Awards bosses change Bieber's seat after Gomex break-up
Justin Bieber will be sitting with Taylor Swift at the American Music Awards on Sunday.
The ‘Beauty And A Beat’ hitmaker was due to be seated beside Selena Gomez at the awards ceremony in Los Angeles but after the couple announced their split last week, a number of changes have been made.
Taylor – who is one of Selena’s best friends – will now sit near Justin with the 18-year-old singer’s friend and mentor Usher and ‘American Idol’winner Carrie Underwood on the other side of him, according to E! News.
Meanwhile, Selena’s friends reportedly hope her romance with Justin is over for good as she has "shed many tears" over him in the past year.
A friend of Selena's said: "It's been so difficult to watch this unfold over the past year or so. Selena has shed so many tears over Justin.
"She's tried to split up with him so many times but they have always ended up back together.
"It's out in the open now and that is one of the toughest parts, so that means there's more chance it will be permanent this time. But we expect Justin to try to win her back - and he tends to get what he wants."
