Hot pop singer Selena Gomez canceled the Asian and Australian portions of her most recent tour. Fans were concerned when the singer said she had to take some time for herself and she did look tired. Immediately, rumors were that the 21-year-old was headed to rehab but, in fact, she may be suffering from the autoimmune disease lupus, according to The Huffington Post on Dec. 27.

According to the Pop Dust web site, the singer was diagnosed with lupus a few years ago. She’s apparently been experiencing increasing flares causing headaches, facial swelling and extreme tiredness.

Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her lupus is really catching up with her right now,” a source tells Pop Dust. “She knows that she needs to take some time to address the disease and look after herself better if she wants to live a full and healthy life.”

The paparazzi following Selena on her way home from the tour got photos of a very tired looking girl with no makeup. She looked totally exhausted.

According to the Web MD web site lupus is defined as:

Lupus is an autoimmune disease, which means that the immune system mistakes the body's own tissues as foreign invaders and attacks them. Some people with lupus suffer only minor inconvenience. Others suffer significant lifelong disability.

Lupus affects people of African, Asian, or Native American descent three times as often as it affects whites. Nine out of 10 people with lupus are women. The disease usually strikes between age 15 and 45, although it can occur in older individuals.”

A rep for Selena Gomez would not comment when asked if the singer is suffering from lupus, but the issued this statement.

She is not having a breakdown. She wants to be the healthiest that she can be and this means taking a little break. But she is fine. She is OK."
