There was a lot of speculation leading up to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and much of it had to do with a certain former couple expected to share the stage together. (SLIDESHOW: The Sexiest Looks From The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show)
Bella Hadid and singer The Weeknd used to be a hot item, but the two broke up just a few weeks before they were expected to take the runway together in Paris. Many people thought the plans for the show might change due to their split, but the show went on and The Weeknd was forced to watch his ex strut her stuff in the middle of his own performance.
Bella was not phased by the scheduling and claimed there’s no “awkwardness” between her and The Weeknd. “He is my best friend, and I am excited because I am walking during his performance,” Bella told E! News before the show. (PHOTOS: The Hadid Sisters Absolutely Rocked The Victoria’s Secret Runway)
This was Bella’s first year walking in the world-famous lingerie brand’s annual event, but her ex has been there before. “This is his second year performing, and I think he’s going to kill it,” she predicted.

As for Hadid, she didn’t do too bad herself — especially for a first-timer. She strutted past her ex-boyfriend with a sexy scowl on her face, but promised she was smiling on the inside in an Instagram post the day after the show.
“I was smiling SO HUGE on the inside I promise!!!!” Hadid said in the post. She also thanked The Weeknd “for being the best and most incredible performer on the planet.”
According to E!, the “Starboy” singer sent something special to Bella’s room “to wish her luck on her big day.” A source claimed the two “are on great terms” and although they aren’t together, they are still in love.
“This is not the end,” a source close to the couple told E!. “They know they needed to officially break things off for a while,” but apparently “getting back together is possible in the future.”
It seems like The Weeknd sure hopes so. And who could blame him — she’s one of the hottest models in the world right now.
