Selena Gomez: No Longer on Speaking Terms With Friend Who Donated Kidney

by at .

Back in 2017, Selena Gomez underwent a life-saving kidney transplant.

The donor was her longtime friend Francia Raisa, who risked her life in a procedure riddled with complications.

Thankfully, both Gomez and Raisa survived the procedure.

Their friendship, on the other hand, has officially been pronounced dead.

According to a new report from Radar Online, Selena and Francia have not spoken in over nine months.

“They haven’t talked at all since October,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.

The news comes as a shock to many, as Selena repeatedly sang Francia's praises in the weeks after her surgery.

“She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me,” Gomez told Elle at the time.

“I am incredibly blessed.”

Selena tells the magazine she was so frail at one point that she was completely unable to perform the simplest of household tasks.

“I couldn’t pick up my dog  — he’s 16 pounds. That was rough. I couldn’t walk him.”

Despite her brush with death, there are certain lifestyle changes that Selena simply refuses to make.

For example, while many who have had issues with their kidneys choose to steer clear of alcohol and other substances that might tax the organs, Selena has proudly proclaimed that she still enjoys the occasional glass of wine.

“As far as my personal life, someone sees me having a glass of wine? I could give two sh-ts," she told Elle.

"I’m not trying to hide. That’s my life."

While that's certainly her prerogative, the folks at Radar speculate that Selena's continued partying may have played a role in Rasia's decision to end the friendship.

Selena checked into rehab back in February, and many of her friends reportedly believe that drinking is one of the activities she should avoid for the sake of both her physical and mental wellbeing.

We may never know exactly what led to the falling-out between Selena and Francia.

But if Gomez was the one to pull the plug on the friendship -- as is currently being rumored -- we hope she can find it in heart to forgive her former friend.

After all, she literally carries a piece of Raisa with her everywhere she goes.
