Bella Hadid and The Weeknd may have broken up, but the Victoria Secret model told E! News in an interview that there are no hard feelings between them.

The Weeknd’s performing at the VS Fashion Show 2016, where Hadid was walking the runway, so it was potentially awkward, but according to the model, the two are on more than amicable terms.

“This is his second year performing, and I think he’s going to kill it. There is no awkwardness. He is my best friend, and I am excited because I am walking during his performance.”


Recently, Bella Hadid’s weight made news because of pictures that surfaced showing a very slimmed down version of herself.

She admits that she was trying to lose weight because she is going to be in her first ever Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which will air December 5. But it seems she’s lost a bit too much weight.

Bella Hadid’s Workout and Diet for Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Paris

In an interview with People magazine, the model said, “I have lost weight and gained weight.” The 20-year-old will be walking in the lingerie show wearing two outfits. “My weight fluctuates so much. I really didn’t mean to [lose weight]. Like I want boobs. I want my ass back. But it’s not my fault. My weight fluctuates and so does everybody’s and I think that if people are gonna judge, that’s the worst you can possibly do because everybody is different,” she told People.

She says she’s been eating protein every day, and working out for three hours a day. “It’s crazy but I think that you know if you set your mind to something I think you can succeed.” In an interview with WWD back in March, Hadid said her diet at the moment was filled with pizza and admitted to not really being a workout person, but said “I definitely like to do cardio when I do. I guess I run sometimes, drink green juices once a week.” She most likely ditched the pizza in the months directly leading up to this week’s Victoria Secret show.


Gigi Hadid’s sister has worked with some top brands, including DKNY and Calvin Klein. Staying hydrated and eating healthy are two things she keeps on her mind, even when travelling, where food choices tend to become less nutritious. But even then, she admits to having cheat days. “I’m going to eat pasta right now,” she told the People interviewer after wrapping up her fitting. “If you want to have a piece of bread, go have a piece of bread.”

Hadid works out with trainer Rob Piela, who is responsible for many Victoria Secret model bodies, including Miranda Kerr’s. “He’s really the best,” says Hadid. Her only rule is that she does one-on-one training sessions with him, because she doesn’t like working out in groups. On her own, she likes to do yoga and Pilates.

Bella Hadid’s main concern for the past few months has been on her desire to do well at the show and look good in her lingerie pieces. “I think every single person in the world has insecurities,” she says. “When people look at all of the VS models or all of the girls [who] are walking, they’re like, ‘They’re not human. They don’t have any insecurities.’ But I think every single girl [who’s] going to be walking probably has an insecurity.”

The show airs December 5, and fans around the world will be able to see how hard all the models worked, and see them do what they do best: walk the catwalk and make us all wish we were Angels.
