“When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar. I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through…and I’m proud of that,” Selena captioned the photograph.
In the post, she shouted out the company which designed the bathing suit, fo their commitment in showcasing ‘all bodies are beautiful’ — “Congratulations on what you’re doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that…all bodies are beautiful.”
Thousands of fans and a few celebrity friends of the singer flooded her Instagram to show support to Selena, and comment on how stunning she is in the photo.
‘Jersey Shore’ star, JWoww, posted saying, “??? You are so incredible ?.”
“Scar looks like Just another beautiful tattoo ❤️” a fan added. In the picture, you can see Selena’s thigh tattoo which features a pair of praying hands.
“Selena, you are so strong and powerful women…love you forever and ever ?????,” another comment read.
We broke the story, several years ago Selena received a kidney transplant from her one of her best friends — Francia Raisa — after suffering from complications of Lupus.
Selena Gomez recently opened up about moving past her struggles and highlighted most of it in her album, ‘Rare.’
The singer sat down with Rolling Stone and described how different her life is now compared to when she recorded the album which was released in January.
“I wanted people to take away that this was a journey and that it was completely closed,” she said. Adding, “I don’t want people to see me as just sad and hurt. I didn’t want that anymore.”
She continued, “I wanted people to know that I experienced something real, and that part of me is over.”
