Selena Gomez calls kidney donor Francia Raisa her ‘best friend’ amid feud rumors

Selena Gomez and Francia Raisa have seemingly worked things out after perviously shading one another online.

In an interview for Apple TV+’s “Dear…,” The Rare Beauty founder praised Raisa for selflessly donating her kidney back in 2017 amid the singer’s battle with lupus.

“My best friend. Her name is Francia. She said ‘No I am absolutely getting tested,’” Gomez recalled after finding out she needed a transplant.

“Within three days, she went to [get tested], and she was a match. And it was one of those moments where I felt watched over. I know I was so so so lucky,”

She continued, “I will never, ever, ever be more in debt to a person than Francia. The idea of someone not even second-guessing to be a donor was unbelievably overwhelming.”

While the pair seem to be on good terms now, they got into a squabble back in November after Gomez called Taylor Swift her “only friend in the industry.”

The comment didn’t sit right with the “How I Met Your Father” star, who wrote “Interesting” under an Instagram post highlighting Gomez’s quote.

The songstress later clapped back at her friend, writing, “Sorry I didn’t mention every person I know,” on a TikTok video explaining the rumored feud.

The beef left fans torn, with some arguing that Gomez’s comments were taken out of context while others shamed the “Who Says?” singer for slighting the person that saved her life.

“I honestly feel like this whole thing was just taken out of proportion and Selena meant the music industry which Francia isn’t part of,” one follower wrote.

“she might genuinely not thing of Francia as an ‘industry friend’ but more as a sister, that was my first thought!” another commented.

While a third argued, “Francia saved her life! She should’ve at least acknowledged her on the documentary!!!!!”

The ladies have had a very on and off friendship over the past couple of years.

After the release of Gomez’s 2022 documentary “My Mind and Me,” fans noticed that Raisa unfollowed the “Only Murders in the Building” actress on Instagram after she was left unnamed in the film.

The move came as a shock to fans given the fact Raisa attended Gomez’s 30th birthday party just a few months prior.
