Doctors told Selena Gomez that she “could have had a stroke right on stage” while battling lupus.
American singer and actress Selena Gomez, 30, has shared that doctors told her she could have had a “stroke right on stage” after she was diagnosed with lupus. The Mirror writes about it.
Speaking on the Apple TV+ series Darling, she spoke about the shock she experienced when she found out that she was incredibly sick.
Selena didn’t have any symptoms, she explained: “It was just that my body was fighting itself from the inside. That was the most surreal part because I never felt tired. I was young, I felt completely normal. So to hear from the doctor:” you could have had a stroke on stage, you could have died,” it was too much. But I didn’t let it sink in. I didn’t want to think about it.”
Selena also said she fought “nasty trolls” who criticized her when her weight fluctuated.
“My weight kept fluctuating because I was on certain medications. And obviously people just ran with it. It was like they couldn’t wait to find something that could bring me down. I was ashamed of being I gained weight because of my lupus,” explained the celebrity.
As the Golden Globe nominee, who has been very open about her lupus diagnosis and having a kidney transplant in 2017, explained, she tends to “retain a lot of water” while on medication.
