Her friends have been sharing their thoughts on Lovato's relapse, but Gomez has been particularly quiet until recently.

In an interview with Elle magazine, taken days after Lovato's hospitalization, but was published only now, she got emotional while talking about her friend's relapse. Gomez maintained that she'd chosen to reach out privately instead of making a public show of concern.
