Young love is so fickle. Singer Selena Gomez put her health scare behind her on Monday night (November 19, 2012) to enjoy a dinner with Justin Bieber just hours after seeking medical treatment.
Gomez cut short a recording session on Sunday (November 18, 2012) due to throat problems, but she later supported Bieber, who she was reported to have split from last month, at an American Music Awards afterparty, and the pair was snapped holding hands amid rumors of a romantic reconciliation.
However, Gomez’s symptoms began to worsen on Monday morning and she headed to a medical facility to test for streptococcal pharyngitis (strep throat) and bronchitis.
The star refused to let her ill health affect her social plans and headed to dinner at Japanese restaurant Benihana in Encino, California with a group of pals, which included Bieber.
Gomez held her hand in front of her face as the paparazzi took aim, while Bieber, who arrived in athletic shorts after a workout at an Equinox gym but left in black pants, walked to his car surrounded by an all-male entourage.
