I'm very happy and proud of her, ' Demi, 25, told People on Friday evening after a private performance in Los Angeles for her Spotify fans to celebrate the launch of her album, Tell Me You Love Me.

Selena Gomez definitely surprised everyone when she revealed she had previously undergone kidney transplant surgery.

"He's been very caring and it's meant a lot to her to have him by her side", the insider added. "I'm very happy and proud of her", said the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer.

According to NME, almost half of all Lupus sufferers will have to get kidney transplants at some stage of their lives.

On Friday (15Sep17), Francia's mother, Virginia Almendarez, told Spanish-language television network Telemundo's show Al Rojo Vivo (Red Hot) that Selena and her daughter have both recovered well following their respective surgeries. "It was what I needed to do for my overall health". Now she knows how blessed she is by this friendship because it is a big thing to donate a kidney. Besides praising Selena, Kesha sent her support for Lady GaGa who recently revealed that she suffered from fibromyalgia. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.

France has enshrined in law that big sporting events must be free-to-air, so the French Grand Prix fits into that category. Other short odds to win are Lewis Hamilton (+162), Daniel Ricciardo (+700) and Max Verstappen (+700).

"There aren't words to describe how I can possibly thank my attractive friend Francia Raisa", Gomez wrote alongside a photo of the friends holding hands from their hospital beds as well as photos of her stomach following the surgery.

In a report by Metro, Selena confirmed that it was her best friend Francia Raisa who offered her one of her kidneys when she found out about Selena's condition.

On Sept. 15, pop star Selena Gomez took to Instagram to share a rather peculiar photo of herself in a hospital bed together with a friend.

'That's just incredible, and the strength she's shown through all of that is inspiring, ' the 25-year-old gushed. "Thankfully the kidney was compatible and that everything came out perfectly (sic)".

'I'm pumped for her.
