Bella Hadid declares peace with Selena Gomez with one Instagram like
Today everyone in the world sighed with relief, as peace was officially declared between two mortal enemies. No, not Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un, or Kanye West and Taylor Swift, or Marvel Comics and D.C. Comics. They're all enemies for life. I'm talking about Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez. The war is over!
Their feud started eleven months ago (though it's felt like eleven years). Back in January, the paparazzi spotted Selena eating a romantic dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant with a special someone: "Starboy" singer The Weeknd (whose real name is Abel Tesfaye). TMZ reported they were getting "handsy" and "mouthy," making Abelina "definitely a thing."
However, The Weeknd used to be dating Bella Hadid. The couple broke up in November, but the 21-year-old fashion model evidently wasn't over him. Shortly after the Abelina make-out pictures leaked, Bella did one of the nastiest things you could ever do to a human being: unfollow them on Instagram. (The horror, the horror.)
After "the unfollowing," the world suspected there was drama between Bella and Selena. But we didn't know for sure until Bella's mom, Yolanda Hadid, was interviewed on Watch What Happens Live. Andy Cohen - our modern day Walter Cronkite - asked Yolanda if Bella cares that Selena and The Weeknd are dating. She replied, "Not anymore, I think." Implying that she used to care, and Bella was hurt! Drama confirmed.
This could have been the end of Bella and Selena's relationship - a bright sunny day tarnished with black, baleful thunderclouds. But the future brought changes. To quote Arthur Schopenhauer, "To live alone is the fate of all great souls." After ten months of dating, Selena and The Weeknd broke up. It seemed like the split was amicable. But then, the 25-year-old singer unfollowed The Weeknd on Instagram. Wow, Selena. Cold blooded.
After cutting The Weeknd off her calendar, Selena went back to an old flame: Justin Bieber. From 2010 to 2014, the two had an on-again off-again relationship. Now, all of a sudden, they were spotted together going to church, eating breakfast and riding bicycles. You know what means: Jelena is back! The floppy-haired bad boy was her first love, so she decided to give him another chance.
And Selena wasn't the only one getting back with her ex. The paparazzi spotted The Weeknd leaving Bella Hadid's apartment after "spending several hours there!" What were they doing? Talking? Playing Scrabble? Or getting very "handsy" and "mouthy"? We may never know, but remember what Bella said about him in February:
"I'll always respect him, and I'll always love him. 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."
Now that Abella and Jelena are back, could Bella and Selena renew their relationship? Fans have been avidly watching their social media for signs. Now, their vigilance has been rewarded: Bella clicked "like" on an Instagram photo of the newly blond Selena!
Just like that, peace is officially declared between the two starlets, and our long national nightmare has come to an end. Isn't this a great moment? We should get the day off work. Ask your boss.
