Last year, The Weeknd and Selena Gomez were the couple of Coachella. The year before that, he was there with Bella Hadid. This year, The Weeknd's Coachella story includes both Bella and Selena but this time with 100% more gossip!
On Friday night, The Weeknd performed a set at the festival that included his most melancholic song off of My Dear Melancholy, the Selena Gomez-inspired track Call Out My Name - and Abel got emotional. Abel got really emotional. ELLE reports that he could barely make it through some of the lyrics without breaking down.
The line that got The Weeknd the most choked up was, "And when times were rough, when times were rough/I made sure I held you close to me.
As we know, My Dear Melancholy includes many references to The Weeknd’s breakup with Selena Gomez. Abel is really leaning into his scorned lover narrative. Now we know that he not only wrote an angsty album out of heartbreak, the feelings are so fresh that he’s still crying over the breakup. The crying alone could have been The Weeknd’s biggest headline-grabbing moment of Coachella. It would have been enough to bring back up the Selena/Abel/Justin love triangle considering Justin Bieber was also at Coachella, probably steps away from where Abel was singing his heart out about their mutual ex.
But THEN, The Weeknd was spotted with model Chantel Jeffries. and JB were allegedly dealing back in 2014. Here are The Weeknd and Chantel looking cozy at Coachella.
Those pics are from Saturday, the day after The Weeknd’s emo performance. Maybe Abel isn’t still hung up on Selena Gomez. Maybe he was just trying to put on a good show and his emotion was part of the act. But it’s still not a good look. Of course, this love square (Selena, Justin, Chantel, Abel) is actually a love pentagon. Enter: Bella Hadid.
As I mentioned earlier, Bella was at Coachella. According to reports, she watched The Weeknd’s set on Friday and they hit up an after party together on Friday night. PEOPLE says that they were “all over each other.”
“The Weeknd and Bella were sitting on each other’s laps and all over each other all night long… They definitely looked like they were fully back together.”
A source told E! News that they were “kissing all night.” So, they were being blatant about it. There have been rumours that Bella and Abel were back on since shortly after he broke up with Selena so this isn’t all that surprising. What is surprising is that the next day, The Weeknd was walking through Coachella with his arms around Chantel Jeffries. Sure, they could just be friends. Or Bella and Abel could have just had a one-night hookup and in the morning, Abel was free to do whatever he wanted with whomever he wanted. We all know those exes. The ones who can't be in the same room without gravitating towards each other and doing what we all know they shouldn't be doing.
There are reports that Bella and Abel are officially back together. That's not what it looks like to me but IF they are, how do you think Bella feels about The Weeknd crying over Selena Gomez one day and hanging off another girl the next?
