Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato have a long history dating all the way back to acting together in Barney & Friends as kids. The two formed a close friendship back in their Disney days but began drifting apart during their music careers when their friendship continued to face many ups and downs.
Demi Lovato’s new YouTube documentary, So Complicated, was an honest look at some of the singer’s personal experiences and struggles she’s faced in her life, including rehab, drug addiction and an eating disorder. Lovato received an enormous amount of love and support not only from fans who highly approved of the film but she also received a very heartfelt message from former best friend Selena Gomez.
When the documentary released, Lovato posted on Instagram to announce the news: “Proud to present… #SimplyComplicated. Watch the full documentary now on @YouTube!!”
Gomez commented on the post expressing how happy she is for Lovato. She wrote, “This was beautiful. I’m so happy for you. You always continue to [be] bold and real. I wish more people were like you.” Gomez left an additional comment, “Love you.”

While the two have had a bumpy past, it’s obvious that no matter what, they’ll continue to have each other’s backs.
