Dating is hard these days. Aside from the fact that guys reckon these are the things women will 'never understand' about them, social media is playing a bigger role in our lives than ever before. You probably already know more about your exes new girlfriend than he does.

So when Selena Gomez and The Weeknd (or Abel Tesfaye to his mates) went public with their relationship back in January, all eyes were on the new couple and their Instagram feeds. And, of course, on everything that Bella Hadid was doing, because it was unfolding like a real life episode of EastEnders before our very eyes, just with more pouty selfies and fewer market stall bandeau tops.

The Weeknd and Bella only broke up a couple of months ago! Selena is supposed to be in Bella's squad! Bella's mate Hailey Baldwin is making a dig at Selena and Abel by posting weird videos of herself in the bath!

It all got a bit strange as Bella swiftly unfollowed Selena on Instagram and posted a video of her slapping her own behind. But what did Selena and Abel do?

Nothing. Until now.

In the most 2017 way to ghost someone, the couple have unfollowed Bella on Instagram. Oooh yes. It's almost like they read our explanation on zombieing and decided to go ahead and give it a go.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted it just weeks after The Weeknd released the music video for I Feel It Coming, which features a lady who looks VERY much like Bella.
