So, who is Courtney Lopez? Keep reading this short bio to learn all about one of Selena’s closest friends.
My Mind & Me: Meet Courtney Lopez, Selena Gomez Friend
Courtney Lopez is one of Selena Gomez’s friends who saved her.
As featured in Apple TV Plus’s new documentary Selena Gomez: My Mind & Me, the pop singer suffered from an episode of psychosis in 2018. She looked like a completely different person then. Fortunately, she was surrounded by her closest friends including Courtney who kept her sane.
“I have to say that my friendships really did save me in a huge way and it was because I was aware of who I’m surrounding myself with. So the people in my life are lovely people, people who have substance, who live normal lives, and have priorities and responsibilities that I might not have,” the star explained.
After the successful recovery, that very year, Selen and her three closest friends got matching tattoos. And it seems the star kept Courtney in number 1 — getting matching “1” tattoos.
“You are an incredible woman. The way you handle life’s most confusing moments is indescribable and graceful. You are the definition of FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made baby. #1,” Selena wrote on her IG.
Another reason Courtney was Selena’s number 1 is because of their seven years of friendship.
