SOBER BUD­DIES

THE OLD PALS HAVE RE­CON­NECTED IN THEIR TIME OF NEED

OK! (Australia) - - This Week -

Long-time BFFS Se­lena Gomez and Demi Lo­vato are lean­ing on each other, now that Sel’s com­pleted a one-month stay at a psy­chi­atric fa­cil­ity and the newly sober Demi has fin­ished her three-month stint in re­hab.

‘Since they got out, Se­lena and Demi made a pact to speak to each other if they feel like things are spi­ralling again,’ a source close to the for­mer Dis­ney stars, both 26, tells. ‘They text reg­u­larly and speak on the phone to check in. [They] share sto­ries about their road to re­cov­ery and dis­cuss how ther­apy helps them stay on the right track.’

Three months af­ter Demi’s near-fa­tal over­dose, Se­lena – who went to re­hab in 2014 af­ter be­ing di­ag­nosed with lu­pus and again in 2016 for de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety – re­port­edly suf­fered an emo­tional break­down in Oc­to­ber.

‘They ob­vi­ously have doc­tors and pro­fes­sion­als on hand as they con­tinue to seek out­pa­tient treat­ment,’ the source notes. ‘But hav­ing grown up in the spot­light to­gether, they can relate to each other in a way that no­body else can.’
