Selena Gomez has just revealed that the reason she was out of the public eye this summer was because she had a critically needed kidney transplant due to her Lupus disease.

Today, the pint-sized star exposed the secret in a touching Instagram post, also revealing that the donor had been her friend Francia Raisa.

‘She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice,’ Selena wrote. ‘I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much.’Alongside the message, she shared a picture of herself and Ms. Raisa laying side-by-side in the hospital while clutching hands.
