Selena Gomez -- who recently stepped out looking radiant in a stunning purple ensemble at the premiere of her new documentary -- made a rare comment about her friendship with Francia Raísa following online chatter that suggested the Only Murders in the Building actress allegedly snubbed her longtime pal during a Rolling Stones interview by stating that she considers Taylor Swift to be her "only friend".

After the quote was shared in an E! News Instagram post over the weekend, Francia—who has been friends with Selena for over a decade -- allegedly wrote that the quote was "interesting" in a since-deleted comment.

Now, in response to the online criticism, on Nov. 6 she took to TikTok to diffuse the drama. "Sorry I didn't mention every person I know," she said in her short video shared with her multitude of followers.

The response from the singer regarding the online speculation comes almost five years after the 30-year-old shared she underwent a kidney transplant as a result of her Lupus diagnosis, and that her friend Francia was the donor.
