The Weeknd and Bella Hadid have split. The pair called it quits after dating for a year and a half.

The Canadian artist and the 20-year-old model could not cope up with their hectic schedules. A source told People: "Their schedules have been too hard to coordinate and he is focusing on finishing and promoting his album. They still have a great deal of love for one another and will remain friends."

The Weeknd whose real name is Abel Tesfaye and Gigi Hadid's sister were first linked together in April 2015 when he asked her to be in the artwork for his album, Beauty Behind the Madness. The duo made their first red carpet appearance as a couple at the 2016 Grammys.

Bella told Glamour magazine: "It was a big night for him. He has worked so hard, and he did so well that night. As a girlfriend I wanted to be there to support him. Seeing him so happy when he won a Grammy made me so happy."

She added: "I'm dating Abel. I don't see him as The Weeknd. I'm proud of The Weeknd and the music he makes, but I really love Abel."

Adding on, The Weeknd and Bella also attended the Met Gala together. They were last spotted together in October in New York City for Bella's birthday celebrations.

The Weeknd's new album, Starboy, is scheduled to be released on 25 November. Meanwhile, Bella will walk in her first Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which will air on 5 December.
