Aww! Taylor Swift is in FULL support of Selena Gomez postponing her high-selling ‘Revival Tour,’ due to her ongoing battle with lupus! We’ve got the EXCLUSIVE details on why Tay is ‘proud’ of her best friend for making the tough decision to take a break.
Taylor Swift, 26, proved that she’s always going to stand by her best friend, Selena Gomez, 24, through the good times or bad. “She couldn’t be more supportive of Selena’s decision to postpone her tour. She is so proud of her for making her health her number one priority,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. So sweet! Sel made the shocking announcement to her fans on Aug. 30, letting them know that she had been privately suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and depression, brought on by her lupus diagnosis. Poor thing!
Selena noted how she wanted to be “proactive and focus on maintaining” her “health and happiness.” We definitely think she’s making the right choice! Since her big reveal, concerts in Europe and Canada have already been cancelled. Although the songstress was expecting major backlash for disappointing those who purchased tickets, the Selenators showered her with love! Of course, she was very appreciative, “Thank you to all my fans for your support,” she told PEOPLE exclusively. “You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best.” So true!
Considering that Sel has to focus on becoming a bit more zen at this point of her life, it’s great to see her taking some time away from the limelight — and with the support of her close friend Taylor. The A-list buddies are certainly two peas in a pod, considering the “Kill ‘Em With Kindness” star also had Tay’s back during the whole debauchery with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. As you may recall, Selena took to Twitter to defend Taylor in July, after the infamous call of her approving Yeezy’s racy lyrics in “Famous” was leaked. Nonetheless, the girls are leading their lives into greener pastures and we couldn’t be more happy for them! Get better soon, Sel.
