Everyone, breathe a sigh of relief:
The million-dollar tidbit came during an appearance on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" when Lovato played "Plead the Fifth" with host Andy Cohen on Thursday evening.
"So much speculation about [the unfollowing]," Cohen began, posing the third of three questions after Lovato had answered one and "pled the fifth" on the second. "Can you tell us why?"
"Um, I plead the sixth, if that's in the game," she replied, sitting alongside co-guest
"Are people reading too much into it?" Cohen asked. "Are they reading into something that doesn't exist?"
"I think it's just one of those things," the "Really Don't Care" singer answered, "where people change and people grow apart."
What do you know, a normal thing that happens to normal people. Who would have thunk it?
The cutting of ties became clear in July when fans noticed that Lovato, 21, had unfollowed Gomez, 22, on Twitter. Being the close watchers they are, fans also pointed out how Lovato reportedly tweeted then deleted a message that she was "Swimming away from" the BS -- a message that was capped with some name-calling.
The tweet marked the second time the former Disney stars had a public fallout. Their friendship hit a rough patch in 2010, but when the pair were photographed together in 2013 days after Gomez’s ex-boyfriend
At the time, Lovato told MTV News, "We've had periods of times when we grew apart, and we just didn't really talk. But now we're in a place where we realize that life is so short, and that when you have people in your life that love you so much, then you should just always be around them."
This time around, it seems like one of those we-grew-apart moments.
"I've seen some dark times, especially with the depressive phase of the illness," the "X Factor" judge revealed in a video on her YouTube channel. "Bipolar depression really got my life off track, but today I'm proud to say I'm living proof that someone can live, love and be well with bipolar disorder when they get the education, support and treatment they need.
