Bella Hadid and The Weeknd are taking a break from their relationship, two sources tell E! News exclusively.

The 19-year-old model and the 25-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, have not commented. They had been dating since at least this past spring.

"Bella and The Weeknd have taken a break," one of the sources told E! News. "Their schedules got very busy and it really cut into there relationship. They are still in each other's lives though, just not in the same exclusive capacity."

The two did not spend the Christmas holiday together, E! News has also learned. Bella was with her mother, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, sister Gigi Hadid and brother Anwar Hadid, as seen in a photo her mom posted on Instagram.

Last weekend, The Weeknd was seen flirting with other girls backstage at his concert in Miami, which Bella did not attend, E! News has learned.

E! News confirmed in May that he and Bella were dating, after hanging out together at the 2015 Coachella Music Festival.

Meanwhile, The Weeknd is concentrating on his music career. On Christmas Eve, he dropped two new songs—"Low Life," a collaboration with Future, and a remix of Jeremih's "Pass Dat."
