Are Drake and Bella Hadid the newest Hollywood power couple? The 30-year-old Canadian singer and the young model sparked romance rumors after he attended her 21st birthday party in New York on Monday, October 9.
But a source with knowledge of the situation tells Us Weekly that they’re “definitely” not dating. Drizzy was one of the many famous celebrities who celebrated Bella’s big day at Maggio Cipriani’s private club Socialista Longue above Cipriani Downtwn. A source said “about 30 people” attended the bash, including rapper Travis Scott (II), DJ Martin Garrix, talent manager Scooter Braun and, of course, Bella’s sister and fellow model Gigi Hadid.
Bella’s mom Yolanda Hadid also denied the dating rumors. The 53-year-old TV personality and former model said in Tuesday, October 10 episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen”, “Are you kidding? I mean, they’re friends.”
Yolanda also addressed her daughter’s past relationship with The Weeknd, who is now dating singer Selena Gomez, during her appearance. After host Andy Cohen asked, “Does Bella care that The Weeknd is with Selena?” the former “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star replied, “Not anymore, I think.”
Bella was in a relationship with The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye, for nearly two years. They started dating at the beginning of 2015, with the pair being seen together for the first time in April at Coachella. She starred in his music video for “In the Night” in December that same year.
They made their red carpet debut as a couple at the 2016 Grammy Awards in February. They split up in November 2016, reportedly due to their schedules being too conflicting. Just two months later, the “Starboy” hitmaker began dating his current girlfriend, Selena.
Meanwhile, Drizzy previously dated Rihanna and enjoyed a brief fling with Jennifer Lopez and sports analyst Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, the latter of whom he brought as his date to the NBA Awards back in June. The “One Dance” hitmaker shared on Instagram a photo of him and Rosalyn at the time, captioning it, “My stunning date for the evening.”
