It looks like former sweethearts Selena Gomez and her ex, Justin Bieber are fighting again… This time, however, it is not for love. According to several sources, the two are competing against each other for the prized Artist of the Year title at the American Music Awards.
Despite currently being treated for Lupus at a rehabilitation center in Tennessee, sources claim Selena is interested in competing against her ex and other artists for the said title.
However, some are arguing that the singer most probably would not even be attending because of her illness.
Selena Gomez on Rehab
In August this year, the singer announced to her fans that she has Lupus. Following that, she cancelled her Revival World Tour to focus on getting better.
Since then, she has become quite low profile and has not been seen in public since recently. In addition, the singer has stopped focusing on her music.
While she has said that her illness is cured, common side effects including anxiety and depression remain. Right now, apart from Lupus, she is also battling these things.
On the other hand, her ex Justin Bieber is also busy in Europe for his Purpose World Tour.
Selena Gomez – Justin Bieber Feud At the AMAs
Both Selena and Justin have yet to confirm their attendance in the awarding. However, the Daily Mail suggests that Selena will in fact, be in attendance and might even do a performance.
“She wants her first appearance back in front of her fans to be special and so if she does decide to do the appearance at the [American Music Awards], she will want to do it big with perhaps a dazzling performance or a major announcement,”shared a Hollywood Life source.
In addition, the source shared that Selena is excited to perform again because her ex will not be there to mess things up for her. “Selena Gomez is relieved that Justin has tour dates on the night of the AMAs… With Justin unlikely to make an appearance at the show there is less stress surrounding the event for Selena. Even though Selena will always love Justin, it does make things easier for her knowing her ex-boyfriend will likely not be there.”
Competing in the same category are Ariana Grande, Rihanna, and Carrie Underwood. The American Music Awards will be hosted by Gigi Hadid and Jay Pharoah on November 20.
