Selena Gomez’s kidney donor reveals op fear

The actress who donated her kidney to Selena Gomez says the singer could have died following the transplant.

Francia Raisa gave her organ to the singer, who has lupus, last year.

She's told W magazine that Selena had a complication which led to her going in to emergency surgery, and that they both "went through a depression" during recovery. 

It’s not the first time the pair have spoken about the complications that came with the surgery, as the actress previously admitted she found the procedure harder to recover from than Selena did, as her body lost an organ rather than gaining one.

She said: “It's harder as the donor because we are losing something our body didn't need to lose, so trying to recover from that and she's gaining something her body needed.
