selenaSelena Gomez has opened up about her health.

The singer, whose brief stint in rehab in early 2014 spawned rumors of substance abuse and relationship troubles, told Billboard that the real reason she took a break was because she was diagnosed with Lupus. She told the magazine:

“I was diagnosed with Lupus, and I’ve been through chemotherapy. That’s what my break was really about. I could’ve had a stroke. I wanted so badly to say, ‘You guys have no idea. I’m in chemotherapy. You’re assholes.’ I locked myself away until I was confident and comfortable again.”

She says she hates being the victim of the tabloids, especially when she makes it a point to be nice to everyone, but that her fans keep her going.
