Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato may be bffs now, but the former Disney Channel stars haven’t always had an easy friendship.
In the March issue of Seventeen, Gomez opens up about her complicated history with Lovato.
“I’ve known her since we were seven—and we did fall apart for a while,” says Gomez, who is the mag’s latest cover girl. “She was going through things and I was so young and it was confusing—I processed it saying, ‘OK, I don’t understand what she’s going through so I’m just going to do this.’ And I don’t think it was fair, and I’m so happy that I have her back in my life now.”
Gomez went on to praise Lovato, who’s had her share of personal struggles in the last few years. “I couldn’t imagine going through some of the things that she went through, and the fact that she is who she is today is insane—she’s one of my inspirations,” says the “Come and Get It” singer.
