Breaking up is hard to do.
Bella may have looked the image of confidence when she strutted past her ex The Weeknd on the Victoria’s Secret runway, but she has admitted that the breakup hit her harder than she let on.
“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 ‘fessed to Teen Vogue. “It’ll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through.”
Elaborating further on her post-split feels, Bella revealed that she and The Weeknd, are still on good terms, despite the incessant rumours that there’s bad blood between the two since he moved on with Selena Gomez.
“I’ll always respect him, and I’ll always love him,” she explained. “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.”
Bella and The Weeknd were dating for around eight months before they called it quits in early November due to clashing work schedules.
With Bella’s modelling career taking off and The Weeknd’s new relationship with Selena blossoming, it’s great to see the two are happily moving on. Onwards and upwards, eh?
