Selena Gomez has undergone a course of chemotherapy after being diagnosed with lupus, a condition affecting the immune system.
The actress and singer was forced to cancel her tour of Australia and Asia in 2013, sparking fears over her health.
Gomez, 23, criticised reports in tabloids that suggested her absence could be because of drink or drugs when it was because of her lupus diagnosis.
‘That’s what my break was really about,” she told Billboard. “I could’ve had a stroke. I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re a**holes’.”
