The carousel featured three nostalgic snapshots of the longtime friends. The first slide captured the duo, gazing into each other’s eyes,
savoring a moment with champagne in a convertible. The second slide portrayed a tender embrace from Selena, wrapping her arms around the How I Met Your Father star.
Finally, the last slide depicted the two ladies hugging side-by-side, both radiant and glamorous during a past event.

Following the heartfelt tribute, Selena’s post garnered significant reactions from her massive 426 million followers on social media. Amidst the comments,
fans expressed admiration for Selena’s kindness and appreciation toward Francia.’Y’all may say what you want, but Selena Gomez has been nothing but polite and appreciative to Francia since the beginning,’ one fan said. &
that’s just the truth.’ Another fan added, ‘What a turn of events, notice how Selena never was the bitter one!’

It’s no secret that rumors of a feud between the two arose when Selena omitted Francia’s name during a November 2022 interview with Rolling Stone.
At that time, the ‘Wolves’ hitmaker openly declared Taylor Swift as her ‘only friend in the industry.’ Following the interview’s publication,
Francia responded in the comments section, calling her friend’s statement ‘interesting,’ as reported by InStyle.

Despite the past misunderstandings, Selena recently spoke warmly about her friend during an appearance on Apple TV+’s show Dear… on Mar.

She praised Francia for selflessly donating her kidney back in 2017, a moment where she felt incredibly fortunate and watched over.
Selena acknowledged the gravity of such a gesture and recognized how it profoundly impacts people’s lives. ‘I will never ever, ever be more in debt to a person
than Francia,’ Selena humbly expressed, going as far as to refer to Francia as her ‘best friend.’ Although Francia has re-posted birthday tributes from other friends,
Selena’s post has not been shared at the time of publication.”
