Construction of future tense

It says with future proche the placement of me, te, lui, etc. is between aller and faire (du) mal. But in "Il va faire mal à ma meillure amie" that is not where it is placed. Isn't that sentence future proche? I'm confused.

This question relates to:
French lesson "Faire mal à vs faire du mal à = to hurt someone"

Actually I just realized there is no me, te, lui, etc. in that sentence. But I would like to see an example where it is constructed that way.

How  about this: Il va me faire mal.

Hi Nicole,

 Il va faire mal à ma meilleure amie ------ Il va lui faire mal

Elle va faire mal à mes parents ---- Elle va leur faire mal

Hope this helps!
