If rumors are to be believed, Bella Hadid and the Weeknd recently spilt up. But with the model walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and the performer singing a medley of hits from his new album during the event, their inevitable encounter was either bound to be incredibly awkward — or to put the breakup gossip to rest.

On Wednesday at the Grand Palais in Paris, the singer, belting out his single “Starboy” on the runway, paid particular attention to the 20-year-old as she walked by in a lingerie set and long chiffon train.


The Weeknd, whose real name is Abél Tesfaye, and Hadid were reportedly together for nearly two years. While they kept their relationship mostly private, they did walk the red carpet together at the Met Gala in May and occasionally shared selfies and pictures together on social media.


According to Us Weekly, the pair split because of their demanding careers. “They still have a great deal of love and respect for each other and will remain friends, but it has been too hard to coordinate their schedules with him finishing and promoting his upcoming album,” a source close to the Grammy winner told Us at the time. “They really tried to make it work.”
