Francia Raísa reply if she was ‘pressured’ to donate a kidney to Selena Gomez

This week Selena Gomez congratulated, through her social networks, her former best friend Francia Raísa, who donated her a kidney in 2017, due to her health problems resulting from lupus. And Selena ended up being criticized by some, since supposedly they moved away after a misunderstanding.

And because of that, the story behind the kidney donation once again dominated the Internet, with sources claiming that Raísa felt ‘pressured’ to donate the organ to Gomez, because they were inseparable friends at the time.

Now, Francia is clearing up some of those rumors on her “Good Guys” podcast, which she hosts with her “I Met Your Father” co-star Josh Peck.

She said of this rumour: “Whenever I thought of getting my name in the press, I never thought of it like that. I’ve always thought of it from an actor’s perspective.”

“She and I went public with our situation years ago and honestly, we had to. The press got wind of the story and we wanted to tell it. As for what’s been going on lately, does anyone prepare you for this sort of thing? Never. We never prepared for this kind of thing. It always takes me by surprise. I don’t know if it’s good or not.”

She recalled some negative comments she received when she donated, with people saying she only did it for publicity, to be in the media:

“I can’t read the comments because I don’t get along with them… Sometimes I disappear [from social media] because people are mean. People are very mean… They get you right there. Someone said, ‘Oh, you’re just looking for attention because your career is a bust.’ I’m like, ‘Is it a bust?’

And on whether she was forced to do the kidney donation, she continued: “Nobody forced me to do anything. It came from the genuine goodness of my heart,” he said, trying to put an end to the rumour.

Selena and Francia fell out in recent months after the singer commented that her best friend in the industry was Taylor Swift, ‘forgetting’ completely about the friend who donated her kidney.

Francia turned 35 on July 26 and received a tribute from Selena, who said: “The happiest birthday for this special human being. No matter where life takes us, I love you,” wrote the Selena.
