Bella Hadid reportedly stayed close to her ex-boyfriend The Weeknd after the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Bella stormed the runway in her debut show for the lingerie giant, and was joined by the likes of Kendall Jenner, Jasmine Tookes and her sister Gigi Hadid for the Paris presentation last month (Nov16).
The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga all provided the entertainment, which meant Bella had to walk past her former beau on the catwalk. And apparently she got close to him at the after-party too.
“Bella and The Weeknd were all anyone could talk about at Victoria’ Secret,” an insider told Grazia.
“At the after-party, Bella stayed close to Abel despite the fact that her sister Gigi and Kendall Jenner passed through as fast as they could after having their picture taken.
“Bella made a beeline for The Weeknd’s VIP booth with her mom Yolanda, and both of them stopped to chat to him. But while Bella seemed keen to catch up he was quick to return to his entourage and leave her with her mother.”
Model Bella, 20, and her 26-year-old ex split up in early November after almost two years together. On the flight over to Paris before the fashion show, Bella was caught looking at a photo of the pair sharing a kiss, when fellow model Kelly Gale uploaded a snap of the Victoria’s Secret girls on the plane.
Talking to Grazia backstage, Bella admitted: “I just want to find happiness in my personal life.”
And it seems that may involve getting back with her former flame.
“After Abel left Bella at the party, she and Yolanda made a pretty quick exit,” the source continued. “The whole encounter appeared awkward, and she seems to be reluctant to leave. They insist everything has ended with them being best friends, but it didn’t seem that way. It seems like Bella isn’t ready to move on.”
