Shortly after announcing that she and Bachelor star Peter Weber had broken up, Madison made an unexpected appearance in the songstress' Instagram Stories. A source tells ET that Madison and Selena met through mutual Christian friends at Hillsong Church.
Selena took to her Instagram late Thursday evening to share a series of videos that began as a message to her fans about staying safe during the coronavirus outbreak. She then revealed that she and a group of friends decided to hit up a Target to stock up on board games to play while staying indoors for a while. ET's source says that this is typical night for Selena, who really enjoys chilling at home and playing board games with friends.
Among the group of gal pals was Madison, who seemed surprised to be filmed by Selena but appeared to be in high spirits.
While seeing Madison show up in Selena’s Instagram stories was a shock to so many people, the source says it’s not all that random at all. The women have a lot of mutual friends and really roll in the same extended social group. Selena rarely hangs out with Hollywood-types and avoids the Hollywood scene as much as possible, the source noted.
The source added that Selena’s close friends these days are all people who help her keep a healthy and drama-free life. Most of them rely heavily on their faith like she like she does, and Madison fits right in, according to the source.
Madison's unexpected appearance in Selena's Instagram Story and their foray to Target to stock up on games left many fans on Twitter stunned.
"Never did I ever expect to see Madi on Selena Gomez’s instagram story," one fan tweeted.
"Peter is probs out 'partying' with his brother and Madi is having game night with Selena Gomez," another Twitter user wrote. "They’ll both be just fine, but I think we know who the real winner of this breakup is."

"As Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways, I am confident that we will both move in the direction of our purpose and never forget that God has a plan in all things," Madison wrote. "I will always love and respect him. I am convinced our paths were meant to cross and we are both better because they did. @pilot_pete you are an amazing guy and I’m thankful for you. I will always be your biggest fan.
"Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us," Peter added, in part. "The love and respect I have for Madi will continue to endure."
He also thanked Madison for her "patience and unconditional love."
"You’re the epitome of a woman who carries herself with grace, stands by what she believes in, and loves whole heartedly. That love is something I feel so grateful to have felt and will take a piece of that with me always going forward," he wrote.
