It's natural to dread the first run in-with an ex-partner. It is not natural, however, for that encounter to take place on the Victoria's Secret runway in Paris, France, where you are wearing expensive lingerie, angel wings, and your ex-boyfriend is paid to serenade you.
Such is the too-good-to-be-true relationship between 20-year-old supermodel Bella Hadid and 26-year-old musical artist Abél Tesfaye, who goes by The Weeknd. The two first started dating a year and a half ago in April 2015, shortly after he asked her to be in the artwork for his album, Beauty Behind the Madness. Early in November, their breakup was speculated, conflicting busy schedules being sited as possible reason for the split.
On Monday, however, while on the plane to Paris, a fellow Victoria's Secret model posted on Snapchat a photo featuring someone — presumably Hadid — looking at an old photo of Hadid and The Weeknd locking lips. This, of course, led many to believe that either she wasn't over him yet, or that there wasn't anything to be over in the first place.
Judging by their interaction on the Victoria's Secret runway Wednesday night, either Hadid had the ultimate revenge — she's never looked better — or, their's still a spark between the two of them. After the show, The Weeknd made a gentlemanly move at the end of his performance by kissing Hadid's mother, Yolanda Hadid, on both cheeks and giving her father a firm handshake. It's also rumored that at the after-party, the two looked quite friendly with one another, sharing cocktails and cozying up like old petit amis.
