AceShowbiz - Does %cThe Weeknd% still have feelings for %cBella Hadid%? If a new report from HollywoodLife.com is to be trusted, the 27-year-old Canadian singer is trying to reconnect with the 21-year-old Victoria's Secret model, now that things have ended between him and singer %cSelena Gomez%.
The webloid alleges The Weeknd, born Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, is trying very hard to "see and talk" to Bella, whom he dated for nearly two years before Selena. Citing a so-called source, the gossip site says that "The Weeknd's been trying to fix things with Bella."
It's "not necessarily to date her," though, as "his priority right now is just rebuilding their friendship," the insider claims. "He's been reaching out to her, he's even asked some of their mutual friends to get her to talk to him," the source continues. "He's on a break from his tour right now, and he's hoping to see her."
The Weeknd and Bella "have so many friends in common, it would just be easier if they could be on good terms again," the source admits, before alleging that the "Starboy" hitmaker "still thinks she's hot so he could just be playing the friend card to try and get her back."
The two started dating at the beginning of 2015. They were seen together for the first time in April at Coachella, before making their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2016 Grammy Awards in February. They split in November that year allegedly due to their conflicting schedules.
The Weeknd then started dating Selena allegedly earlier this year, in January. The "I Feel It Coming" singer and the 25-year-old songstress moved in together temporarily in September in Greenwich Village, New York. They broke up the next month after the "Wolves" singer reconnected with her ex %cJustin Bieber%, whom she dated on and off from 2010 until 2014.
