Selena Gomez: Lupus Diagnosis to Blame for Tour Cancelation?

by at . Comments

When Selena Gomez canceled the Australian leg of her recent tour this month, the singer said she just needed to spend some time with herself.

But speculation then ran wild over the true cause of Selena's hiatus, with some reports stating she's dating Lil Romeo and wanted to hang with that rapper for awhile.

Now, however, sources reveal a different basis for the break to Popdust: Gomez is dealing with complications related to Lupus.

“Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her Lupus is really catching up with her right now,” an insider tells the site, explaining that Gomez was diagnosed a couple years ago with the autoimmune disease.

The illness can cause inflammation and tissue damage when one's immense system attacks one's cells.

According to this assertion, Gomez has suffered a few significant "flares" recently, leading to facial swelling, joint pain and serious fatigue.

Fortunately, Lupus is treatable, though incurable. Still, over 80 percent of those diagnosed with the illness live a regular lifespan.

No word from Selena's camp regarding this report, but if it's accurate, let's all hope a few weeks of rest and relaxtion help the young star feel better.

Of course there has to be a made-up story about someone having a disease without talking to a doctor for proof. Its just like that made-up story about her dating some guy and other shit.

How can she have lupus? Didn't she die in an airplane crash about ten years ago?

There have been a score of sources issuing contradictory reports why she canceled her tour. Hope the lupus thing is not true but one has to wonder in view of the fact she looks fine, has been partying at a club and at Britney's concert bringing up questions on the real reason.

I have had Lupus for 22 years. You cannot look at someone and know it unless it is flaring up.
