During a recent interview with Rolling Stones, Selena Gomez shared that according to her, she only has one friend in the industry, which is Taylor Swift, and explained that she never actually fit in with a cool group of girls that were celebrities, adding that she felt like she didn’t belong.
Selena Gomez explained during the interview that she felt the presence of everyone around her living full lives and she was in this position where she was really happy, but she did ask herself a lot of questions like was she really happy or do these materialistic things make her happy? and she eventually realized that she just didn’t like who she was because she didn’t know who she was.
Now, actress and longtime friend of Selena Gomez, Francia Raisa, who also donated her kidney to the singer, posted a comment, "Interesting," on a post that had selected that portion of that quote and posted it on their social media and later deleted it.
A user on TikTok shared a video breaking down their fallout for the audience, which included the fact that Francia Rasia does not follow Selena Gomez on Instagram and how she did not include her other friends in her documentary. After this, Selena Gomez took it upon herself to address the situation. She said that she did not need to mention every person she knows.
According to reports, even though Francia Raisa went ahead to delete the comment from the post and Selena Gomez’s reply to the video states that their feud has ended, it’s not clear whether the actresses have spoken about the comment or not. Fans were quick to point out that Selena Gomez had not mentioned Francia Raisa in her recently released documentary "My Mind & Me," which refers to her health struggles.
Francia Raisa opened up about her kidney donation process last March 2021 and stated on Twitter that she had decided to keep her kidney donation process private, but that she is now confident and at ease in speaking about her knowledge while using her platform to raise public awareness. She added that she feels she needs to do this for unexpected ways illnesses that affect the population. Selena Gomez quoted her tweet and wrote that she is grateful for it.
When Selena Gomez and Francia Raisa appeared on the Today Show in October 2017 to discuss Francia Raisa donating her kidney to Selena Gomez, whose own kidneys were shutting down due to lupus, Selena Gomez expressed her reluctance to ask Francia Raisa to be tested to see if she was a match.
Selena explained that she lived with her during an interesting moment when her kidneys were just done and that was it, adding that she didn't want to ask anyone in her life. The singer stated that asking someone to do that was extremely difficult for her, but Francia offered and did it, and even for someone who wants to volunteer, it is impossible to find a match. Selena described the fact that she had been a match as unbelievable and unreal.
Francia Raisa herself stated that Selena Gomez came home one day, emotional, and she hadn't asked anything, but she knew she hadn't been feeling well enough to open a water bottle one day. Francia said she threw it up, and she began crying, at which point she asked Selena what was wrong, and Selena explained that she doesn't know what to do; the donor wait list is 7 to 10 years long, and it just vomited out of Francia that of course she would get tested.
In an interview with ET in October 2019, Francia Raisa discussed her choice to donate her kidney to a friend in need. She stated that it was a faith-based decision, and she and she had discussed it before, and it just kind of occurred coincidentally, but she doesn't believe in unlikely events, but she acknowledges that's God's way of remaining anonymous. The actress expressed his gratitude for the opportunity.
Fans quickly labeled Selena Gomez as unthankful for the fact that Francia Raisa saved her life and she forgot to mention her. However, some of them responded by pointing out that Selena was speaking about people in the music industry, and Francia is not a part of it, so why is everyone upset? Francia appeared on Harry Connick Jr.'s show Harry previously where she stated that her recovery from surgery was more difficult than Selena Gomez's.
She explained that it's more difficult as a donor because they're losing something from their body that didn't need to be out, and they're trying to recover from that, while Selena gained something her body needed. The actress stated that Selena struggled to get up because she couldn't get up without assistance but added that the experience brought them closer and they became a family.
