Five reasons why we love the Yas Hotel Abu Dhabi

The Weeknd was headlining the sporting event’s post race show, at Du Arena. Although security reportedly had to turn people away from the popstar’s Friday night show, due to overcrowding, it wasn’t a problem for Bella, who watched from the show from the wings of the outdoor auditorium.

Bella wasn’t the only one lucky enough to get a backstage pass to her boyfriend’s show. She was also joined in the wings by her cousin Reema and her cousin’s two daughters, Salma and Aya who live in Dubai. Bella posted a sweet series of images with her family along with the caption “Truly such a special night I only get to see my beautiful cousin Reema and nieces Salma & Aya when I’m in Dubai, and they drove up for the show in Abu Dhabi made my whole year, I feel so lucky!” She also went on to complement The Weeknd’s performance, writing ” Such a great show baby in one of my favorite places in the … Best night ever!”.
