Demi Lovato is known for speaking her truth and being transparent with her fans, and recently gave an honest answer about her on again/off again relationship with Selena Gomez.

Lovato sat down with Harper’s Bazaar to reflect on receiving a heart-felt message from Gomez following Demi’s emotional performance at this year’s GRAMMY Awards. Gomez wrote, “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.”

The ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ singer told Harper’s Bazaar how surprised she was to receive this message. When asked why, Demi responded, “When you grow up with somebody, you’re always going to have love for them. But I’m not friends with her, so it felt…” she pauses and continues with “I will always have love for her, and I wish everybody nothing but the best.”



Demi and Selena have had a long public friendship, starting early while working together on the set of Barney. As recently as 2017, the two referred to each other as family and were pictured sharing a hug at the InStyle Awards.

Although it doesn’t seem as if there’s any bad blood between the two, fans are pretty alarmed at how tumultuous their relationship has been, and are hoping they can reconnect as friends soon.
