Selena Gomez Responds to People Commenting on Her Shaking Hands
Selena Gomez is responding to fans' concerns about her health.
The singer was scrutinized over the weekend after she posted a TikTok in which she shares her makeup and skin care routines. In the video, the 30-year-old has a slight tremor while applying micellar water to a sponge, leading to many comments about her physicality.
Gomez responded to the questions about her "shaking hands" by reminding the audience that she was diagnosed with lupus years ago, and the shakiness is the side effect of medication for her condition.
"Lol I shake because of my medication for lupus," she wrote in the comments of another TikTok that drew attention to the phenomenon. "Also read my disclaimer. I ain't no pro [laughing face emoji]."
Gomez has since deleted the critical TikTok, which came days after she responded to fans' comments over her weight gain and seemingly changed appearance.
The Only Murders in the Building star was diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune disease, in 2014, and has been very open about her condition, which can cause inflammation throughout the body, including in the organs. In 2017, Gomez had a kidney transplant due to lupus, and she discussed the effects of her physical and mental health on her life in her 2022 documentary, Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me.
"In the morning when I wake up, I immediately start crying because it just hurts, like, everything," she said.
In addition to lupus, Gomez talks openly about her bipolar disorder, and how receiving a diagnosis has helped her enormously.
"I'm going to be very open with everybody about this: I've been to four treatment centers," Gomez told Rolling Stone last year. "I think when I started hitting my early twenties is when it started to get really dark, when I started to feel like I was not in control of what I was feeling, whether that was really great or really bad."
With the right care, the musical artist discovered the treatment that helped her manage her condition, and decided to share her journey in hopes it would help other people going through similar issues.
