Hollywood is the land of some of the messiest splits around but there are some celebrities who know how to keep things happily ever after in spite of breaking up. OK, maybe not happy, but civil. Cordial, even. After months and years go by and the split was a mutual decision, it’s easy to be friendly because bygones, right? But what happens when you come face-to-face with your ex shortly after a split? How awkward can things get?
For singer Cody Simpson and model Gigi Hadid, plenty. The two, who only broke up last month, were in Toronto on the weekend for the MuchMusic Video Awards. Both attended, had a fabulous time but, more importantly, managed not to run into each other and crisis was seemingly averted.

Until they boarded a plane to fly home and discovered that they were seated next to each other.
Hadid’s rep told Us Weekly at the time of their breakup, “They love each other dearly and have split up in hopes that growing on their own paths will bring them together in the future. They remain friends with no hard feelings and each other’s biggest supporters.”
Hmm, wonder if they had any clue how soon the future would actually be. Especially after Cody took a pic of his seatmate and shared it with fans via Snapchat.
In case you were wondering, the close quarters for five hours didn’t result in a reconciliation. Us reports the two split once they landed at LAX. Nice try, flight gods, but those two are probably better friends than anything more.
