There have been rumors swirling that Drake threw her a 21st birthday party earlier this month. And since the "One Dance" hitmaker threw her the party, "Bella has fallen even harder" for him, 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 and Bella first met back when the model was still dating The Weeknd. Following her heartbreaking split from the 27-year-old singer in November 2016, "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."
Bella wants to keep her alleged new romance with Drake under the radar, says the source, who explains, "After having such a public relationship and breakup with The Weeknd," who is now dating singer/actress Selena Gomez, the younger Hadid sister "wants to keep her new relationship on the down low."
Reps for Bella and Drake are yet to give any comment regarding the dating report.
But a source previously said to Us Weekly that they're "definitely" not dating. The source explained Drake was not the one who threw Bella the birthday bash. He's allegedly one of the many famous celebrities, including rapper Travis Scott (II) and DJ Martin Garrix, who attended the party at Maggio Cipriani's private club Socialista Longue above Cipriani Downtown.
Bella's mom Yolanda Hadid also denied the dating rumors. The 53-year-old TV personality and former model said in Tuesday, October 10 episode of "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen", "Are you kidding? I mean, they're friends."
