Life & Style is exclusively reporting that model Bella Hadid and rapper Drake are dating. On the surface, it seemed pretty random that Drake threw Bella an extravagant 21st birthday bash at NYC’s Socialista lounge on Oct. 9. Turns out there was a reason for his generosity: They “have been secretly dating since June,” a source reveals.
Since Drake threw her the party, “Bella has fallen even harder” for the rapper, says the source. “She thought it was so romantic. It started out casual, but they’re definitely serious [now]. They’ve been meeting up and going out for romantic dinners.

Drake, 30, first met Bella back when she was dating The Weeknd, 27. After the duo’s November 2016 split, “Bella was getting over her ex and wasn’t interested in Drake,” the source says, “but that soon changed when Drake turned on the charm and wooed her with romantic gestures, including expensive jewelry and flowers.”
“After having such a public relationship and breakup with The Weeknd,” the source explains, “Bella wants to keep her new relationship on the down low.”
