The Weeknd and Bella Hadid Are Reportedly 'Exclusive' Again

Let's go back, back to 2015.

The Weeknd, a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye, and Bella Hadid are back! Though the pair hasn't officially confirmed their relationship status themselves (expect an Instagram or two in the near future), a source from E! reveals (opens in new tab) the couple are "exclusively dating and in a great place."

The source continues, "Abel realized once he started dating around that he actually is still in love with Bella, and they reconnected." Of course, this comes after The Weeknd's breakup from Selena Gomez (opens in new tab) last October when Selena left him for Justin Bieber (opens in new tab).

Bella initially seemed completely unbothered (opens in new tab) by Selena and The Weeknd's breakup, but clearly the exes have missed each other. They were first spotted kissing and hanging out at Coachella (opens in new tab) back in April (though Bella denied they were actually kissing (opens in new tab)), making out in Cannes in May (opens in new tab), and at the beginning of this month they were seen getting cozy at his mansion (opens in new tab) in Hidden Hills, California.

The pair aren't hiding their hangouts either—Bella posted an Instagram story at The Weeknd's pool, and they almost became Instagram official (opens in new tab) the other day after The Weeknd posted Bella on his Instagram story while they visited Tokyo.

Sources also told E! (opens in new tab) a couple months ago that Bella "never really lost feelings for Abel and had hoped they would eventually get back together." So, it looks like it's actually, really happening. Be on the lookout for an official confirmation from Bella or The Weeknd themselves or, you know, an engagement because we apparently do that now after two months of dating (opens in new tab).
