Selena Gomez calls time out

Pop singer Selena Gomez says she is taking time out to deal with panic attacks and depression thought to be a side effect of her lupus disease.

The 24-year-old issued a statement saying:

“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…”

Gomez is in the midst of her Revival world tour and it’s not immediately clear when she would start her break or what would happen with the rest of the shows.

A source close to Gomez told People magazine the career break was not related to alcohol or substance abuse.

The decision comes about two weeks after getting into a social media feud with ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber, after the Canadian pop star posted images to his Instagram page of himself and his latest girlfriend.

Gomez found fame as a teenager on the Disney Channel from 2007 to 12.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body and affects some 1.5 million Americans, according to the Lupus Foundation of America.
