We are totally looking forward to Selena Gomez making her big comeback after her latest battle with lupus, and we might be getting it soon! HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that she’s considering a return at the AMAs, mainly because ex Justin Bieber won’t be there!
“Selena Gomez is relieved that Justin has tour dates on the night of the AMAs and so she is considering a massive return to the spotlight during the award show. With Justin unlikely to make an appearance at the show there is less stress surrounding the event for Selena,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. The 24-year-old is up for several big awards at the Nov. 20 ceremony, including Favorite Female Artist: Pop/Rock and Artist of the Year, but Justin is nominated in nearly every major category and expected to dominate. If he wins big, he’ll have to be accepting via satellite since Justin will be touring in Italy when the ceremony goes down.
“Even though Selena will always love Justin, it does make things easier for her knowing her ex-boyfriend will likely not be there. She is flattered that she has been nominated and is consulting with her family and doctors about whether or not getting back in front of a crowd and cameras is a healthy decision,” our insider adds.
Selena has been M.I.A. since cancelling the European leg of her world tour Aug. 31, deciding to take the rest of 2016 off to focus on her health and well-being. She’s been staying at a facility in Tennessee while dealing with issues related to lupus, including anxiety, panic attacks and depression, which she cited in her letter to fans telling them she was taking time off.
Sel has completely stayed out of the spotlight since, only being spotted out on lunches with family members or stops to get ice cream near her rehab center, so an appearance at the AMAs would be a major way to step back into her glowing spotlight!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Selena will make a big comeback at the AMAs? Or will she lay low and focus on her health through the end of 2016?
