Selena Gomez: Drinking Heavily Following Kidney Transplant?

Earlier today, we reported on the news that Selena Gomez has checked into rehab following what’s been described as an emotional breakdown.

One insider state that Gomez is seeking treatment in a facility “on the east coast” in order to cope with her anxiety “over her repeated physical health issues.”

Those issues include lupus and other ailments, which culminated in Gomez undergoing a kidney transplant last year.

Now, Radar Online is reporting that the singer’s loved ones are attributing her latest struggles to her “refusal to live a sober life.”

The site reports that Selena’s mother, Mandy Teefey, has openly stated her desire to stage an intervention after revealing that she believes Gomez’s drinking is endangering her life.

“Doctors have all told her she needs to stop,” one source claims.

“Her family says she needs to stay sober, or she could die.”

Gomez has not opened up about the allegations of hard partying, and it’ll likely be quite some time before she speaks on her decision to seek further treatment.

She has, however, admitted that she continues to enjoy the occasional drink despite past health issues.

“As far as my personal life, someone sees me having a glass of wine? I could give two sh-ts,” the singer said in a recent interview with Elle.

“I’m not trying to hide. That’s my life.” 

Though Gomez has been described as “stubborn” with regard to her life choices, sources say she was deeply disturbed by friend Demi Lovato’s recent overdose.

One insider revealed that upon hearing the news, Gomez was not only concerned with her friend but filled with anxiety that she might suffer a similar fate.

“Selena is freaking out about this,” the source said at the time.

“She feels like it could have been her.”

Whatever the cause of her latest upheaval, we hope Selena is able to find the help that she needs.

Our thoughts go out to Gomez and her loved ones during this immensely difficult time.


Selena Gomez Nearly DIED from Kidney Transplant: New Details

According to recent reports, Justin Bieber wanted to get back together with Selena Gomez last year after he realized that he nearly lost his ex to a kidney transplant.

The dangerous procedure made Bieber realize just how much Selena truly meant to him.

But was Justin aware of just how close we all came to truly losing Selena?


In a new interview with W Magazine, Francia Raisa opens up about the unique donation she made to her best friend last summer.

The actress, who currently stars on Grown-ish, actually gave Gomez her kidney, following complications from Selena’s Lupus diagnosis that caused this organ of her to shut down.

Shortly after news of this procedure went public, Raisa said she didn’t even think twice about the life-saving gift, stating simply and admirably:

“I am beyond grateful that God would trust me with something that not only saved a life, but changed mine in the process.”

Pretty incredible, right?

Now, meanwhile, Raisa is sharing new details about the surgery, specifically about how Selena nearly died as a result of the very serious ordeal.

“Recovery was hard,” Raisa tells W. “I didn’t want to eat, I didn’t want to drink anything.”

From there, the actress revealed shocking and upsetting information about Gomez, something we had notpreviously heard in regard to her kidney transplant:

“Selena did have a complication, too. A few hours after our surgery, I woke up and had a text from her that said, ‘I’m really scared.’ My kidney was very active, and when it turned I broke an artery.

“They had to take her into emergency surgery and get a vein from her leg and build a new artery to keep my kidney in place.

“She could have died.”


What else is there to say, but… wow.

Selena has talked here and there about the exhaustion she sometimes experiences as a result of her Lupus.

It has caused her to cancel a few concerts and to take a few breaks from the spotlight on occasion.

But she didn’t make public just how serious the illness had become last year, remaining silent about the kidney transplant until after it was successful and both she and Raisa were on a path to recovery.

At that time, she posted the following picture (which has been Liked over 10 million times) and wrote the following lengthy caption…

I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of.

So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.

I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you.

Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery.

And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me.

I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

Gomez did briefly touch on this complication in her chat with Savannah Guthrie in October of 2017, telling the Today anchor at the time:

“It was a six-hour surgery that they had to do on me, and the normal kidney process is actually two hours. Apparently, one of the arteries had flipped.

“I’m very thankful that there are people that know what to do in that situation.”

Still, we had no idea Selena nearly died as a result.

We’re ever so grateful that she survived.


Selena Gomez: Fighting With Kidney Donor Friend Over Justin Bieber?!

Selena Gomez recently underwent a harrowing ordeal that seems to have left her with a new lease on life and a closer bond with a friend who’s now been promoted to soul mate status.

We’re talking, of course, about Selena’s decision to get back together with Justin Bieber.

Yes, strange as it seems, Bieber and Gomez are once again an item following her breakup with The Weeknd.

Did the timing of the decision have anything to do with Selena’s recent life-saving kidney transplant?

We may never know for certain, how it impacted her feelings toward the Biebs, but sources say Justin decided to devote himself to winning Selena back when he learned that she almost died.

Of course, as is so often the case with Justin’s love life, there’s a third party involved in this situation.

This time, however, it’s not an anxious groupie nervously answering Justin’s Patrick Bateman-like trivia questions about how many hits he’s recorded.

No, we’re referring to Francia Raisa, the woman who made a serious bid for the title of BFF of the Year by donating her kidney to Selena.

It seems that like millions of others, Francia is not thrilled with the idea of a Jelena reconciliation.

In fact, she’s downright against it.

The reason, according to Radar Online, is simple:

Francia feels that Justin will hurt Selena again, and she’s sick of consoling her friends for making the same mistake over and over.

“Selena’s friends bore the brunt of her sadness when Bieber broke her heart time after time over all these years,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.

“Everyone knows this reunion is very bad news,” the insider adds.

But while Selena’s inner circle is apparently unanimously opposed to the rekindled romance, no one has voiced their opposition more loudly than Francia:

“But its Francia who’s the most vocal — she’s saying she didn’t donate a body organ to save Selena’s life only for her to go and ruin it by running back to him,” says the source.

We’re not sure how the rules work on that.

If you donate an organ to someone, does that give you power over them for the rest of their life?

If so, we need to get on this biological gift bandwagon.

We don’t really need two kidneys, but we do need autonomy over the lives of our friends and family.
