If you guys remember, Selly Gomez checked into a rehabilitation facility in January 2014. Rumors were circulating on what the cause was, but Gomez has addressed the topic once and for all, “First off, this is something that everyone always wants to fixate on. I got diagnosed with lupus. My mom had a very public miscarriage. So I had to cancel my tour. I needed time to just be okay, and I was going through leukemia.”I went to two different locations for those treatments. It’s really frustrating, because I am 100 percent allowed to have that, but I think people just want to have some sort of,” the songstress said.
Gomez had kept her condition under wraps for a while. The news first came, when Gomez met up with a child also suffering, “And there was this kid that wouldn’t look me in the eye at all…I wanted to get his attention, even though maybe it was too much. So I just said, ‘Ask me anything you want.’ And he was the first person that I told, besides my best friend and family, because he asked me, ‘Have you ever dealt with anything like this?’ And I said, ‘I have lupus. I was in the ICU for two and a half weeks. I was in this exact same room.’ And it was the first time that he looked at me,” Gomez reminisced.
The battle was rough, but Gomez has only high hopes, “I just have to be patient. It’s slowly dissolving the older I get. And I just have to be patient and make great things with quality, from producing to singing to acting. And one by one, I will be able to change the dialogue and people won’t care about everything that’s happened to me.”
How inspirational, Sel.
