Pop Star Fans Rush to Defend Her Against Pregnancy Rumors
There is no doubt that Selena Gomez enjoys a loyal following of fans. This was recently demonstrated when fans of the famous pop music star and actress rushed to her defense to squash pregnancy rumors. The rumors began to circulate after an appearance at VAX LIVE: A Concert to Reunite the World at SoFi Stadium on May 2 in Inglewood, California.
Rumors Swirl After Appearance
After Gomez’s appearance, many people took to Twitter and social media to comment on her apparent weight gain. A photo of Gomez hugging pop icon Jennifer Lopez generated a significant amount of comments about her weight and rumors that she was pregnant.
However, it did not take long for fans of the superstar to defend her against the rumors. The award-winning entertainer clearly has a fanbase that will stand by her.
Gomez’ Health History
Gomez has not made her health struggles a secret. She has been open about her lupus diagnosis. In addition to having to deal with this autoimmune disease, Gomez has also struggled with kidney issues and high blood pressure. Because of these serious health issues, it is not unusual for her weight to fluctuate.
Dealing With the Hate
Gomez said that she noticed the uptick in negative comments about her weight right about the time that her health issues began to escalate.
However, Gomez has been able to take the attacks with stride. She once told Ryan Seacrest that she has embraced her physical appearance so that the body shamers do not get the best of her.
