Since leaving treatment last month, sources say Taylor Swift has been a ‘constant source of comfort’ for Selena Gomez.



A source tells Entertainment Tonight, “Selena is in a really good place.  She’s taking time for herself and reconnecting with friends and important people in her life.  Taylor has always been a constant source of comfort for Selena, and aside from having a great friendship, the two are able to connect on a level that most will never understand.”  Selena and Taylor have been friends for well over a decade and their friendship bloomed when they both dated a Jonas brother: Taylor dated Joe Jonas and Selena dated Nick Jonas.  The relationships took off in 2008 and since then, they have remained close friends.

Taylor recently posted this photo on Instagram, the first time Selena has been seen on the platform, looking happy and healthy!

The source continues, “They are two of the most famous people in the world and deal with things normal people don’t have to think about.  At the end of the day the most important thing for Selena is to be happy.”  Selena suffers from Lupus, which she’s been very open and honest about to her fans.  Last summer, due to her Lupus, Selena had a kidney transplant and in October, because of all her health scares, she broke down and was eventually hospitalized and had to seek treatment, “It’s very hard for Selena because she loves to work and stay busy.  Unfortunately, the amount of time spent at the hospital, without much improvement created anxiety for Selena, and made her extremely emotional, causing her to have panic attacks,” a source explains.



Selena’s mom Mandy Teefey told ET in May, “What I love about that friendship is it’s so solid, and with Taylor, I feel like they can tell each other anything, and it will be an honest, in-your-best-interest kind of relationship.  It’s not about anything else, and it’s one you don’t just find out here.” 



Let’s face it …. we ALL need a friend like Taylor!
