Singer, The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, has rekindled his romance with Bella Hadid. The two had an 18-month-long romance that ended in 2016, and it didn't take long for The Weeknd to be spotted with Selena Gomez. He dated Gomez for 10 months and then eOnline reported that they broke up in October 2017. Part of the reason for their breakup was that Selena had serious health issues and had to have a kidney transplant. Also, Selena did not like being separated from The Weeknd so much when he went on his world tour. Things were pretty much over between the two after Gomez was spotted with her old flame, Justin Bieber.
Selena and Justin were captured in photographs by paparazzi seemingly having a wonderful time together once again. The Weeknd was devastated by the breakup and even wrote a song about it, called "Wasted Times," which has lyrics that lament his time away from Bella that he wasted with Selena, singing “Wasted times I spent with someone else. She wasn’t even half of you.” In response to this, Gomez offered an apology on social media. Nevertheless, it was clear that The Weeknd wanted a second chance with Hadid.
Hollywood Life said that Bella came back to be with The Weeknd, starting with a date where they went to the Coachella Festival together and Bella watched the Weeknd perform from backstage. Then, most recently the two were hanging out at Cannes together. The two attended the screening of the film Ash is the Purest White together dressed up for the black-tie event. The Weeknd wore a tuxedo while Hadid wore champagne-colored custom-made strapless Dior gown and a stunning Bulgari diamond necklace with matching wristbands.
At first, The Weeknd tried to play down the relationship with his ex, saying on social media that he was just hanging out at Cannes to watch some movies. However, soon thereafter, the couple was spotted watching movies together. They were not shy about showing affection for each other. They looked as if they were in deep conversations at times. At other times, they were all about kisses and hugs, not caring who was observing them. They seemed to once again be inseparable. Maybe the relationship will work out better this time around.
