According to a December 27, 2013 Pop Dust report, the "Come and Get It" singer was diagnosed with Lupus a few years ago, and the symptoms have become increasingly debilitating.
As a source told Pop Dust, "Selena has been going full throttle the past few years and her Lupus is really catching up with her right now. 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."
Rumors of these possible health problems have not been confirmed. When asked if Gomez had been suffering from Lupus, a rep for the pop star told Huffington Post, "no comment."
Other speculations have been floating around about her decision to cancel the 13 shows that she had been scheduled to perform in Australia and Asia.
One rumor suggested that Gomez had been partying too hard with her "Spring Breakers" co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson, and that she was headed to rehab. However, Gossip Cop has denied the reports as "100 percent made up."
Meanwhile, other rumors suggested that the "Slow Down" singer cut had back on her touring commitments in order to heal from her breakup with Justin Bieber. As Hollywood Life reported, "She wants to heal from the Justin relationship since she just dealt with it with work and never gave herself sometime for herself."
Despite all the speculations surrounding Gomez' tour cancellation, the most likely explanation is that she was just overworked and tired. As E! News reported, "Selena is OK. She just realized it was time to take a break for herself. She's been working non-stop for six years. She hit a wall."
Is Selena Gomez suffering from health problems? Is she still getting over her ex-boyfriend? Do you believe any of the rumors surrounding her decision to cancel her shows? Or did she really just need some "me" time?
