LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Pop singer Selena Gomez strikes back with a surprisingly shocking comment underneath a TikTok video that was discussing how her former best friend Francia Raisa, who donated her kidney to Gomez in 2017, recently unfollowed her. The bitter feud allegedly started after Gomez's documentary, 'My Mind & Me', premiered, detailing her health struggles but giving no mention of Raisa.

Following that Gomez, 30, told Rolling Stone how Taylor Swift, 32, was her only friend in the music industry. “My only friend in the industry really is Taylor [Swift], so I remember feeling like I didn’t belong," she told the magazine. The quote was shared by the E! News Instagram handle, on which actress Raisa, 34, commented, "Interesting." It later emerged that Raisa deleted the comment and was also no longer following Gomez on Instagram. "Sorry I didn't mention every person I know," Gomez who still follows Raisa, commented on the TikTok video.

Gomez and Raisa have been friends for over 10 years and have even referred to each other as 'sisters' in the past. As recent as July, Raisa discussed how she had to alter her diet after she donated a kidney to Gomez. "Because I have one kidney functioning and it acts as a filter to my body, I can't consume as much protein. I eat a lot, I know I'm skinny, but I chow down so that was a very huge concern for me when I talked to the doctor," she told Yahoo Life.

Raisa and Gomez's feud originally started just a year after the kidney donation when Raisa took an issue with Gomez's 'unhealthy lifestyle' and her consuming alcohol following the surgery. The former Disney star even responded to a commentator who addressed the issue, after she shared a TikTok video where she joked about her drinking. "So one of your best friends gives you her kidney and you continue to drink excessively. Damn Selena," the user wrote, to which the singer replied, 'It was a joke a**." However, the duo reportedly reconciled in 2021.

Gomez in her documentary also opened up about her health battle and broke down into tears as she talked of her struggle with her lupus symptoms worsening. Lupus is an autoimmune disorder that causes the body's natural immune defenses to attack healthy tissue. The Singer even explains that the autoimmune disease was the toughest it had been in a while as she felt excruciating pain "everywhere." Raisa was also present at Gomez's 30th birthday party in July and Gomez even shared a TikTok video where the pair could be seen having fun together.
