Bella Hadid and The Weeknd have gone their separate ways. The couple dated for quite a long time, though on and off.
After a year and a half of being in a relationship, the Victoria’s Secret model and the Canadian crooner broke up in 2016. They started seeing each other once again, several months later. However, it wasn’t until July last year that they rekindled their romance publicly.
Now they are no more together, and you can blame “distance” for that. A source has revealed to E! News that these two have different priorities right now as they are focusing on their careers. Their traveling schedules aren’t aligning, and they haven’t seen one another for quite a while.
“They are in different places right now, physically and mentally. Bella is prepping for her fashion week commitments, and Abel is working on his music and his upcoming acting debut,” the insider reported. Surprisingly though, a whole lot of Hadid’s fans are glad that she is no more dating Abel Tesfaye.
When Just Jared announced the news of their breakup on Instagram, one person commented, “I don’t like him she deserves someone better than this guy.” Another Instagrammer wrote, “I can’t believe she stayed with him so long… seriously how did she keep a straight face looking at that hair do?”
Yet another person typed, “Bella can have any man she wants is better for her to be without him.” Many comments also showed that people were unaware that they were still together or got back together at some point. After all, the Earned It singer, and 22-year-old model did keep their dating pretty private this time around. An equal number of people think that chances that The Weeknd would get back with Selena Gomez, whom he dated for 10 months, are thick.
Signs that Bella and Abel were no more an item were there already, so the news of their breakup isn’t shocking either. Even though their relationship seemed to be going so smoothly that it was thought they were about to get engaged! Then again, The Weeknd recently took his Instagram down, and Bella hasn’t posted any proof of them dating for months now. The last pictures she posted of both of them were in February and March.
However, the source did mention that it’s entirely possible that these two will get back together in the future. “They hope to get back together at one point but for now are focusing on themselves and their projects,” said the source.
What are your thoughts on their breakup? Are you rooting for them to get back? Or do you think this is a final breakup that was destined to happen and is better for them both?
