Demi Lovato insists she’s ‘NOT friends’ with Selena Gomez and slams ex-BFF for praising her Grammy performance – The Sun

DEMI Lovato has insisted she's "not friends" with Selena Gomez.

The 27-year-old singer slammed her former BFF for praising her Grammys performance in January, while discussing their feud in Harper's Bazaar.

Selena called Demi "inspirational" after she tearfully sang Anyone at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards – a song she'd written days before she was hospitalized following her suspected 2018 drug overdose.

Gomez wrote on her Instagram Stories at the time: "I wish there were words to describe how beautiful, inspirational and DESERVED this moment was.

"Demi I'm so happy for you. Thank you for your courage and bravery."

But discussing Selena's post, Demi said: “When you grow up with somebody, you’re always going to have love for them."

She added, "But I’m not friends with her, so it felt…" before stopping herself.

Demi then said: “I will always have love for her, and I wish everybody nothing but the best.”

The Sorry Not Sorry singer met Selena on Barney And Friends in 2002, when she payed Angela and Selena played Gianna.

They were both just seven at the time and quickly became friends.

The pair used to create YouTube vlogs for their fans and in one clip, Selena introduces Demi by saying, "And this is my best friend since we were seven years old."

Demi – who is dating Max Ehrich – then replied: "On Disney."

They remained close in their teenage years, starring in the Disney original film Princess Protection Program together.

The Come And Get It singer told Elle: "All I’m saying is, I reached out personally.

"I didn’t do a public thing. I didn’t want to. I…I love her. I’ve known her since I was seven. So…it’s…that’s what I’ll say."

Selena's mother Mandy Teefey also lent her support to Demi after the overdose.

Mandy shared a snap of the girls at Selena's Sweet 16 on Instagram and captioned it: "This was exactly 10 yrs ago at S, Sweet 16. @ddlovato we love you.

"The world is a better place because of these infectious smiles. My heart hurts."
