Selena Gomez spoke about kidney transplants on Apple TV+’s “Dear.”
Selena Gomez appeared in a new episode of Apple TV+ Darling… that fell today (March 10). Meanwhile, she opened up about her lupus battle — one that led to her friend Francia Raisa donating her kidney to Gomez in 2017. She expresses her sincere gratitude for the help that could have saved her life.
“Within three days she went and she was a match. And it was one of those moments when I felt like I was being watched. I know I’ve been so lucky,” Gomez said in the episode. “I understand that that doesn’t happen to a lot of people, and I know the outcome of some of these situations and how serious they are, so I don’t take it lightly that this has happened to me.”
“I will never, ever, ever owe anyone more than Francia,” she added. “The idea of someone not even hesitating to be a donor was incredibly overwhelming.”
Gomez also addressed the two getting tattoos to match their transplant date Rolling Stone.
“I think it had to happen the way it happened for me to get where I am,” she said. “I should go through it to do something for others.”
However, things may have changed between the two friends as it is unclear when the episode was filmed. Last November, after Gomez’s comments about Taylor Swift being her only friend in the music industry circulated, Raisa shared her thoughts. “Interesting,” she replied to the message.
“Sorry I didn’t mention everyone I know,” Gomez replied.
