Pop singer Selena Gomez announced that she would be taking a break from her Revival world tour to deal with her panic attacks and depression, thought to be a side effect of her lupus.
Selena had just finished the Australian leg of her tour, and was in the Philippines for the Asian leg last July 31.
The pop star said:
“I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body. Selena admitted to having the disease over a year ago.
“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 … I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best.”
Selena has dates in North America and Europe left, but it is unclear as to when her break would start.
Hopefully she the break does her well.
