The real reason 21-year-old Selena Gomez cancelled her tour is because she has health issues related to Lupus. This reportedly comfirmed by multiple sources at Pop Dust.

Selena has supposedly dealt with Lupus for a couple of years and that she has suffered multiple “flares” recently, causing facial swelling, extreme fatigue, headaches and joint pain.

“Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her Lupus is really catching up with her right now,” one source says.

“She knows that she needs to take some time to address the disease and look after herself better if she wants to live a full and healthy life.”

Selena released this vague statement to her fans on December 20th:

“My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them. But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be. To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me.”

Lupus is an autoimmune disease, meaning the immune system attacks the body’s cells and tissues, causing inflammation and tissue damage. It commonly shows as a red rash on the face and causes joint pain, damage to organs and the nervous system, fatigue, fever, headaches and temporary loss of cognitive skills.
