Selena Gomez has shut down those pesky rumors about an ongoing feud with Bella Hadid by sharing some Instagram Stories gushing over the model (and fellow ex of The Weeknd).
Gomez shared a TikTok she had made using the viral “so my name, my name is Bella Hadid” lip sync trend, with the caption “I wish I was as pretty as Bella Hadid.”
In the video Gomez added a filter, but in the next Instagram Story she removes it and says, “Instead, this is me. I accidentally laminated my brows too much…my name is Selena Gomez. See! It doesn’t even sound sexy.”
Finally, Gomez shared a photo from Bella Hadid’s Vogue shoot from last year, with the caption “#girlcrush.”
All of this wouldn’t be huge news but for the fact that both stars dated The Weeknd, with Gomez dating the music artist shortly after he split from Hadid back in 2017. At the time, Bella Hadid shared a paparazzi photo of herself giving the middle finger, which seemed to be a veiled response to her ex’s new relationship.
Both stars unfollowed each other following the news, then they refollowed each other, then unfollowed each other… fueling speculation that they were not on good terms. Things were messy to say the least. Later, Hadid deleted a photo Gomez had commented on, and sources told TMZ she felt “betrayed” that Gomez didn’t tell her or sister Gigi Hadid about the relationship before it went public.
That all seems to be water under the bridge now — in the end, Gomez dated The Weekend for just under a year, while Bella Hadid and the Starboy singer got back together in 2018 before splitting for the final time in early 2020.
Currently, Hadid still doesn’t follow Gomez on Instagram, but Gomez does follow the model and her sister, Gigi Hadid.
