Selena Gomez and BFF Kidney Donor Sitting Down for Tearful Interview on ‘Today’

Selena Gomez and her BFF Francia Raisa are currently doing a joint interview with Savannah Guthrie for “Today,” and we’re told it is extremely emotional.

Sources with direct knowledge tell The Blast Selena is on the lot of Francia’s new show “Grown-ish,” as the pair are being interviewed about Francia donating her kidney to save Selena’s life.

Eyewitnesses on set tell us Selena and Francia are both in tears as they describe the ordeal. We’re told they are revealing the entire process, and how the experiences were emotionally and physically for each actress.

Our sources say Savannah Guthrie is having the two girls recount every detail of the kidney transplant surgery, step by step.  Selena made the trip to Burbank for Francia because she’s currently in production on the first season of the “Black-ish” spin-off.

The Blast broke the story, Selena underwent a life-saving kidney transplant after her best friend Francia donated her organ.  After Selena’s health began to decline due to complications with Lupus, she began the process of looking for an organ match.  Selena’s family was extensively tested, but it turned out Francia was determined to be the best match … and she stepped right up and offered to save her friend.

We are guessing that if producers have their way, this won’t be the last time Selena appears on the set of “Grown-ish.”

The interview should air later this week.
