Selena Gomez meets fans despite her break from music
Selena Gomez announced in August that she would be taking time off to deal with anxiety and depression caused by lupus, the condition she was diagnosed with last year. Yet, that hasn’t stopped Selena from meeting her fans.
The Kill ‘Em With Kindness hitmaker was spotted meeting fans while dining at Texas Roadhouse in Tennessee on Saturday 8 October.
Eyewitnesses confirmed to E! News that Selena was at the eatery for an afternoon meal and was seen graciously taking pictures with fans. A fan account on Twitter reposted the snaps on social media, making the sighting popular with trending caption #SelenaIsBackParty.
The starlet recently revealed the side effects of her disease in a statement, saying she wants to focus on her health.
“I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges,” Selena said. “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.
“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,” the singer continued. “I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”
We’re hoping Selena feels better soon!
