It was widely rumoured they fell out following a string of bust ups.

But on Wednesday, Selena Gomez appeared to put any differences she and childhood BFF Demi Lovato had aside to reach out to the fellow singer on social media.

It comes as 25-year-old Demi released a candid documentary that looks back at her rise to fame, struggles with drug addiction, mental health and bulimia.

Demi shared a link to the YouTube documentary, titled Simply Complicated, on Tuesday.

And eagle-eyed fans noticed that Selena, 25, had commented on her Barney and Friends co-star’s post.

“This was beautiful,” she wrote. “I’m so happy for you. You always continue to be bold and real. I wish more people were like you.

“Love you,” she added.

Over the summer, Demi also silenced feud rumours when she appeared to give a nod to her former pal.

The singer posted a picture with two friends alongside the caption: “Kill em with kindness… or choke em with a smile on your face.”

Fans of the pair immediately assumed it was a reference to Selena’s 2015 track Kill Em With Kindness.

A month later Demi also tweeted Selena to praise her on her song Fetish. “Loving your new song Fetish, we’ve come a long way since our Barney days,” she tweeted her.

The former Disney star speaks candidly about her personal struggles in her new documentary which premiered on YouTube this week, but she admitted she still has not “conquered” her eating disorder.

“Food is still the biggest challenge in my life and it controls … I don’t want to give it the power to say it controls my every thought, but it’s something that I’m constantly thinking about,” she said.

And she shocked fans when she shared a photo of herself looking painfully thin during her struggle with the eating disorder alongside a current photo of herself looking much healthier.

“Recovery is possible,” she commented.

She also opened up about her struggle with drug addiction, which ranged from pills to cocaine.

The singer first publicly checked in to rehab aged 18 in 2010 for “emotional and psychological issues”.

“I wasn’t ready to get sober. I was sneaking it on planes, sneaking it in bathrooms, sneaking it throughout the night — nobody knew,” she said in the film. “I went on like a bender of like two months where I was using daily.”

Earlier this year, Demi posted an emotional message as she celebrated five years of sobriety after “so many ups and downs”.
