Today in "what's Selena Gomez up to?" news, the newly single lady was photographed on a yacht off the coast of Australia, enjoying some time with friends. As one does whilst private-yachting, Selena was in a bikini, which revealed a scar from the emergency follow-up procedure she had after her 2017 kidney transplant.

Both Selena and her BFF/kidney donor Francia Raisa have been vocal about how scary the complications on Selena's end were. She remembers hyperventilating while waking up from the original surgery, only to find out her new kidney was turning around in her body.
