Theyâve still got that same old love for each other! Selena Gomez expressed her support for longtime pal Demi Lovato, who just released her intimate and deeply personal documentary, Simply Complicated.
âThis was beautiful. Iâm so happy for you,â Gomez commented on a teaser for the film that Lovato posted on her Instagram account on Tuesday, October 17. âYou always continue to [be] bold and real. I wish more people were like you. Love you.â
The Sonny With a Chance alum responded to the âFetishâ singerâs compliments shortly after. âThank you so much, this means the world to me and more,â Lovato wrote in the comments section. âLove you too.â
Fans also noticed on Wednesday, October 18, that the âBad Liarâ songstress and the âTell Me You Love Meâ crooner began following one another on Instagram again. The friends also showed support for each otherâs new music this summer via social media.
The former Disney stars, 25, met while costarring on the kidsâ show Barney and Friends in 2002. Although they were attached at the hip for nearly a decade, the 13 Reasons Why producer and the âSorry Not Sorryâ singer drifted apart. âIâve known her since we were 7 â and we did fall apart for a while,â Gomez told Seventeen in January 2014 of her and Lovatoâs relationship. âShe was going through things and I was so young and it was confusing â I processed it saying, âOK, I donât understand what sheâs going through so Iâm just going to do this.â And I donât think it was fair, and Iâm so happy that I have her back in my life now.â
Nonetheless, the pop stars have continued to support one anotherâs careers throughout the years. âWeâve had periods of time where we grew apart and we just didnât really talk,â Lovato said on an episode of Live From MTV in May 2013. âBut now weâre in a place where I think we realized that life is so short and that when you have people in your life that you love so much, then you should always be around them.â
The duo also reunited on Saturday, October 14, at the star-studded Somos Una Voz benefit concert to raise money for those affected by the recent natural disasters in Puerto Rico, the Caribbean and Mexico.
