Selena Gomez and Francia Raisa have apparently worked things out after previously shading each other online.

In an interview for Apple TV+’s “Dear…,” The Rare Beauty founder praised Raisa for selflessly donating her kidney in 2017 amid the singer’s battle with lupus.

“My best friend. Her name is France. She said, ‘No, I’m absolutely tested,” Gomez recalled after finding out she needed a transplant.

“Within three days she went (to get tested) and she was compatible. And it was one of those times when I felt watched. I know I was so lucky,”

Gomez opened up about Raisa’s selfless decision to donate her kidney in a new interview with Apple TV+.

She continued, “I will never, ever, ever be more indebted to anyone than Francia. The idea of ​​someone not even considering being a giver was incredibly overwhelming.

While the pair seem to be on good terms now, they fell out in November after Gomez called Taylor Swift the “only friend in the industry.”

The comment didn’t sit well with the ‘How I Met Your Father’ star, who wrote “Interesting” under an Instagram post highlighting Gomez’s quote.

The ‘How I Met Your Father’ and ‘Who Says?’ actress singer have had their fair share of ups and downs over the years.

The singer then applauded her friend, writing, “Sorry I didn’t mention everyone I know,” on a TikTok video explaining the rumored feud.

The beef left fans torn, with some saying Gomez’s comments were taken out of context while others shamed the “Who said?” singer for offending the person who saved her life.

“Honestly I feel like this was all over the top and Selena meant the music industry Francia is not a part of,” one follower wrote.

“she really might not consider Francia an ‘industry friend’ but more like a sister, that was my first thought!” another commented.

While a third argued, “Francia saved his life! She should have at least recognized her in the documentary!!!!!”

Raisa gave Gomez one of her kidneys in 2017.

The ladies have had a very on-and-off friendship over the past two years.

Following the release of Gomez’s 2022 documentary ‘My Mind and Me’, fans noticed that Raisa unfollowed the ‘Only Murders in the Building’ actress on Instagram after she was unnamed in the film.

The decision came as a shock to fans considering Raisa had attended Gomez’s 30th birthday party a few months prior.
