Potential run-ins with our exes send us diving behind friends, light posts, mail boxes, moving cars, etc. – anything to avoid seeing them. Bella Hadid is far more mature. Remember when, three weeks after she and the Weeknd broke up, the model walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show while he was singing like it was NBD. She even gave him an friendly shoutout on Insta. See below.
I can’t believe it! ??? I was smiling SO HUGE on the inside I promise!!!! The most fun and nerve racking experience of my life but I wish I could do it over and over and over again!!!!! ??Thank you @theweeknd for being the best and most incredible performer on the planet. You KILLED it, as always ? ❤️ And not enough thank you’s to @ed_razek @10magazine @johndavidpfeiffer @monica.mitro and the whole VS family!!!?????thank you for believing in me I love you all so so so much ????
Now, the model’s opened up about how she really felt. “It was my first breakup — or second, next to the horse [she gave up riding when she was 16] — and so public. As an outsider, you might think I handled it so well, but it’s always in your heart, and you always feel it very heavily,” she told Teen Vogue. “It’ll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through.”
Added the model, “But I’ll always respect him, and I’ll always love him. Sometimes you want to be sad about it or handle it differently, but at the end of the day, you never want to burn a bridge that you’ve fought so hard to build.”
Like we said, way more mature than us.
