Bella Hadid says she ‘constantly’ came back to the men and women who ‘abused’ her

The American model has spoken of a series of abusive relationships over the years which have affected her “sexual, physical and emotional” health.

American model Bella Hadid had revealed she had a history of “abusive” relationships.

The 25-year-old said she had no limits when it came to her sexual, physical and emotional health, which ultimately affected her career as well, the New York Post reports.

“I kept coming back to men – and also women – who had abused me and that’s where people-pleasers came in,” Bella admitted to Victoria’s Secret.VS Voice Podcast.

“I started to have no boundaries, not only sexually, physically, emotionally, but then it got into my workspace. I started pleasing people with my work.

Bella, who is the daughter of property developer Mohamed Hadid and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Yolanda Hadid, is currently dating art director Marc Kalman, 33.

She dated The Weeknd, 31, on and off from 2015 to 2019.

“I always felt like my voice was never heard growing up. I grew up with men – whether in relationships or family or whatever – where I was constantly told that my voice was less important than their voice,” Bella recalled.

“Then getting into relationships growing up, and not having the limitations of being able to stand up for myself and have my voice heard, affected me very intensely in my adult relationships. My nervous system would crash. It was fight or leak.

Bella shared that trying to take breaks from social media has been a “powerful” healing tool.

“It sounds very cliché, but not having everyone’s energy and their projections projected onto you is one of the most powerful things ever,” she said. “It’s a cliché for a reason because it’s a fact that it works.”

Earlier this month, Bella also made headlines for candidly discussing her inability to “control” herself while drinking.

“I did my fair share of drinking. I loved alcohol and got to the point where even I started, you know, canceling parties where I felt like not being able to control myself,” she said. In the style.

The model, who has been sober for six months, said it was “much harder to pick up the glass” after a doctor showed her scans revealing the effects of alcohol on the brain.

“I don’t feel the need [to drink anymore] because I know how it will affect me at 3 a.m. when I wake up with horrible anxiety thinking about that thing I said five years ago when I graduated from high school,” she admitted, noting that she was happy to let go of the “endless cycle of ‘pain and stress’.”
