Selena Gomez has been forced to make a very difficult decision about her REVIVAL Tour: the singer, who suffers from the autoimmune disease lupus, announced that she needs to put her tour on pause because of ongoing health issues.
"As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways," Selena said in a statement to People. "I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges."
"I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off," she added. "Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues."
We totally understand that health comes first, and we hope that taking a break will help her feel better. She hasn't confirmed if she's canceling the rest of her tour or postponing it for later, but we will keep you updated.
