Los Angeles, August 31 : Selena Gomez said on Tuesday she will take a break to overcome with panic attacks and depression.
Gomez, 24, issued the statement in the midst of her Revival world tour, and about a year after revealing that she had been diagnosed with lupus.
Lupus is a medical condition that can damage any part of the body and affects some 1.5 million Americans, according to the Lupus Foundation of America.
She made the decision online after she broke up with her ex Justin Bieber, but she cited depression stemming from Lupus as the reason of her hiatus, reported People magazine.
“I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges,” she said.
