This weekend, thousands of people headed to Indio, California for the most anticipated music festival of the year – Coachella. However, one person was noticeably missing and that person was Bella Hadid. She’s known to rock some of the hottest outfits with her sister Gigi Hadid and her friends during Coachella weekend. But this year is a little different. She stayed far away from the whole thing and we can’t help but wonder if had a little something to do with her ex-boyfriend The Weeknd and his new girl Selena Gomez.
Selena and The Weeknd got super cozy at Coachella. It’s actually the most loved up and public the couple has been since they were first spotted kissing outside of a restaurant a couple months ago. Ever since then, they have tried to keep their relationship on the down low, but it hasn’t worked out as well as they would have hoped. From traveling the world together to supporting each other professionally, it’s been super hard to not be photographed.
The Weeknd started to display their relationship on social media when he posted a photo of the two. However, Selena had yet to break that barrier — that is, until they headed to Coachella. Sel posted this photo on Instagram without a caption. But, to be honest, it doesn’t really need one.
Seriously, they got super cuddly, so the fact that Bella was thousands of miles away kind of makes sense. What was the supermodel exactly doing while her ex-boyfriend and his new girl were heating up in the desert? She was in Dubai! And it looked like she was having the time of her freaking life.
She posted this photo on Instagram with the caption, “I’m so lucky????.”
Okay, seriously, who needs Coachella anyway when you can look like THIS with your friends in Dubai?! Bella seems like she’s having a blast and the last thing on her mind is The Weeknd and Selena’s antics.
To be honest, it may have been super awkward if she made an appearance at the music festival. The celebs usually stay in close proximity to each other, so the chances of Bella bumping into Selena and The Weeknd were pretty high. Some of Bella’s other besties like Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, and Hailey Baldwin were seen bopping around the desert. But they did not come in contact with The Weeknd – not publicly, at least.
There’s no word on whether or not Bella will attend Coachella next weekend for round 2. However, we have a feeling that she will avoid seeing The Weeknd at all costs. There are most likely ways for her to figure out if he’ll be there so she can plan ahead of time.
One thing is for sure, Bella may not have missed being at Coachella, but Coachella just wasn’t the same without this Hadid sister!
