Justin Bieber wants to "surprise" Selena Gomez.
The 'As Long As You Love Me' hitmaker - who has dated the 22-year-old singer on-and-off since 2010 - is keen to show up to the American Music Awards on Sunday to see his ex-girlfriend, despite his friends thinking it's a bad idea.
A source revealed: "He came back to LA because he wants to see Selena.
"He's even talking about showing up at the AMA's to see her. No one on his team thinks that's a good idea but Justin's going to do what he wants to do."
The 20-year-old singer is believed to be "struggling" following his split from the 'Come And Get It' hitmaker.
The source continued to HollywoodLife.com: "He really wants to be with Selena, he feels like that's the only thing that will make him happy. He's struggling big time.
"He's got his friends trying to talk to her, he just wants to see her face to face because he's convinced that if she sees him they can work it out. But so far she's shutting him out completely."
Another insider recently revealed that Justin was feeling "heartbroken and depressed" because of his separation from Selena.
They previously explained: "Justin has been really depressed. Nothing he's doing so far to get Selena back is working and it's put him in a really dark place.
"He went to New York for a change of scene to try and find new perspective; he's hoping Selena will come and meet up with him."
