Selena Gomez and her close friend, Francia Raisa shocked fans after making headlines in 2017 after Raisa donated her kidney to Gomez.

The pair, who have been friends since 2007, first opened up about the procedure during an interview on TODAY in 2017.

Gomez, who suffers from Lupus, a chronic and debilitating condition that affects the immune system, needed a kidney transplant to save her life.

“One day [Selena] came home and she was emotional. I hadn’t asked anything. I knew she hadn’t been feeling well,” Raisa recalled. “She couldn’t open a water bottle one day. She chucked it and she started crying.

“I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ and that’s when she told me. And she goes, ‘I don’t know what to do. The list is seven to ten years long.’ It just vomited out of me: I was like, ‘Of course, I’ll get tested.’”

However, fans were then shocked after reports emerged two years later that Gomez and Raisa were no longer friends.

Are Selena Gomez and Francia Rasia still friends?

In 2019, Radar Online reported that Gomez and Raisa stopped speaking in October 2018 after Raisa was allegedly left hurt by the choices Gomez was making.

Raisa allegedly stopped speaking to Gomez when the star started drinking again.

A source told the news outlet that Gomez had been drinking alcohol and partying following the life-saving transplant, which wasn’t making Raisa happy.

“Yes, she has a drink from time to time. It is not every day, and she is not using drugs. She is enjoying her life and living it how she wants to live it,” the source claimed, adding that Gomez was tired of “feeling indebted” to Raisa.
