Selena Gomez is Taking Time off Due to Depression & Anxiety

Around a year after revealing to the world that she’d been diagnosed with lupus, Selena Gomez has announced that she’s taking some time off to deal with side of the side effects of the illness.

In a statement to People, the 24-year-old pop star/actress said that she’s taking advantage of having a clear schedule now that her Revival World Tour has come to a close.

“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,” she explained. “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges.”

“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,” Gomez continued. “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.”
