Bella Hadid FINALLY opens up about her split with The Weeknd

Bella Hadid and The Weeknd were one of the cutest celebrity couples, and after they split they had to endure the most awkward of encounters on the Victoria's Secret runway.

The pair have kept tight lipped about their break up, and in the two months since the split, The Weeknd has very publicly began dating fellow musician Selena Gomez.

Bella, who seemed to be handling the split very well, has finally decided to speak up about her feelings in the aftermath of the break up.

The model admits that it wasn't as easy to deal with as it may have seemed to the public. 

"It was my first breakup—or second, next to the horse—and so public. 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," the model told Teen Vogue.

"It'll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through," said the striking beauty, who recently deleted Selena Gomez on Instagram after pictures of her and The Weeknd were released. 

"I'll always respect him, and I'll always love him," she said.

"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."

We think Bella has handled the break up with total grace. 

The pair began dating back in back in April 2015 when Bella agreed to pose for the Canadian musician's album artwork for the Beauty Behind The Madness.

The couple allegedly split due to clashing work schedules.
