Although she was a no show at the 40th Annual American Music Awards, Selena Gomez made an appearance later in the night – on Justin Bieber‘s arm at an afterparty.

Despite reports of a rocky attempt at reconciliation on Friday, Bieber, 18, and Gomez, 20, were photographed chatting with Pattie Mallette, Bieber’s mother – who accompanied the “Boyfriend” singer to the awards show – at the Marriott Downtown Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday.

With Gomez clutching Bieber’s arm, it looked as if the two were fairly comfortable around each other.

Otherwise, it was a busy night for Bieber, who performed at the awards show and won artist of the year, favorite male artist pop/rock and favorite album.
