lupus and bipolar disorder, which is assumed risky in the industry, and said, “I grew up being a people pleaser… I had a responsibility at a very young age—young people were looking up to me. I didn’t know who I was. Having that responsibility would make me walk on eggshells a lot. I thought maybe it would be damaging to tell people who I am. It started to become a threat that freaked me out. Well, if you’re not right, then you can’t work.”


“I went through a really hard season. It was my highs and my lows, and I didn’t know what to do, so I couldn’t control it. I would want to cancel things. It was just a tormented feeling. That’s why, when I found out my diagnosis, it was just, ‘Oh, okay, I feel a bit relieved, I understand a bit more.’ I got second opinions. I went to doctors. I’m fortunate enough to be able to have people who can help me survive every day,” she added. 

Furthermore, Selena briefly commented about her breakup with pop sensation and her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber while she said that it was the same time when she decided to take a break from social media. 


Selena Gomez was diagnosed with Lupus, an autoimmune disease, in 2014, and in 2017, she revealed that she underwent a kidney transplant for the same disease, which was donated by her best friend, Francia Raisa. 

Previously, she had also shared how she struggled with body image issues for years and her lupus worsened it further. In 2020, Selena revealed her bipolar diagnosis during an Instagram live chat session with Miley Cyrus.
