Selena Gomez recently underwent a harrowing ordeal that seems to have left her with a new lease on life and a closer bond with a friend who’s now been promoted to soul mate status.
We’re talking, of course, about Selena’s decision to get back together with Justin Bieber.
Yes, strange as it seems, Bieber and Gomez are once again an item following her breakup with The Weeknd.
Did the timing of the decision have anything to do with Selena’s recent life-saving kidney transplant?
We may never know for certain, how it impacted her feelings toward the Biebs, but sources say Justin decided to devote himself to winning Selena back when he learned that she almost died.
Of course, as is so often the case with Justin’s love life, there’s a third party involved in this situation.
This time, however, it’s not an anxious groupie nervously answering Justin’s Patrick Bateman-like trivia questions about how many hits he’s recorded.
No, we’re referring to Francia Raisa, the woman who made a serious bid for the title of BFF of the Year by donating her kidney to Selena.
It seems that like millions of others, Francia is not thrilled with the idea of a Jelena reconciliation.
In fact, she’s downright against it.
The reason, according to Radar Online, is simple:
Francia feels that Justin will hurt Selena again, and she’s sick of consoling her friends for making the same mistake over and over.
“Selena’s friends bore the brunt of her sadness when Bieber broke her heart time after time over all these years,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.
“Everyone knows this reunion is very bad news,” the insider adds.
But while Selena’s inner circle is apparently unanimously opposed to the rekindled romance, no one has voiced their opposition more loudly than Francia:
“But its Francia who’s the most vocal — she’s saying she didn’t donate a body organ to save Selena’s life only for her to go and ruin it by running back to him,” says the source.
We’re not sure how the rules work on that.
If you donate an organ to someone, does that give you power over them for the rest of their life?
If so, we need to get on this biological gift bandwagon.
We don’t really need two kidneys, but we do need autonomy over the lives of our friends and family.
