The Weeknd Was by Selena Gomez’s Side During Kidney Failure
On Thursday, Selena Gomez revealed she underwent a kidney transplant due to her Lupus condition. TMZ had more details about Gomez's health scare, revealing it all began in May during a Weeknd concert.
According to the report, while in Chicago in May for boyfriend The Weeknd's performance, Gomez had to be rushed to the hospital because of kidney failure. The "Reminder" singer never left Gomez's side who was already on a kidney transplant list.
Luckily for Gomez, she didn't have to look far for a kidney. The singer's friend, Francia Raisa, gave her one of hers.
"There aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa," Gomez wrote on Instagram. "She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis."
Earlier this year, it was reported that Gomez gifted The Weeknd with a $30,000 birthday. The "Fetish" singer reportedly paid the bill for The Weeknd's Dave and Busters party.
