Did you know that Michael B. Jordan and Selena Gomez were close friends? Because we sure didn't, and we're loving it!
Michael B. Jordan recently opened up about his friendship with Selena and her battle with Lupus. As we all know, about a month ago Selena made the announcement that she was cancelling all her shows and appearances for the rest of the year to focus on getting healthy again. Rumors have been going around that she's in rehab now - but it's not confirmed.
Michael feels so strongly about how Selena is handling herself to get in the best state, physically and mentally, though. He spoke to Entertainment Tonight at Lupus LA's Eighth Annual Get Lucky for Lupus celebrity poker tournament. He says, "Everybody comes to terms with it in their own time and she's finally taking the time to deal with it and address it. She's a really good friend and we've talked and had conversations. She's a really, really strong woman, so I can't imagine her not conquering it just like she has everything else."
Michael has a close connection with Selena, and also Lupus itself because his mother also suffers from it.
"When I was younger I didn’t understand it as much. As you get older, you really understand what’s what and the reality of the situation. Just coming to terms with the fact that she’s not healthy and there’s no cure for it is really hard. So you have to be extremely optimistic about finding a cure." he said.
Awwwww! This is so awesome, especially hearing from one of her friends that she's doing everything she can to get back to what she loves most. (Not that we expected anything else.)
