After breaking and making up again, Bella Hadid and The Weeknd seem to officially be back together. We felt it coming!
The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, broke up with Hadid nearly two years ago. Since then, he has dated and broken up with Selena Gomez, and released an album called My Dear Melancholy, which most fans thought was a comparison between Gomez and Hadid. Since ending things with Gomez, Hadid and The Weeknd have often been seen together and sources now say the couple have finally become exclusive again.
A source told E! that the couple is “exclusively dating and are in a great place. Abel realized once he started dating around, that he actually is still in love with Bella, and they reconnected.” Bella apparently never lost her feelings for Abel even after their break up, and she was not seen with other guys during the time they were apart. According to sources, she always hoped they would get back together.
The model and singer saw each other in secret over the last few months, after Gomez left The Weeknd to reunite with her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber. They were first seen kissing at Coachella, and according to the source, have since then made sure to spend time with each other every few weeks. The source said, “They haven’t had more than a few weeks apart. Abel flies to wherever Bella is working since he had a gap in his tour, and has been very accommodating. They have been vacationing a lot together as well and spending time together as a couple before he starts performing again.”
The two were seen together in Cannes, Paris and most recently in Tokyo, when The Weeknd landed in hot water for referencing Hadid in a picture on the same day as Gomez’s birthday. They have now made things official once again. The source explained, “Things have been going really well. They have been inseparable and have been truly working with each other’s schedules to make it work.” Working in their favor is the fact that they are both in the same industry, and “they have a lot of the same friends and their lifestyles really work for them. They both love to see new places and have new experiences and definitely share that commonality.”
The source added, “Everyone around them always knew it was a matter of time, and knew the undeniable bond that they had when they were together. They always drifted back in the same places so it was a matter of time before they decided to commit to each other again.”
Since their trip to Tokyo, the couple have returned to New York for work.
