UPDATE (2/13): In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Bella Hadid opened up for the first time about her split with The Weeknd. She admitted that it was a lot harder than it looked, and wow are her feelings relatable.
"It was my first breakup...and so public," she said. "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. It'll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through."
Ugh. Our hearts. And what's even better is that even in the midst of The Weeknd and Selena Gomez's new relationship, Hadid remains kind.

Bella Hadid and The Weeknd split in November because they found it difficult to coordinate their busy schedules. However, they were both in Paris this week for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which was taped on Wednesday.

Bella made her VS debut in a sexy gray ensemble, and she smiled at her ex-boyfriend as he crooned his hit single, "Starboy." While many of the performers at the VS Fashion Show have interacted with the models, it was easy to see that there was something else going on here.
