Both People and Page Six are saying that the dead-eyed love affair of our time is over. Auxiliary Hadid sister Bella Hadid and the guy who sounds like what a Michael Mann movie feels like The Weeknd have called it quits after a year and a half together. A source tells People the broke up because they were both too busy to be together.
“Their schedules have been too hard to coordinate and he is focusing on finishing and promoting his album. They still have a great deal of love for one another and will remain friends.”
A source tells Page Six that The Weeknd has already been leading that single life and is “chatting up girls.” No word on what the conversations have been like, but my guess is the words “no, there’s no third E” have been said a lot. Page Six adds that Bella and The Weeknd (which totally sounds like an 80s new wave group from Italy) started the slow crawl to splitsville back in September.
The bad thing about Bella and The Weeknd breaking up is that it was probably really hard for them to read each other’s feelings during the whole thing.
The Weeknd (monotone The Weeknd voice): “I am just so crushed by this.”
Bella Hadid: “Can you not tell by the look on my face that I am too?”
The Weeknd: “Honestly?…not really.“
Here’s a newly-single Bella Hadid in Beverly Hills yesterday .
