Justin Bieber wants Selena Gomez back and believes their split is just a temporary 'blip.'
And Gomez flew to New York on Saturday with 'tentative plans' to meet her estranged beau ahead of his Brooklyn concert on Monday night.
A source said: 'It's not just over for Justin and Selena, whatever happens they have a lot to talk about.
'Their schedules have been packed but Selena has made tentative plans to see Justin in New York before his Brooklyn concert, she hasn't decided if she'll attend yet, but she's keen to talk... and so is he.
'They're both being a bit cagey and stubborn but they're desperate to see one another.
'This isn't new for them, they often have a tumultuous relationship. We all expect them to work it out.'
Selena was in the city for a promotional visit to K-Mart in White Plains, nicely timed to coincide with Justin.
Further sources close to the Canadian singer have revealed that the 18-year-old is NOT involved with anyone else despite the fact that he stepped out with Hungarian fashion model Barbara Palvin, 19.
The source further explained that Justin feels that he and Selena have broken up before many times and that this split is just another 'blip.'
They added that the pop juggernaut is not 'freaked out' because he believes there's a good chance they'll get back together.
And on Saturday, Justin refused to confirm the split when he phone into a radio show. He said: 'I don't know what to say,' he said in an interview with Open House Party.
'I don't know what's going on in my life. To even assess that it doesn't make sense 'cause I have not made any comment.'
But he did chose to play a cover version of the song Justin Timberlake wrote after his split from Britney Spears, Cry Me A River, just a day after the 'news' broke.
The split came after Justin was apparently seen 'chatting up' models backstage at the Victoria's Secret show on Wednesday. The Canadian singer was seen taking Palvin to see The Lion King on Broadway.
