The Weeknd is still showing his support for Bella Hadid.
On Sunday, the 28-year-old singer, whose real name is Abel Makkonen Tesfay, was spotted front row at the Fashion for Relief event as part the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival, where his ex-girlfriend wowed on the runway.
The Weeknd looked casual in an army green-colored jacked and baseball cap, while Hadid strutted down the catwalk in a series of sexy cocktail dresses. Earlier in the night, she hit the red carpet solo, wearing a sequin, midriff-baring black gown.
The Weeknd's appearance at the runway show comes just a few days after an eyewitness told ET that he and Hadid were kissing in Cannes. The eyewitness added that the two were also spotted laughing, checking out each other's phones and hugging throughout the evening.
Prior to Cannes, the "Starboy" singer and the 21-year-old model reportedly participated in some PDA at a Cochella party in April, though Hadid later took to Instagram to deny the rumors.
The Weeknd and Hadid called it quits in November 2016 after a year and a half together, and according to a source, there was still "a great deal of love" between them.
Despite her frequent appearances at parties and events, Hadid reveals in the June/July issue of Harper's Bazaarthat she really is a homebody at heart.
“People think I’m such a party girl, but that’s a thing of the past. I can’t wait to just sit on the couch this weekend! Now that our careers have gotten to the heights that they have and our job is to be around people all day and go to parties, the last thing I want to do on a Saturday night is go out," Hadid says. "I just want to be around people who love me. Like you [sister Gigi Hadid] and I play video games, watch movies, paint pottery—all the stupid sh*t we used to do back in our childhood before we became Gigi and Bella.”
