The singer’s shocking performance also had an effect on two of his famous ex-partners.
The Weeknd’s Super Bowl performance earlier this week made headlines for all good reasons.
And while his fans were already raving about his memorable Super Bowl halftime show, his famous exes, model Bella Hadid and singer Selena Gomez were also beaming with pride for him.
A source told HollywoodLife about how the two women feel about the After Lights creator setting the stage on fire at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday.
“Bella thought Abel’s performance at Super Bowl halftime was amazing,” the source said, adding that she knew he would have “put a lot of work and attention into every detail because that’s the way it’s always been.”
“Bella started dating Abel several years ago, so seeing him perform at the halftime show was amazing, and she is so proud of how far she has come and to see where she is now,” they added.
Additionally, Gomez was over the moon after the performance as well, as a second source told the outlet: “She saw the performance, enjoyed it, and knew he was going to make it through. She is not following in any way what he does in his daily life. “
“They have been apart for a long time, but she knows something like this is very important to him. She feels very good for him and just hopes his blessings continue, ”added the source.
