Despite speculation they'd split, it seems Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's relationship is back on.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez quash split rumours as they're spotted holding hands

The couple dispelled any rumours their relationship was over when they were pictured together at LA's Marriott Hotel after the American Music Awards on Sunday night.

The young lovers were later seen holding hands outside Bootsy Bellows nightclub, and the following morning Justin left Selena's home wearing the same clothes as the night before.

Though the pair attempted to keep a low profile, hiding their arrival at the club under an umbrella and surrounded by security guards, there was no escaping the hordes of paparazzi.

Former Playboy model Jenny McCarthy, who'd grabbed Justin for an on-stage smooch at the awards show earlier that evening, also confirmed the young stars were together.

The 40-year-old tweeted: "My cub @justinbeiber brought his acceptable and beautifully aged beauty Selena to the AMA after party. Guess I’m back on the prowl. Rww!"

For unknown reasons, Selena had been a no-show at the American Music Awards, where Justin, 18, won Artist Of The Year, Favourite Pop/Rock Male Artist and Best Pop Album.

Instead, the Canadian singer had taken mom Pattie Mallette along to the show, following weeks of rumours of a "bust-up" with Selena.

The 20-year-old former Disney star is said to have called off the relationship, reportedly leaving Justin devastated and begging her to give things another go.

Selena is said to have been upset after Justin reportedly grew close to Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin, even cryptically posting a photo of the pair together at a party on Twitter with the caption "....".

Justin and Selena then went for a make or break dinner at an exclusive Beverly Hills hotel on Friday, but they weren't there for long before leaving in separate cars.

Justin was later snapped outside Selena's house after she reportedly refused to let him in - though she eventually relented so he could escape the hordes of paparazzi gathering outside.

But it seems the pair have survived the recent tumultuous weeks and are officially back on.

Phew.
