Demi Lovato Calls Selena Gomez A 'Very Strong Woman' Following Kidney Transplant Surgery

Demi Lovato just proved that she will never stop supporting longtime friend Selena Gomez.

Following a private performance for fans to celebrate her upcoming album, Tell Me You Love Me, on Sept. 15, 2017 in Los Angeles, Lovato opened up to People about her thoughts on Gomez. "I think that she is a very strong woman. I'm very happy and proud of her," said the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer.

Fellow Disney alum Nick Jonas also showed support for Gomez during a radio interview with Sirius XM's Hits 1. "I didn't [know she had gotten the surgery]. I was just as surprised as everyone else when I woke up and saw her Instagram, but wow. That's just incredible, and the strength she's shown through all of that is inspiring."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Gomez took to Instagram on Sept. 14, 2017 to reveal that she'd had a kidney transplant as a result of her lupus. "I'm very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn't promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of," Gomez captioned the Instagram post. "So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health."

The "Bad Liar" songstress also shared that she had friend Francia Raisa of The Secret Life of the American Teenager to thank for her new kidney. On Sept. 15, 2017, Raisa's mom shared that both her daughter and Gomez are "doing great."

While we wait and see if Gomez will offer up any more details about her surgery, read up on the truth behind the singer's hidden health crisis.
