As RadarOnline.com first reported, Selena Gomez hasn't spoken to her kidney donor ex-BFF Francia Raisa in nine months. And now, Radar can exclusively reveal the secret reason why — the two had a fight over the troubled singer's "unhealthy choices."

In the summer of 2017, Raisa gave Gomez, 27, one of her kidneys after the "Slow Down" star's own organs began to fail.

Following the ordeal, Gomez admitted that she would have died without Raisa, and said she was going to dedicate herself to getting healthy.

But according to a source, "Selena did the exact opposite of what she said she was going to do when she got well again. She said she was not going to drink anymore, but she did."

An upset Raisa, 31 — who has said she went through hell in the transplant recovery process — "called Selena out" on her behavior.

"She cares about her and she loves her," the source explained. "She told her that she was just really making some unhealthy choices, and that she was concerned for her."

Apparently, that did not sit well with Gomez, who admittedly checked into a wellness facility several months following the kidney operation after Radar exclusively reported she was spotted drinking alcohol at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City.

Sources told Radar exclusively that when Raisa confronted Gomez over her drinking, the two got into a fight. Then, the singer just "shut her out."

Months later, "Selena is in a better place. But because of everything that they've been through together, Selena doesn't know if she can ever really be a part of Francia's life again," the source said.

As Radar reported last year, Raisa said she went through physical and emotional agony for months following her transplant surgery for Gomez.

She said she was so weak, “I couldn’t pick up my dog — he’s 16 pounds. That was rough. I couldn’t walk him.”
