Bella Hadid, 23, and The Weeknd, 30, have dated on and off since 2015. Their most recent split was in August 2019.
“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,” a source told E! News at a time.
But that was over nine months ago. Now, it looks like the two might be ready to rekindle their romance.
A source recently told Us Weekly, Hadid and The Weeknd are communicating again.
“Bella and The Weeknd have been in touch recently,” the insider revealed.
And while the two could just be friends, there was always the chance they’d reconcile.
“She [Bella] still has feelings for The Weeknd and there’s always a possibility that they will get back together down the line, but for right now, she’s single,” a source told the outlet following their split.
“They still have a great deal of love and respect for each other and will remain friends,” the source added.
Hadid and The Weeknd were first linked in 2015 after they were spotted together at Coachella.
During a 2015 interview with Rolling Stone, the singer revealed the two first met after Hadid declined to be on the artwork for his album.
“My motive was literally to work with her,” he said. But when Hadid didn’t agree, “I was like, ‘All right, cool—we can meet up face-to-face.’”
The couple was photographed together several times in 2015. Hadid even appeared in The Weeknd’s music video for “In the Night.”
It was rumored the two split up at the end of that year. But by February, they were very much a couple again. So if they did break up, it didn’t last long.
In May 2016, Hadid and The Weeknd attended the Met Gala together. But in November, it was reported they’d broken up due to hectic schedules.
“Their schedules have been too hard to coordinate and he is focusing on finishing and promoting his album,” a source told People.
In January 2017, The Weeknd began a relationship with Selena Gomez. The two broke up in October, after dating for almost a year.
Shortly after their split, The Weeknd was spotted leaving Hadid’s apartment; prompting speculation they were back together.
Neither Hadid or The Weeknd confirmed their reunion until April 2018. A source told E! News, they are “exclusively dating and are in a great place.”
It was rumored their relationship became very serious, with the two even moving in together. But by August 2019, it was reported they’d broken up again.
