Bella Hadid Admits She’s ‘Still In Love’ With The Weeknd

Model of the moment Bella Hadid has suffered a highly publicised breakup at the age of just 20.

Yet despite appearing to be okay since the split with singer The Weeknd, she has now opened up in a recent interview with Teen Vogue about just how hard the breakup has been for her.

We saw her strut her stuff during her debut on the Victoria’s Secret catwalk in December of last year, even managing to do it with her ex performing ‘Starboy’ right by her side on the runway.

But while she may have came across as empowered and strong, she’s opened up about the heartbreak she’s experienced.

Appearing in Teen Vogue‘s ‘Love Issue’ this month, the younger Hadid sister admits she is ‘still in love’ with her former boyfriend, who has since gone on to date singer and actress Selena Gomez.

The brunette beauty opened up, saying, ‘when I love somebody, I love them with my whole heart’.

It was my first breakup… and so public. As an outsider, you might think that I handled it so well, but it’s always in your heart, and you always feel it very heavily. It’ll be hard for awhile. Love hurts, but you have to pull through.

Since The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, has moved on with his new girlfriend Gomez, Bella has unfollowed Selena on all social media accounts.

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.

The 20-year-old, who is extremely close with her older sister and fellow model Gigi Hadid, admitted that there is ‘no awkwardness’ between her and the ‘Earned It’ singer.

Bella’s career is still going from strength to strength, with her recently being announced as the new face of luxurious watch brand TAG Heuer.
