Why Demi’s ditched BFFs Iggy, Selena

Demi Lovato is making major changes to her life and it appears that she has no room for former Australian BFF Iggy Azalea.

The Fancy rapper is not the only celebrity friend Lovato seems to have distanced herself from since her drug overdose in July.

The Sober singer has also unfollowed her childhood best friends Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas.

The move is a shock given Lovato was set to be a bridesmaid at Azalea's wedding to basketballer, Nick Young, which was later called off.

Lovato was also very close to Jonas, who she launched Safehouse Records together, and toured with.

Jonas was one of the very first celebrities to wish Lovato well on social media, calling her a fighter.

However, it may have been the public comments that prompted Lovato's anger at her former friends.

Lovato fired her jiu-jitsu instructor, Danielle Martin, who she had been close with for three years, causing social media users to question the move.

"It was completely unfair to fire Dani, she's one of the few who really cares about demi's health and has been helping her for 3 years, she's surrounded by people who only care about her money and she does not see it," one user wrote on Twitter.

Lovato hit back, saying "You have no idea what you're talking about. True friends don't do interviews about you when you OD."

Azalea also spoke about Lovato after her overdose. She has also stopped following Lovato on Instagram, suggesting the pair has definitely had a falling out.

Gomez also did an interview with Elle magazine. She didn't say much about Lovato but clearly her friend wasn't happy about it.

"All I'm saying is, I reached out personally. I didn't do a public thing. I didn't want to. I love her," she said. "I've known her since I was seven. So … it's … that's what I'll say," she told the magazine.
