Lovato, also 26, was hospitalised for more than a week after she was found unresponsive in bed after a reported drug overdose on July 24.

"All I'm saying is, I reached out personally," Gomez said. "I didn't do a public thing. I didn't want to. I … I love her. I've known her since I was seven. So … it's … that's what I'll say."

Lovato publicly dissed her one-time BFF in 2014, saying she was sick of her "bulls**t".

"Swimming away from the bulls*** bye b****," she tweeted - and promptly deleted - in July last year.

She later confirmed on TV that she was fine with not being in Gomez's life anymore.

However, the pair is said to be closer again and that much of the drama between the two was due to Gomez's relationship with ex, Justin Bieber.
