Selena Gomez reveals she almost died after kidney transplant

The 25-year-old singer told the Today show that she began hyperventilating and "freaking out" because of the pain she started experiencing after undergoing the transplant. Her pal Francia Raisa is revealing that the singer almost died from a complication after her kidney transplant.

She continued with a confident: "But Selena has had this complication disgusting".

She continued: "They had to take her into emergency surgery and get a vein from her leg and build a new artery to keep my kidney in place". Raisa previously shared Gomez's second surgery took six-hours.

Francia, 29, admitted to W magazine that they wanted to keep the procedure a secret because they didn't want to have to deal with the attention while in recovery.

Raisa revealed that Gomez suffered a post-transplant complication that could have led to her death. Her best friend Francia Raisa recalled how the singer was so scared for her life after the operation. She chucked it and she started crying. "She could have died".

Francia admits that the recovery from the transplant was hard, and said she was in a lot of pain when she went to audition for the role of Ana in Grown-ish two weeks after the op - a role she won. "We all have our moments, so I just let her do her thing, I didn't ask questions".

"I'm very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn't promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of", Gomez said.

"My kidney was very active, and when it turned I broke an artery", she explains.

Francia, who stars on the TV series Grown-ish, immediately volunteered to donate her kidney to Selena after she broke down while they lived together. Her grandparents are my grandparents now and so I have this extension of a family and its been really incredible'. I've never had anything personal come out about me before. I was like, 'What is wrong with you?' She said, 'I need a new kidney. I've dated very famous people, and no one knows because I'm very private.
