Selena Gomez addresses shocking fall out with kidney donor BFF Francia Raisa
Selena Gomez appears to have fallen out with her best friend Francia Raisa, with their troubles hitting social media over the weekend.
The pair had been close friends for over ten years, with Francia Raisa donating her kidney to Selena Gomez, which she needed due to complications from Lupus back in 2017.
However, things seemed to take a dramatic turn as 30-year-old Selena divulged that Taylor Swift was her only industry friend in a profile for Rolling Stone shortly after the release of her Apple TV+ documentary My Mind & Me – which Francia was not mentioned in despite it covering six years of the former Disney star’s life.
Talking about her friendship circle, Selena confessed: “I never fit in with a cool group of girls that were celebrities. My only friend in the industry really is Taylor [Swift], so I remember feeling like I didn’t belong.”
Francia Raisa, who has also starred in Bring It On: All or Nothing and The Secret Life of the American Teenager, didn’t take too well to being excluded from Selena’s list of pals. In fact, she was so annoyed she commented “interesting” in the comments section of an E! News post that shared the exact quote from Selena. She also unfollowed Selena from Instagram.
Back in 2017, Rare Beauty founder Selena opened up about receiving an organ transplant amid her battle with Lupus. “So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health.
In 2018, Francia spoke to US Weekly about the support she had received following her actions: “It’s honestly been overwhelming and very amazing. I’m never really open about my personal life, and it’s amazing the response that I’ve been getting from people. I’m honestly just honoured.”
