Selena Gomez told Billboard that she had to step away from the spotlight for several months as she underwent chemotherapy to treat an autoimmune disease.
Gomez was diagnosed with lupus earlier this year and said that while in treatment, there was speculation that she was battling an addiction.
The 23 year old said “I wanted to so badly to say, you guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re a——s”
“I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again,” the “Good for You” singer said.
Gomez was also body shamed for having a fuller figure. Five months ago, she appeared in a skimpy bathing suit and the comments were anything but kind.
