I’d probably have done a greater service to everyone reading if I had written the headline: Bella Hadid and The Weeknd Reminded Everyone They Were Still Dating By Breaking Up. Because Bella Hadid’s relationship with The Weeknd was one of those celebrity relationships that truly took a backseat to other, more pressing celebrity relationship news. Like Lindsay Lohan and her alleged new “friend“, or…well, literally anyone. I don’t know if there was anyone with their finger on the pulse of Bella and The Weeknd, but if there was, they probably noticed there hasn’t been any movement in a while.
A source has told E! News that Bella and The Weeknd decided to call it quits after a little over a year since getting back together. E!’s source says that Bella and The Weeknd were just in different places. Literally, they couldn’t seem to be in the same place at the same time. But also, metaphorically, like in different places in life.
“Bella and Abel have split. 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. [They] haven’t spent quality time together in months.”
Bella and The Weeknd got together in 2015, but broke up in 2016 because of – you guessed it – their schedules. Then The Weeknd started dating Selena Gomez, then they broke up, and then Bella started flirting with Drake. Eventually Bella ran back to The Weeknd.
But now – to quote Bella herself – homeboy can no longer, like, get it. At least for now. The source claims that they might get back together in the future, but right now they have to focus on themselves and their careers.
Bella and The Weeknd seem to split their time between Los Angeles and New York. They’re both rich, so you’d think they could easily get their assistants on some kind of a Google doc to figure out a date night. But E!’s source says that they just couldn’t work out their schedules in a way that served their relationship. And when you can’t be in the same city, you’re kind of only left with sexting. Both Bella and The Weeknd are basically bored humanoid quaaludes, so I can only imagine that there wasn’t much relationship-saving excitement there either.
