As the 25-year-old's documentary addresses the former Disney darling's rise to fame, mental health struggles, and addiction battle, we knew fans would be there for the pop star. However, since Demi and Selly's friendship has ebbed and flowed over the years, we weren't sure if Gomez would even acknowledge the film.

Selena buried our doubts dead in the ground as she has ALREADY reached out to her childhood bestie. In the comments section of one of Lovato's promo posts for Simply Complicated, Selena dropped some words of love and support.

Soon, the comedian was all alone, with nothing in his life except the drugs he was addicted to. He explained:
