Selena Gomez is Back after Bed Rest


After suffering from a secret bout of illness, actress/singer Selena Gomez had been placed on bed rest by the doctors. The revelation was made by the Come and Get It hitmaker on Saturday, August 19th, when she was hosting the screening of Robert Pattinson’s new drama in Hollywood, called Good Time. She disclosed that she had befriended producer Sebastian Bear-McClard and co-director Josh Safdie after she watched their drama Heaven Knows What when she was sick. The drama had been released in 2014 and is based on a suicide attempt of a homeless heroin addict who is hospitalized.

She told the crowd that she had been on bed rest a little while ago and it could be the worst or even the best time to watch Heaven Knows What, depending on a person’s mental state. She said that she had gotten fascinated with the producer and co-director and had kind of forced them to be her friend. Thanks to the new friendship, she had been granted access to the new movie of the filmmakers, Good Time. Pattinson is playing the role of Constantine ‘Connie’ Nikas and the role of his mentally-handicapped and imprisoned brother Nick is being played by Ben Safdie, who is Josh’s brother and co-director.

Nick is undergoing a psychiatric examination in the opening sequences and Selena was able to relate to this experience because she had gone through the same after her issues with mental health. The singer added that she had done some similar exercises due to her mental health and they just struck a chord in her. She stopped short of explaining what had caused her to be prescribed bed rest. But, in 2015, she had been diagnosed with the auto-immune disease lupus and she had cancelled a tour last year to focus on her mental health and had checked herself into a rehab facility in October.

At that time, the singer had disclosed that the side effects of lupus had been taking a toll on her and had given rise to panic attacks, anxiety and depression. Now, it appears that the popstar is once again back in good health as she was enjoying a date with her boyfriend The Weeknd on Sunday, August 20th at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Another couple joined the musicians and the popular theme park gave them VIP treatment. She had begun dating the R&B star back in January of this year.
