AceShowbiz - Bella Hadid and The Weeknd might cozy up to each other and all during their reunion at the Cannes Film Festival. However, it's reported that the rumored reunited couple had a big fight over the Canadian singer's ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez prior to that.
Bella allegedly threatened the "Starboy" hitmaker to delete all evidence of the former Disney darling on his phone, otherwise she refused to get back with him. "Bella found some sexy shots of Selena and was furious," a source reveals to OK! magazine (via HollywoodLife.com).
"Abel said it was just part of his past, but she accused him of wanting Selena back. After a huge fight, he caved and deleted every pic," the source continues.
The fight occurred right before they were caught packing on the PDA at the festival that took place in the South of France earlier this month. The singer and the Victoria's Secret model, who were among the guests at the beach-front Magnum x Alexander Wang bash, were seen talking very closely with their arms around each other. Another video even showed them looking very relaxed in each other's company while engaging themselves in a deep conversation.
The pair, who began dating in 2015 before splitting in the fall of 2016, further fueled the reconciliation rumors after spotted together at a screening for "Ash Is Purest White" on Friday evening, May 11. "They were whispering and holding hands while talking," said another source, who believed that there "was no doubt they were together." The source added, "People were coming over to say hello, but they were focused on each other and never got too far away from one another."
While The Weekend, born Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, stays mum on the rumor, the younger Bella sister has broken her silence on the matter. Despite the photos and videos of her and The Weeknd getting cozy circulating online, Bella insisted that "it wasn't me."
