Bella Hadid has reportedly broken up with her musician boyfriend The Weeknd, after a year and a half of dating.
People magazine confirmed the split yesterday, when a source revealed to the magazine that the break-up was amicable. ‘Their schedules have been too hard to coordinate and he is focusing on finishing and promoting his album,’ the source explained. ‘They still have a great deal of love for one another and will remain friends.’

She has since starred in the video for his single ‘In The Night’, and the couple made their red carpet debut at the Grammy Awards earlier this year.
