Bella Hadid Finally Speaks Out About Her Runway Run-In with The Weeknd
If you've been on the Internet recently, we're sure you've seen plenty of photos from the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in Paris, including that incredible shot of Bella Hadid giving major side-eye (or a loving glance?) to her ex-boyfriend and show performer, The Weeknd. Neither has publicly addressed the much-talked-about moment—until now.
Hadid took to Instagram to thank her glam squad and the Victoria's Secret team for giving her the opportunity to walk in the show, with a special shout-out to none other than The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye.
"I can't believe it! I was smiling SO HUGE on the inside I promise!!!!," she captioned the shot of her walking down the runway with her ex singing in the background. "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."
She finished the message off with more expressions of gratitude. "And not enough thank you's to @ed_razek @10magazine @johndavidpfeiffer @monica.mitro and the whole VS family!!!" she wrote. "Thank you for believing in me. I love you all so so so much."
Let's dissect this, shall we? She obviously still cares very much for her ex-boyfriend, calling him "the best and most incredible performer on the planet." But she didn't stop the compliments there: "You KILLED it, as always," she wrote alongside a heart-eyes emoji as well as a classic heart one. Plus that sign-off—"I love you all so so so much"—totally includes her ex. Our hearts be still!

Hadid and The Weeknd may be broken up for now, but we're hoping they give their relationship another shot once their schedules calm down, which they cited as the reason for their separation in the first place. The duo are serious #couplegoals, even when they're not a couple.
