Selena Gomez ''hates'' being known as Justin Bieber's girlfriend.

The 22-year-old singer - who dated the 'As Long As You Love Me' hitmaker on and off for the past three years - is reportedly fed up of people linking her to the 20-year-old pop star.

A source explained: ''Hearing that she is with Justin and should be with Justin or shouldn't be with Justin is exhausting.

''She always reads about herself and Google's herself and she hates being known as Justin's girlfriend or not his girlfriend.

''She wants to be known in her eyes and to others as Selena Gomez.''

The 'Come And Get It' hitmaker - who is currently enjoying a holiday with models, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid - is struggling with the public split from her ex and is getting support from her family.

A source added to ''During the holidays and New Year's she wants and plans to keep it simple and with the ones she loves and that is family. Family is more important then Justin right now!''

Selena celebrated Christmas with her relatives in her hometown of Dallas, Texas and was initially worried the break up would ruin her festive downtime.

A source said previously: ''Selena's planning to be in Texas with her family for Christmas, but she's very worried that she won't be able to enjoy herself because she's so upset over Justin.

''She's having a lot of anxiety. Knowing that Justin is spending all his time with Hailey [Baldwin] is eating her up.''
