Former Disney child star, Selena Gomez decided to let go of her insecurities and flaunt her scar from a past kidney transplant operation.
The actress-singer posted a photo of herself on her Instagram account.
She has on a one-piece swimsuit showing a scar on the inside of her thigh.
In 2017, Gomez had a kidney transplant with the help of her close friend Francia Raisa.
The two lived in the same accommodation in the past.
Raisa volunteered to give her kidney to Gomez after discovering that the actress needed a transplant due to lupus.
“She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice,” Gomez said of her friend in 2017 after the operation.
Since then, the star has been open about spreading information about lupus.
However, after the operation, her scar became a source of insecurity for the actress.
In fact, according to Gomez, she would wear “things that would” cover her scar up.
“I didn’t want it to be in photos,” she wrote on her post.
However, things have changed.
According to Gomez, she now feels “confident” on who she is and what she went through.
“I’m proud of that,” she wrote.
Selena Gomez is Over Her Ex
Gomez shared in a recent Rolling Stone interview how her new album, Rare helped her to fully move on from her ex, Yummy singer, Justin Bieber.
The two are known for their infamous on and off relationship for eight years.
This relationship finally ended for good in 2018.
The same year, Bieber married the American model, Hailey Baldwin.
According to Gomez, she wanted people to know that her journey with her famous ex is now “completely closed.”
Last year, the star shared on The Zach Sang Show how she’s enjoying the single life.
She also revealed that it “sucked” at first.
However, after some time, things felt “awesome.”
