Justin Bieber ditched his family to play arcade games with Selena Gomez.

The 'Boyfriend' singer was expected to attend a family dinner at New York's Philippe restaurant following his sold out gig at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night (28.11.12), but chose to go and spend time with his on/off girlfriend instead.

The couple played arcade games at Dave & Busters in Times Square, while family members, including Justin's grandparents, his sister and 30 friends, dined at the Upper East Side eatery, according to the New York Post newspaper.

Justin, 18, and 20-year-old Selena enjoyed several of the arcade games on offer which included car-racing and shooting, and took a ride together on an indoor rollercoaster.

The pop megastar - who was in town for two sold out concerts on his 'Believe' tour - and the 'Monte Carlo' actress then returned to the Trump SoHo Hotel where they were both rumoured to be staying.

Justin and Selena were rumoured to have split earlier this month, but were spotted kissing and flirting over a romantic dinner at New York's Marble Lane restaurant on Tuesday night (27.11.12).

A source told Us Weekly magazine: ''[They were] giggling, like nothing ever happened, grabbing each other, joking.''
