Singer Selena Gomez put her health scare behind her on Monday night (19Nov12) to enjoy a dinner with Justin Bieber just hours after seeking medical treatment.

The Who Says hitmaker cut short a recording session on Sunday (18Nov12) due to throat problems, but she later supported Bieber - who she was reported to have split from last month (Oct12) - at an American Music Awards afterparty, and the pair was snapped holding hands amid rumours 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, according to E! Online.
