Taylor Swift has not neglected her old friendships despite acquiring new celebrity pals such as Sophie Turner and Brittany Mahomes. The 33-year-old recently donated two of her concert tickets to Selena Gomez’s charity auction, which was held on Wednesday night. Taylor and Selena have been close friends for 15 years, and Selena reportedly entered treatment for a breakdown in 2018. The Rare Impact Fund, which Selena was raising funds for, supports those with mental health issues. Taylor’s tickets were for her Eras Tour, which has been a massive financial success and is bringing her closer to becoming a billionaire. Fans have been eager to attend her shows, and the tickets donated to Selena’s auction sold for $15,000.
Taylor Swift made a charitable gesture by auctioning off two of her concert tickets during a fundraising event hosted by Selena Gomez on Wednesday evening. Gomez was also in attendance at the event.
Taylor provided support to the project by donating tickets for her successful Eras Tour, which were sold for $15,000. She was photographed during one of her shows in Las Vegas in March.
Taylor and Selena have maintained a strong friendship since 2008, when they were both young stars dating members of the Jonas Brothers. Recently, the two were pictured together at a Hollywood gala hosted by Martin Short, who co-stars with Selena and Steve Martin on the popular Hulu sitcom Only Murders In The Building. During the event, bids for tickets to Taylor’s shows reached staggering heights, with some going for three times the initial asking price. H.E.R. also performed, entertaining guests such as Sofia Carson, Colton Underwood, and Benny Blanco. Notably, Selena’s friend and kidney donor Francia Raisa was in attendance, suggesting that any previous feuds between the two have been resolved. While Selena had a tumultuous on-and-off relationship with Justin Bieber, she has been open about her mental health struggles, including her diagnosis with bipolar disorder, anxiety, and depression.
Selena, aged 31, was said to have sought treatment following a breakdown in 2018. She has recently been involved in fundraising efforts to support individuals struggling with mental illness.
The big event took place in Hollywood and was hosted by the talented Martin Short, who happens to also be a co-star alongside Selena Gomez and Steve Martin on the popular Hulu series Only Murders In The Building.
Success: Martin initiated the auction with a starting bid of $5,000. However, the popularity of Taylor’s concerts has skyrocketed to such an extent that the tickets ended up selling for triple the original amount.
Currently, Taylor is taking a break from her Eras Tour and has been enjoying a passionate romance with NFL star Travis Kelce. Recently, at a party after one of Travis’s games with the Kansas City Chiefs, she became friends with Brittany Mahomes, the wife of Patrick Mahomes, who is also a teammate of Travis. Additionally, she has been forming a close bond with Sophie Turner during Sophie’s divorce from Joe Jonas. Taylor previously dated Joe in 2008 and has written several songs rumored to be about him, including the harsh “Better Than Revenge.” Joe and Sophie tied the knot in 2019 but separated last month, leading to a contentious custody dispute over their two young daughters, with Joe wanting them to stay in the US and Sophie advocating for the UK.
