Selena Gomez distanced herself from Demi Lovato when she entered rehab in 2010.
Selena Gomez has opened up about her fall out with Demi Lovato.
The two singers have been best friends since they were children but Selena has revealed they hit a rough patch back in 2010 when they were both 17.
At the time Demi entered rehab to deal with an eating disorder and self harm issues, and Selena admits she drifted away from her friend.
“I’ve known her since we were [seven years old], and we did fall apart for a while," she told the March issue of Seventeen magazine.
“She was going through things and I was so young and it was confusing. I processed it saying, ‘OK, I don’t understand what she’s going through so I’m just going to do this.’"
Despite not being there in her friend’s hour of need, the two girls managed to reconcile.
And Selena, now 21, admitted in the interview that she didn’t think her decision at the time was the right one.
“I don’t think it was fair," she said. “[But] I’m so happy that I have her back in my life now.”
According to Selena, going through such a dark period in her life has made Demi, also 21, a stronger individual.
The Come & Get It singer admitted she deeply admires her best friend for overcoming her demons.
“Demi’s very, very strong. I feel like we’re all given what we can handle, and clearly someone thought she could handle so much and she could, and she did," Selena explained.
“She’s incredible for that. I couldn’t imagine going through some of the things that she went through, and the fact that she is who she is today is insane, she’s one of my inspirations."
