Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez have their friendship still strong as ever despite what rumors suggest. These two started out together and have sailed through the same route. They both have been popular Disney stars, co-stars, and then supported each other through their journey of becoming superhit singers. In a recent interview with People magazine, Demi’s mother opened up about her daughter and Gomez’s relationship.

Dianna De La Garza, Demi’s mum, said, “Demi and Selena love each other and always will love each other. She and Demi were auditioning for the same things because they were the same age, they were both Hispanic, they both had dark hair — so she ended up going to a lot of auditions with us.” Diana further added, “They started out together, we had some great times together. They will always love each other. There’s nothing that will ever come between them.”

Previously in 2015, when Justin Bieber and the Wolves singer had gone separate ways, news had come out that Demi and Selena were not on good terms. Reports said that they were not communicating. However, it is good to know that the two celebrities who have stuck by each other’s side through thick and thin will always be BFFs.

Diana also said that the news is not always right. So if you’re worried that your two favorite songstresses are not friends, don’t be. Diana said, “First, I would say don’t believe everything you read in the tabloids. I have read things about myself that I knew were not true.” The two stars even vlogged together back when they were teenagers. Fame definitely hasn’t changed the bond that they share.

The previous year, even the director of Barney & Friends had said that he had noticed the spark of friendship between Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. He had said, “Very early on, you could just tell, they clicked. Certain kids got along with other kids, and they were just two of those that really clicked. They were pretty inseparable and ate lunch together and all those types of things.”
