In a notable display of camaraderie, Selena Gomez took to her social media platforms back in February to pay tribute to Bella Hadid, a move that stunned many due to longstanding speculations of discord between the two celebrities since 2017. The rift initially emerged in the wake of Gomez’s romantic involvement with The Weeknd, who was formerly in a relationship with Hadid.

Gomez embraced a TikTok trend known as “I am Bella Hadid” and shared a post in which she playfully exclaimed, “I wish I was as pretty as Bella Hadid,” while using the Bella Hadid filter. She followed this up with another video, humorously remarking, “My name is Selena Gomez. See? It doesn’t even sound sexy.”

On her Instagram Story, Gomez affectionately referred to Hadid as her “girl crush.” Notably, Lady Gaga chimed in on Gomez’s post, offering words of reassurance, stating, “You look and are beautiful inside and out, one of my favorite ladies.”

The roots of the purported feud between Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez can be traced back to 2017 when Gomez embarked on a romantic relationship with The Weeknd shortly after his split from Hadid in the fall of 2016. During this time, both Gomez and Hadid unfollowed each other on Instagram, attracting significant public attention.

The relationship between Gomez and The Weeknd eventually ended in October 2017. Subsequently, Bella Hadid and Abel Makkonen, popularly known as The Weeknd, rekindled their romance in July 2018 before parting ways for good in August of the following year. Presently, Hadid is in a relationship with Marc Kalman, while Gomez’s romantic associations have seen various permutations throughout the years.

In November 2019, speculations of tension between the two stars resurfaced when Gomez left a supportive comment on one of Hadid’s Instagram posts, only for Hadid to subsequently delete the post. This move did not go unnoticed by Gomez’s fans, who interpreted it as a form of provocation. Gomez herself addressed the incident publicly in response to a fan’s comment about Hadid’s actions, stating, “That sucks.” However, Bella Hadid later reached out to Gomez, effectively dispelling any lingering rumors of animosity.

Meanwhile, Bella Hadid has been undergoing treatment for Lyme Disease and has received support from her older sister and the industry at large.
