Selena Gomez has revealed the story behind her broken hand.
The singer, 31, admitted she sustained the injury after tripping on her long summer dress.
During an appearance on The Ellen K Morning Show, Selena confessed: ‘So I wish I had like a really cool story that I saved someone’s life or something. But I was in a long dress, it was a summer dress, and I was walking from my car to my house and tripped.
‘As a mother, I just want to say if you were my daughter, I would say thank God you didn’t break your teeth,’ host Ellen said.
‘Yes, that’s what the doctor said. I guess there is a silver lining. But this is not fun, this is not fun,’ Selena said.

It comes several days after Selena revealed she had broken her hand and had to undergo surgery for it.
Writing in the comments section of a fan account promoting her new song Single Soon she said, ‘Broke my hand and had surgery.’
The Calm singer followed that brief disclosure with, ‘I don’t care about selling anything. I’m just happy to make music with my friends.’
The Only Murders in the Building star didn’t go into any detail about which hand was broken, how it happened, or the extent of the injuries.
Single Now’s success may help Selena’s healing process.
It debuted at number two on the Spotify Global charts, right behind Miley Cyrus’ Used To Be Young.
In a Billboard poll on August 25, the day both Selena and Miley released their new singles, 42-percent of fans who responded picked Used to be Young as their favorite new music.
Selena’s tune about plotting to break up with her beau received 33-percent of the vote.

Both singles beat out BLACKPINK’s The Girls, Ariana Grande’s Yours Truly 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, and Zach Bryan’s new self-titled single.
Single Soon debuted as number one trending music video on YouTube, according to Chart Data.
Selena has described the track produced by benny blanco and Cashmere Cat as ‘a playful anthem about being comfortable in your own skin and loving your own company.’
Hit: Selena’s new release, Single Soon, is already a huge hit. The track debuted at number two on the Spotify Global charts. The video was trending at number one on YouTube following its August 25 debut
‘And it’s also really fun to dance to!’ she added.
Single Soon is expected to be included on a forthcoming album, but there’s no word yet when that will be.
‘Since I’m not quite done with SG3, I wanted to put out a fun little song I wrote a while back that’s perfect for the end of summer,’ the MTV Video Music Award winner explained on social media ahead of the release.
In January, Selena told Vanity Fair, ‘If I had my way, I would probably write ballads my whole life, but I want to produce music that will make people smile.’
She then explained, ‘The music I’m doing right now is about real things that I’m walking through.’
‘It’s really powerful, strong, very pop. The theme generally is freedom—freedom from relationships, freedom from the darkness.’
