Chatting to toofab, Selena said: "As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have Lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways.

"I've discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of Lupus, which can present their own challenges.

"I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off. You know how special you are to me, but...I am doing everything possible to be my best.

"I know I am not alone by sharing this. I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues."

Selena hasn't actually specified how long he's gonna take off work (or when), but she's set to bring the Revival tour to the UK in October.
