Bella Hadid and The Weeknd have confirmed they retraced their old loving ways following their growing affection for each other.
The top model and her singer-boyfriend were pictured on a dinner date, a first intimate outing since their November 2016 separation. Although the lovebirds dated for 18 months before going separate ways, they stirred rumours of a possible come-back after sharing kisses during Cannes Film Festival and Coachella.
While the couple were apart, Hadid claimed she focused on herself and career. However, the “Starboy” crooner fell in and out of love with pop singer Selena Gomez within a period of 10 months.
The Weeknd, 28, and his old flame officially confirmed their reunion before jetting to the City of Love – Paris – for a memorable reunion. Ahead of the expected amorous weekend, Hadid, 21, was sighted near her lover on Thursday and the pair have been all over each other.
Probably discussing their recent lip-locking acts, The Weekend was pictured with his hand encircling the model’s shoulder while both, including their guards, shared lots of laugh on the streets of Paris.

A source close to the catwalk queen revealed to Mail Online that Hadid and her previously lost lover had eyes for each other in the VIP area of the party [Cannes].
‘They were both partying with their closest friends and The Weeknd looked very much “part of the family,”’ said the tipster.
‘Bella kept coming over and whispering in his ear and kissing his neck.’
The onlooker confirmed their affection wasn’t a secret, adding that it increased in energy while they hung out on the beach in front of hundreds of people.
‘Bella obviously asked him to leave with her to an unknown destination before they disappeared at the same time. They looked very cute…Recent events show they’re definitely back in love.’
Bella unequivocally expressed her devastation after leaving The Weekend, also claiming her purpose after their split was to focus on her career with no plan of falling in love again.
‘I’m focused on myself,’ she told Grazia magazine earlier in May. ‘It’s like I’m finally getting to the point where I can just think about what I want to do and the places I want to go…I want to be as independent as possible and worry about myself rather than anyone else.’
