Selena Gomez and Francia Raisa are reunited – and now everyone can move on, because there’s no drama here.
The couple, whose friendship has been the subject of much speculation amid a rumor, looked as happy and close as ever in a fun TikTok video showing the Only murders in the building star shared. In it, they were playful and seemed comfortable with each other while chatting about men.
At the end of the TikTok challenge, they seemingly acknowledged the drama between them.
“He’s a 10, but he hates your best friend…” Gomez said of a potential partner.
The The Secret Life of the American Teen alum made a face, seemingly outraged at the idea, then turned left and joked, “Oh, I hate her sometimes too.”
They burst into tears and fell into each other, with Gomez replying, “Frankly, fair enough.”
It’s nice to see them happy together. After all, the women were once so close that Raisa donated one of her kidneys to Gomez in 2017, a decade after they first met. Gomez, who has lupus, nearly died after the transplant and underwent a second emergency surgery to save her life. The women went out with the donor story after their recovery had begun.
While the best friends — who called each other “sister” — shared scar photos and praised each other’s strength during the challenging time (they both had post-transplant depression), they reportedly had a falling out at some point in late 2018. The rumor mill has spiraled out of control with speculation as to why they’ve cut ties, but neither spoke about it publicly. Because they were so close, the silence was deafening.
In 2021 it turned out that there were breakthroughs. Raisa used social media to share about being an organ donor on World Kidney Day. Though she didn’t tag or mention Gomez, Gomez shared it again, thanking Raisa for “her blessings” and saying she was “forever grateful.”
And then, well, bam. Now they’re making videos about BFFs and laughing at men like the past four years haven’t happened — and we’re all for it.
Earlier this week, Raisa opened up to Yahoo Life about her health and wellness related to being an organ donor. She said her diet had to change after donating her kidney to Gomez, admitting it was a “very big concern for me.” Read the full interview here.
