21 Celebrities With Autoimmune Diseases

They’re beautiful, talented, rich… and not exempt from being human. From multiple sclerosis to Graves’ disease, these nine famous faces live with autoimmune diseases and face challenges just like the rest of us.

Being celebrities, they have to maintain a certain public image and they have to do it all the time. The hardest part is the performing. We all see those glamorous concerts and songs, not knowing what’s going on behind the scenes and what hardships the artists had to endure.

1. Selena Gomez

After she canceled a large chunk of her tour, rumors of rehab and hard partying spread like wildfire through the media. However, the truth was far from that; Gomez took time out to gain control of her lupus.

With support from her good friends Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato, she continues to fight the enemy fiercely. Talking about friendships, she said: “If you have three people in your life that you can trust, you can consider yourself the luckiest person in the whole world.”

With age on her side, we are hoping for the best. This troubled, young princess-like singer has had many problems, and her lupus diagnosis is not helping. We all heard about her break up and make up with young infamous pop icon Justin Bieber, and we can only hope she’ll be better soon.
