    There’s nothing worse than bumping into your ex after finding out that they’re dating someone new – as Bella Hadid found out a year ago, bumping into her former lover, The Weeknd (or Abel Tesfaye) who was dating girlfriend, Selena Gomez, at the time, on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk.

    This weekend however, according to reports, a run-in between Bella Hadid and The Weeknd at Coachella wasn’t nearly as awkward, with the former couple reportedly kissing all night at an after-party during the festival.

    The former couple split in November 2016 after dating for over a year, with The Weeknd going on to date Selena Gomez until October 2017.

    With Selena since rekindling the spark with her ex Justin Bieber, fans got excited this week when it looked like The Weeknd might have done the same – speculating that Bella and The Weeknd might be getting back together.

    ‘It was my first break up – and so public,’ Bella explained in a cover interview with Teen Vogue last year. ‘As an outsider, you might think I handled it so well, but it’s always in your heart, and you always feel it very heavily. It’ll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you pull through.’

    She continued: ‘I’ll always respect him, and I’ll always love him. Sometimes you want to be sad about it or handle it differently, but at the end of the day, you never want to burn a bridge that you’ve fought so hard to build.’

    Are Bella Hadid and The Weeknd building bridges? We’ll have to wait and see.
