Selena Gomez announced that she's taking a break from her tour. In a statement to People, she said that lupus, the illness she suffers from, was starting to take a toll on her well being.
"As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways. I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges," she said.
"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. 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," she also said.
Selena has tour dates scheduled for the rest of the year, and it is unclear whether or not those shows will be cancelled, or if fans will be refunded.
We hope she takes time off and gets the time that she needs to heal!
