As much as I’m sure Bella Hadid wishes she could get rid of any and all traces of her ex-boyfriend by clicking “unfollow“, there’s a little thing called “going to work” that recently got in the way. Bella is working Paris Fashion Week right now and sadly for her, The Weeknd is too. And they both worked the same show yesterday. Who could have seen that one coming? Certainly not a company who wanted a little extra publicity, that’s for sure.
This is the second time Bella and The Weeknd had to do a fashion show together after breaking up (they crossed dead-eyed paths at the Victoria’s Secret show in November). But it’s the first since The Weeknd caused a middle school meltdown by dating Selena Gomez. Bella walked in and The Weeknd performed at the H&M spring/summer 2017 show yesterday. Oh my god, they had an awkward run-in at H&M? This situation couldn’t get more middle school dramatic if it tried.
It wasn’t really that awkward until Bella had to walk by The Weeknd with her sister Gigi Hadid. But they all got through it. Such bravery!
I’m sure it was no surprise to Bella that The Weeknd was going to be there performing; they probably know that information weeks in advance. So a huge round of applause to Bella for not freaking out and sending a model-bot to walk in her place. At least I don’t think she did. .
