The singer received a kidney transplant from pal and “Grown-ish” star Francia Raisa in 2017 after experiencing complications from her lupus diagnosis.

In September, Gomez made a statement when she shared a photo showcasing the operation scar while in a bathing suit.

“When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar,” Gomez wrote alongside a swimsuit photo of herself that visibly displays her scar.

Gomez praised Raisa during an acceptance speech for the Billboard Woman of the Year Award in November 2017.
