Michael B. Jordan Knows Pal Selena Gomez Will 'Conquer' Her Battle With Lupus

Michael B. Jordan gets some shopping done with a friend on Saturday (September 30) in Hollywood.

The 29-year-old Creed actor spent some time texting on his phone while they walked.

Michael recently shared his feelings about his close friend Selena Gomez‘s fight with lupus – Selena is currently taking some time off due to anxiety, depression, and panic attacks stemming from the chronic autoimmune condition.

“She’s a really good friend and we’ve talked and had conversations,” Michael told Entertainment Tonight. “She’s a really, really strong woman, so I can’t imagine her not conquering it just like she has everything else.”

“Everybody comes to terms with it in their own time and she’s finally taking the time to deal with it and address it,” he went on. “My advice would be, ‘Stay optimistic, don’t succumb to how you feel in the moment – because it will pass and get better – and surround yourself with positive people.”

Michael‘s mom, Donna, also battles with lupus, and he has helped raise both money and awareness as an ambassador for Lupus LA.

“Just day-to-day routine and the most normal things are really hard to do when you’re not feeling well and your lupus is flaring up,” he added. “Every day can be a struggle.”

    ‘EYE CANDY”

  • Koos

    so she suffers Herpes now?

  • Gina

    Eww, didn’t know he was friends with her; he’s also friends with Kendall Jenner. I like Michael, but he’s lost a couple points.

  • Anna

    I heard he slept with Kendall a bunch of times. I like Michael too but his taste in women and friends is extremely questionable.
