Singer, 25, has a scar high up on her inner right thigh from a ruptured artery she had following the kidney transplant that saved her life in September 2017
She was rushed back into surgery to have a vein removed from her right inner thigh to build a new artery and keep the kidney transplant in place
She’s just touched down in Sydney ahead of the Hillsong Church’s Colour Conference – a festival her former beau Justin Bieber attends annually.
But newly-single Selena Gomez was surrounded pals on Monday, as she showed her affections for one female friend in particular on the top deck of a luxury boat in Sydney’s Harbour, playfully mounting her and giggling as they shared an cuddle.
The 25-year-old Texan native showed off her figure in a two-piece bikini, revealing a prominent scar on her inner her right thigh, obtained during a second emergency procedure that followed her 2017 kidney transplant.
Pairing a bright orange bikini top with plain black bottoms, the singing sensation was accompanied by friends on the cruise.
Her former flame Justin Bieber was nowhere to be seen as she laughed and joked with gal pals on the day out.
At one time, Selena was seen crawling over to her friend, and then lying on top of her with arms open, ready for an embrace.
The mischievous brunette then let out a gleeful smile as her friend, who was resting on her back in a black bikini, returned the enthusiastic squeeze.
Though she was clearly besotted with her mate, it was not the same altruistic friend who became Selena’s organ donor in summer 2017.
Actress Francia Raisa gave Selena one of her kidneys in summer 2017, following the singer’s battle with lupus.
Selena, who underwent a kidney transplant in September last year, first showcased her sizable surgery scar while holidaying in Mexico in December.
However Selena was now displaying the mark that the surgery left behind last September.
