Did Demi Lovato & Selena Gomez End Their Feud?
The friends nearly tore the tweener world apart when their close friendship unraveled in early 2009 but the two have become friendly again since Demi was released from treatment late last year and they have even started tweeting sweet photos of themselves hanging out. Are these two former besties really back to being friends?
It sure looks like it! Last week, Selena tweeted a photo of her and Demi hugging at a restaurant. “Fun dinner with Selena,” Demi commented on the photo, adding a smiley emoticon.
The pair reportedly rekindled their friendship during Demi’s three-month stay at an in-patient treatment center last year. Selena allegedly reached out to her former pal while Demi was in treatment, sparking the pair’s reunion. Selena hinted that she was once again friendly with Demi when she referred to her as her “best friend” in an interview shortly after Demi left rehab.
Taylor Swift. Selena and Taylor bonded after the both dated Twilight hunk Taylor Lautner and Demi may or may not have felt a little left out of the pair’s new friendship.
Sources tell Celebuzz that most of the troubled friendship rested on Demi feeling ignored by Selena – particularly as SelGo’s star rose last year. Our source tells us that the Sonny with a Chance star was open to the idea of rekindling her friendship with Selena in the summer of 2010 but felt that she shouldn’t have to make the first move.
Our source explains that Demi seemed bitter that Selena wasn’t reaching out to her to hang out like they used to. “She seemed kind of weird about the situation,” our source adds.
Demi and Selena became fast friends when they met on the set of Barney nearly 12 years ago. The pair were homeschooled together as they entered the Disney star fast-track and they co-starred in their own movie (The Princess Protection Program) together. The friends would even make silly vlogs together on YouTube. Check out one early video below.
The 18-year-old Demi canceled her South American tour with the Jonas Brothers and checked herself into an undisclosed treatment center in late October. Demi was reportedly in treatment for issues with self-harm and an eating disorder. After she got out of rehab Demi got two wrist tattoos which read “Stay Strong.” Check out the photos below.
