We were shocked to find out Justin Bieber, 20, skipped Selena Gomez‘s American Music Awards performance on Nov. 23. Instead, he was spotted grabbing food at a White Castle in New York City. So why did the “Baby” singer purposely miss his 22-year-old ex’s raw, emotional performance at the awards show? HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned the truth.
Justin Bieber On Selena Gomez’s AMAs Performance: Why He Skipped It
“Justin’s team and pastor Carl Lenz convinced him to skip the American Music Awards and spend time at Hillsong Church in New York City instead. He’s been reminded to spread the gospel rather than dwell in the trappings of Hollywood,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
While Justin submerged himself in his gospel studies, and likely chowed down on some juicy White Castle burgers, his ex left Taylor Swift in tears after performing “The Heart Wants What It Wants,” an emotional song about Justin and Selena’s troubled relationship.
