Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd have ignited dating rumors and we can’t get our heads around it!
Jolie and the singer were spotted having dinner together at the Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California. “The pair reportedly spent hours at the restaurant, before leaving separately to avoid raising suspicion,” The Sun reported.
For the outing, the actress, 46. wore a brown trench coat over a black silk dress. The Blinding Lights singer, on the other hand, kept it simple in a blue denim jacket, a black T-shirt, and jeans.
Are Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd dating?
Nothing has been confirmed yet and as unusual as the couple sounds, it wouldn’t be surprising if they are dating.
Reports say that the two probably bonded over their love for Ethiopia — the singer’s parents are from the country, and so is Jolie’s daughter, Zahara.
In fact, The Weeknd recently revealed he would donate $1 million towards relief efforts in Ethiopia.
That said, it could also be that the two met for dinner for purely business reasons. The singer, né Abel Tesfaye, is planning to make a plunge into acting and Hollywood.
“They’re clearly not trying to hide [the dinner date],” a source close to Abel told Page Six. “He’s definitely focused on getting to the movie business. He has the new HBO series he’s starring in.”
He co-created the series with Euphoria creator Sam Levinson and Reza Fahim.
So, while the dating narrative seems quite likely, it could be that Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd simply met to discuss business and exchange some career advice.
The Weeknd’s last major relationship was with Bella Hadid. They began dating in 2015, broke up in 2016 but reunited in 2017. They then ended things for good in 2019.
Before their reunion in 2017, The Weeknd was also linked to Selena Gomez. They dated for ten months.
As for Angelina Jolie, she is in the middle of a prolonged divorce and custody battle with ex-husband Brad Pitt.
Recently, there were also reports that the Maleficent star was “reconnecting” with her first husband, Jonny Lee Miller. She even introduced her kids to him.
