The 21-year-old model is believed to have been romancing the ‘Hotline Bling’ hitmaker since June this year, and sources claim the brunette beauty has “fallen even harder” for the hunk after he helped throw her a lavish birthday party in New York earlier this month.
A source said: “Bella has fallen even harder. 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.”
Bella – who was previously in a relationship with The Weeknd before their split in November 2016 – is said to have first been “wooed” by the 30-year-old singer after earlier this year, and despite both stars being in the public eye, the beauty is keen to keep the relationship “on the down low”, as she disliked the publicity she garnered after splitting with The Weeknd.
The insider added to Life & Style magazine: “Bella was getting over her ex and wasn’t interested in Drake, but that soon changed when Drake turned on the charm and wooed her with romantic gestures, including expensive jewellery and flowers. After having such a public relationship and breakup with The Weeknd, Bella wants to keep her new relationship on the down low.”
Meanwhile, Bella’s mother Yolanda recently revealed the star isn’t concerned about the ‘Starboy’ hitmaker’s new relationship with fellow singer Selena Gomez, which begun just two months after their split.
When asked if Bella was still hung up on the fact her former flame had jumped into a relationship with her distant pal, Yolanda said: “Not anymore I think.”
Bella’s lack of interest comes months after she admitted that her and The Weeknd’s break up will always weigh heavy on her heart because it was her first proper split.
She said: “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. It’ll be hard for a while. Love hurts, but you have to pull through. There’s no awkwardness between us.”
