Selena Gomez as well as Francia Raisa are ready to tell their story.
The two sat down for the 1st time with Today’s Savannah Guthrie for an emotional interview set to air next week, months after Gomez received a kidney transplant coming from Raisa. As for why the pair, who revealed their surgery in September, waited to speak out about the procedure, a source tells ET which they wanted to make sure everything was on “their own terms.”
“the item was definitely hard for [Raisa] to keep This particular a secret. Paparazzi follow Selena everywhere as well as their friend group is usually definitely close, however Francia didn’t tell anyone she was going to do This particular. the item was a private thing between her as well as Selena,” the source says, adding which they “always planned to speak out about the item, however wanted to wait until they had healed as well as they were in a place where they could share their story on their terms.”
In a promo for their Today show interview, Gomez is usually seen tearing up while talking about Raisa’s kidney donation. “My kidneys were just done,” Gomez says. “which was the item, as well as I didn’t want to ask 1 person in my life… as well as [Raisa] volunteered as well as did the item.”
