But what does it all mean?

The whole world was talking about former couple Bella Hadid and The Weeknd last month, after reports emerged that the two were seen kissing all night at a Coachella after-party.

The ex couple split in November 2016 after dating for over a year, with The Weeknd (or Abel Tesfaye) going on to date Selena Gomez until October 2017.

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

21-year-old Bella however was quick to quash the rumours, releasing the simple statement to her social media, ‘It wasn’t me.’

Fans’ disappointment turned to confusion this week however as the two were photographed kissing at Cannes Film Festival.

The former couple reportedly arrived separately to the Magnum x Alexander Wang party last night, seen greeting each other amicably with a kiss and a hug.

Later however, the couple were photographed kissing at the event, with Bella stroking his face.

‘I’ll always respect him, and I’ll always love him,’ Bella explained to Teen Vogue last year. ‘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.
