Lady Gaga has dubbed Selena Gomez a "warrior princess" after her recent kidney transplant.

The 25 year-old Gomez revealed on social media that she has had to undergo the serious operation as a result of her battle with autoimmune disease Lupus. Fellow musician Lady Gaga has sent her love and support to the star as she continues to recover.

Lady Gaga tweeted: "Prayers & love to @selenagomez you are a warrior princess. What an inspiration. (sic)"

She's not the only star to have wished the Fetish singer the best in her recovery either, as close pal Demi Lovato and ex-boyfriend Nick Jonas have also commented on the news.

Demi said: "I think that she is a very strong woman. I'm very happy and proud of her."

Nick added: "I didn't [know she had gotten the surgery]. I was just as surprised as everyone else when I woke up and saw her Instagram, but wow. That's just incredible, and the strength she's shown through all of that is inspiring."

"I'm pumped for her. I'm happy to see she's doing well, it seems, and she was able to get the surgery and her friend helping her is a beautiful thing. So it's all amazing."
