Selena Gomez has given fans a shock after she posed for a photo with what seemed to be a genuinely bandaged wrist. 

The photo was to promote her new song Bad Liar but fans focused on the Disney star's wrist instead. The A-lister is one of the brains behind Netflix's hit show 13 Reasons Why.

Fans inquired about the bandage but the photographer was quick to respond. Petra Collins wrote:

The 24-year-old has been struggling with her lupus diagnosis over the years. She sought mental health help after dealing with panic attacks which were brought on by her condition. 

The photographer who shared the photo has since turned off comments on her page.
