Selena Gomez’s grandmother is worried about the singer’s health, Female First reports. The “Come and Get It” singer was allegedly diagnosed with lupus, and her granny Mary Gomez fears the 21-year-old isn’t taking proper care of herself.
Gomez sought treatment for depression earlier in the year, presumably to cope with her breakup from Justin Bieber, and was later diagnosed with lupus, a chronic condition that causes the body’s immune system to attack its own organs and tissues.

Selena Gomez hasn’t commented on the report. A source told Female First it’s because she isn’t ready to deal with it.
"She was so distraught and really freaked out when doctors told her there was no cure and she would have to live with it for the rest of her life,” the insider said. “She's been on meds ever since."

An insider reportedly once told In Touch magazine: "He's always had a spell over her and is such a bad influence and bad for her health."
