"He is happy because she is healthy".
Last year Francia paid tribute to Selena on her birthday, revealing she had been there for her through thick and thin. Kesha, Lady GaGa and Demi Lovato were among those who applauded the "Fetish" singer for her fearless battle against lupus.
She wrote: "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".
On Thursday, Gomez uncovered that she had experienced a kidney transplant because of her Lupus prior this late spring.
And the "Fetish" singer has also received support from her "close group" of friends. "It was what I needed to do for my overall health".
"Thank God they're both doing great", she shared.
"Selena's openness and strong emotional connection to her worldwide audience has brought extraordinary awareness to a disease that is typically overlooked", the organisation's president, Kenneth M. Farber, says in a statement.
Selena added that Francia gave her the "ultimate gift" and sacrifice by donating one of her key organs so Gomez can live and continue to work on her career. Selena needed a transplant due to lupus, an autoimmune disease and it was her best friend Francia Raisa who donated her kidney to her. I am incredibly blessed.
In an Instagram post, Selena wrote she can't even begin to describe how "thankful" she is for her handsome friend, Francia Raisa. I'm very happy and proud of her, ' Demi, 25, told People on Friday evening after a private performance in Los Angeles for her Spotify fans to celebrate the launch of her album, Tell Me You Love Me.
"I'm pumped for her", he continued.
