It is being reported that Selena Gomez has a good reason for canceling the last leg of her current tour. Friends close to the singer are saying the tour was canceled due to ‘flares’ from lupus, according to Latino Fox News on Dec. 28.

It has been reported that Gomez has been battling lupus for several years. Gomez has recently suffered from several ‘flares’ from the autoimmune disease. Gomez has been experiencing facial swelling, extreme fatigue, headaches and joint pain. Sources close to the actress have said the disease is really catching up to her. Lupus affects people in different ways.

While reps have not confirmed or denied the lupus diagnosis of Gomez, it is obvious that the actress is definitely dealing with something by telling fans she is sorry but needs to take time for herself.

“My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them, but it has become clear to me and those close to me that after years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be.”

Selena Gomez was recently seen relaxing with friends on Friday night at a Britney Spears concert. Hopefully Gomez will start feeling better soon.
