Sources tell E! News exclusively that the 22-year-old singer had planned to surprise his former girlfriend after she attended his Los Angeles Purpose World Tour concert on Wednesday.

However, things didn't go as planned and Bieber ended up "calling it off."

Image
Talk about the ultimate surprise!

When Amy Schumer and boyfriend Ben Hanisch decided to see Hamilton on Broadway Saturday night, many fans would assume they simply wanted to savor an amazing show. But while enjoying a date night with a few mutual friends, Amy decided to surprise a few lucky bartenders with one generous donation.

According to employee Madeleine DeJohn, the comedian ordered a few drinks for her group. But along the way, she also left quite the tip to a grateful staff.

"Our house manager gave us her order before the show and we filled it," Madeleine shared with E! News. "Then at intermission, a member of her party came to the bar with another order and when he handed the receipt to my co-worker, he said ‘Amy wants to make sure you get this.' My co-worker looked at it and didn't know what to say."

She added, "We've served a lot of celebrities at Hamilton and we've received some nice tips but never before had I seen a tip that even…
