Bella Hadid and The Weeknd Finally Go Public with Their Relationship

Finally, here is photographic evidence that Bella Hadid and The Weeknd are dating.

Gigi’s 18-year-old sister, also a model, and the Weeknd stepped out on a weekday last night (Sept. 8) in NYC, going public for the first time since they reportedly started dating back in May.

Hadid, 18, and The Weekend, 25, were spotted leaving a restaurant together and later showing affection as they held hands on their way out of Up and Down Nightclub.

The Weeknd, whose just-released album Beauty Behind the Madness has the second-largest release of the year behind Drake’s “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”, recently opened up about his love life in an interview with The New York TimesWhen “The Hills” singer, real name Abel Tesfaye, was asked if he was in love with his girlfriend, he answered confusingly, “I don’t know, to be honest with you. I don’t think so. Maybe. It’s no, it’s yes, it’s maybe.”

They attended Coachella together back in April. At the time, a source told E! News, “They have many things in common and really enjoyed each other’s company. She loves his music as well. They are hanging out for sure now.”

Up until now, there has been little documentation of their relationship neither on social media nor in real life, save for this single Instagram photo Hadid posted of Tesfaye and Gigi, captioned “My <3’s”:
