Pop sensation Selena Gomez has announced to her fans she is taking a well-earned break as she is suffering from anxiety and depression.
After recently revealing she had been diagnosed with lupus, the Hands to Myself singer has decided to hang up the microphone for a while after completing her gruelling world tour.
‘As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways,’ Selena said in a statement. ‘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.’
