London - Selena Gomez will not be attending the American Music Awards because her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber is performing.

Justin is set to perform at the ceremony on Sunday (18.11.12), and Selena is not going to make an appearance at the prestigious event in Los Angeles because the pain of their recent split is just too fresh.

A representative told "Selena has never been confirmed to be at the show."

She is also not nominated for any prizes at the ceremony, unlike Justin who is up for three awards, including the highly coveted Artist of the Year accolade.

Selena and Justin were believed to have held crisis talks last weekend to discuss where their relationship was going after their split was confirmed last week.

A source said: "I saw Selena go into the hotel around 5:40 pm and not even three hours later, Justin went in. I saw him leave around 11 pm.

"It's not just over for Justin and Selena, whatever happens they have a lot to talk about.

"They're both being a bit cagey and stubborn but they're desperate to see one another. This isn't new for them; they often have a tumultuous relationship. We all expect them to work it out." - Bang Showbiz
