The Incredible Saga of Disney’s Original Trio: Tracing their Eventful Voyage through Time.

Shall we take a trip down memory lane to 10 years ago? The year was 2009 and our favorite Disney stars were Miley Cyrus in Hannah Montana, Selena Gomez in Wizards of Waverly Place, and Demi Lovato in Sonny With a Chance. It was a time where everything seemed perfect on our television screens. However, rumors circulated in magazines about drama between the trio, mainly pitting Miley against Demi and Selena. Today, we ponder on their friendship over the years and delve into what truly happened – and if they still remain close.

15 Incredible Miley Cyrus Performances That Prove She's a Damn Musical Treasure

Here are some of the most unforgettable performances by Miley Cyrus that showcase her incredible musical talent.

A Rocky Start

Back in 2008, Demi and Selena became friends as young children. However, when they began their Disney channel roles alongside Miley, it often felt like a two-against-one situation, even though Demi and Miley got along well during the filming of Hannah Montana in 2007. Matters were complicated when Nick Jonas and Miley dated from 2006 to 2007, and soon after their split, Selena began dating Nick. To make things worse, Miley made a video with her friend Mandy that mocked Demi and Selena’s video. Although Miley took down the video and apologized, this marked the beginning of significant tension between them.

In 2009, Demi and Selena starred in their first film together called Princess Protection Program. While there are many pictures of Miley and Demi posing on the red carpet at events throughout the year, the same cannot be said of Miley and Selena.

In 2010, when a fan asked Demi about Selena, she replied, “Ask Taylor,” indicating that something was amiss between the former best friends. In an interview with Girls Life in the same year, Demi spoke about their friendship, stating that they were both busy and that she wished Selena the best. “True friends don’t let their friends or family be mean to you,” she said. “If you can’t trust somebody, you can’t be friends with them.”

The Girls Support Demi

Demi Lovato received support from her close friends during her rehab stint in 2011 for substance abuse. In a Television Net interview, Demi shared how Selena Gomez was one of the first people to reach out to her while she was in rehab. According to Demi, Selena called her crying and expressed her concern. The two grew closer since then and were seen laughing and smiling together at the Kids’ Choice Awards that year. Demi also expressed her appreciation for Miley Cyrus, who sent her a Christmas present when she was in rehab, which meant a lot to her because she did not receive any gifts during the holiday season. She referred to her friends as incredible, and their support helped her through a challenging time.

Things Get Complicated For Demi and Miley . . . and Selena

Over time, the friendship dynamics among Demi, Miley, and Selena have been intricate. According to an interview with Seventeen Magazine back in 2012, Demi revealed that her friendship with Miley is a bit tricky because they both have strong personalities that often lead to brutal fights. Nevertheless, they always patch things up within a few days and express their love for each other. On the other hand, Demi and Selena hardly fight because Selena isn’t confrontational. Despite the highs and lows, the trio has been through a lot together, and they’ll always be intertwined in one another’s lives. In 2014, Demi mentioned during a radio interview that she no longer had anything in common with Miley and wished her well. As for Selena, she unfollowed her on Twitter, but Demi still regards her as a friend. Although Demi also unfollowed Miley on Twitter in 2015, she later refollowed Selena in time to wish her a happy birthday. The relationship between these three girls may seem distant on the surface, but it’s far from straightforward and has seen its own fair share of complications over the years.
