Selena Gomez and Nicola Peltz Beckham’s newfound friendship may be totally unexpected (considering they both share the same ex, aka Justin Bieber), but the two seem to have gotten pretty close since soft launching their tight-knit bond back in November 2022.
In honor of the release of Gomez’s “My Mind and Me” documentary, the pair hosted a girls’ night sleepover together and documented the occasion with a fun photo series on Instagram, complete with matching pink pajamas, cuddles, and tons of sugar-filled snacks. “girls night celebrating your beautiful documentary congratulations selena! 💕🍨🍝🍰🥂 (thanks b for the best food everrrrr🤤),” Nicola captioned her post.
Since then, the new pair of besties have given us small glimpses of their friendship — from their matching tattoos to their twinning New Year’s Eve looks. Gomez even confirmed her and Nicola’s BFF status by joking that the two, along with the latter’s husband, Brooklyn Peltz Beckham, are in a three-way relationship. “Fine calls us a throuple #foreverplusone,” the Golden Globes-nominated actor captioned a recent Instagram post of the trio.
