Better than revenge? Bella Hadid walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show during ex-boyfriend The Weeknd’s performance on Wednesday, November 30. The amicable exes joined forces as they strutted their stuff down the glittered catwalk at the Grand Palais in Paris.
In videos posted to Twitter, the “Starboy” singer (whose real name is Abel Tesfaye) can be seen eyeing the leggy model, who walked in the iconic show for the first time on Wednesday.

The fashion show is the exes’ first public appearance since they called it quits after almost two years together earlier this month. Sources told Us Weekly their schedules were to blame for the split.

“They still have a great deal of love and respect for each other and will remain friends, but it has been too hard to coordinate their schedules with him finishing and promoting his upcoming album,” a source close to the Grammy winner told Us at the time. “They really tried to make it work.”
Hadid, 20, and The Weeknd, 26, met when the Grammy winner asked the Nike model to pose for the artwork for his breakthrough album Beauty Behind the Madness back in April 2015. Hadid also starred in the music video for The Weeknd’s “In the Night.”
“My motive was literally to work with her,” The Weeknd later told Rolling Stone of how they first connected.
