Let the speculation begin. The Weeknd and Bella Hadid are reportedly “hanging out again.”
Just weeks after he split with Selena Gomez, the Toronto singer was spotted leaving Hadid’s NYC apartment Tuesday night. Sources told E! News that the former couple has been spending a lot of time together, but they haven’t rushed to make things official.
“Bella and Abel have been in contact since Abel and Selena split, but they are not back together,” the insider explained. “Abel reached out to Bella asking to hang out and catch up, and she decided to see him and see where things go. She knows that if they don't date again, they can at least be good friends.”
A source said the Weeknd—who dated Hadid for a year up until 2016— has apologized to his ex for his past mistakes. He reportedly told the model he still has feelings for her; however, Hadid is being cautious.
“She still loves him but has her guard up. She never really got over him," the source said. “She is not looking to be exclusive with him now, just to be his friend. His schedule won't allow him to stay focused on her—she knows this from past experience. She also knows he is talking to a few girls still. She reads what is put out in the news and that affects her […] She is stronger this time around. She would give Abel another try, maybe down the road, but is taking small steps before she jumps back into a relationship.”
The news arrives as Selena and Justin Bieber spark another round of dating rumors. The two have been frequently photographed together within the last month, and were recently spotted swapping spit at a hockey rink. Perhaps the Weeknd is taking a cue from Selena and trying to rebound with an old flame.
