Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato’s relationship goes all the way back to their childhood stardom on “Barney and Friends,” to starring in “Princess Protection Program” on Disney Channel, and now as thriving solo artists. So the kind words coming from Selena Gomez’s mom are not a surprise. However, Ariana Grande’s mom revealed that Demi played a key role in helping Ariana’s brother, Frankie Grande, get sober.
In an Instagram post, Mandy Teefey shared a throwback photo of Selena and Demi laughing together. She captioned the sweet snapshot: “This was exactly 10 yrs ago at S, Sweet 16. @ddlovato we love you. The world is a better place because of these infectious smiles. My heart hurts.”
Meanwhile, Joan Grande took to Twitter to offer words of encouragement to the pop star.

“I am knocked down over Demi, I hope and pray that she recovers quickly and finds sobriety again. It is work, hard work, but with support and love, she will succeed! I know it, we are there for her in any way. She is a sweet, kind person who have, in my personal experience, always shown love to everyone in my world. She was there for Frankie during his work with sobriety and as we know, he just celebrated his ONE year. She has always been so supportive of Ariana as well, sharing her experiences with the fame and celebrity and notoriety of growing up in a very public space…women supporting women, what a fabulous idea! Yes, it can happen and does! SOOO, in light of my introspection today, I will be yet another voice on social media imparting an idea I came up with … let’s ALL make a deal today … let’s try to be nice to everyone, let’s try to remember that we are ALL human and no one is better than the other, let’s try to share love and light, let’s not pass judgement. Let’s not amplify negativity by repeating it. Remember, if you have nothing good to say, why say it?? Don’t say it! You never know how much you are hurting someone. Try not to find your own self-worth by knocking down others.”
