Bella Hadid has a new love interest that isn’t The Weeknd! According to Us Weekly, the 21-year-old model is hooking up with NBA basketball player Jordan Clarkson. A source told the website that the two have spending a lot of time together lately. “They’ve been hanging out the past few weeks,” the insider revealed. In fact, the two hung out with his teammate Brandon Ingram, as well as Bella’s friends Hailey Baldwin, Camila Morrone, and Justine Skye in New York City in December.
If Jordan’s name sounds familiar, it’s probably because he was also romantically linked to Bella’s BFF Kendall Jenner in 2016. He and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star dated for a little while and even shared a New Year’s Eve kiss last year. Although they never confirmed the status of their relationship, they hung out in public a lot. However, that ended after a couple a months and Kendall eventually moved on with A$AP Rocky. Now, she’s with NBA star Blake Griffin.
Considering Kendall and Jordan only dated for a short period of time, we’re going to assume Bella isn’t breaking any girl code by hooking up with him. After all, if there’s anyone that should be bummed about this news, it’s The Weeknd. It seemed as though he and Bella were going to get back together after he and Selena Gomez split in November. The singer was spotted leaving Bella’s apartment late at night, as well as reports suggesting the two were totally still in love.
We’re low-key still rooting for Bella and The Weekend even though she may have found a new man. As of right now, neither Bella nor Jordan have confirmed anything, so it may just be a casual hook up.
Following her split from The Weeknd, Bella discussed how hard it is to go through a break up in the public eye. “It was my first breakup — or second, next to the horse — and so public. As an outsider, you might think I handled it so well, but it’s always in your heart, and you always feel it very heavily,” she told Teen Vogue. “It’ll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through.”
In April, she revealed that she wants to focus on herself. “I’m just really focusing on myself, and my work, and just being the best that I can be,” Bella told Porter magazine. “I’m not really worried about what guys think about me; I’m just trying to be a woman!”
Then in July, she tweeted that she’s in a committed relationship with herself.
Just to be clear…i’m STILL not dating any of my best friends, y’all! In a committed relationship with myself & my happiness for now🙏🏼💍❤️🤣

Whether she gets back together with The Weeknd again or goes totally public with Jordan, all we want is for Bella to be happy and in love. Perhaps, she and Kendall can go on double dates with their NBA boyfriend now – or would that be too weird?
