Most recently, the pair dined at Giorgio Baldi on September 25, according to photos published by the Daily Mail. Per the outlet, the Maleficent actress, 46, arrived at the Italian restaurant solo, but after a two-hour-long meal in the private section, she and the “Blinding Lights” singer, 31, left together, taking his waiting car to his Bel Air home.
Then, on July 10, the Canada native and the mother of six were spotted attending the same concert for Mustafa. A fan account shared photos on Twitter that showed The Weeknd with a group of friends at the event and Angelina sitting with her 16-year-old daughter Zahara and 15-year-old daughter Shiloh.
The duo were first spotted exiting Giorgio Baldi on June 30 and reportedly spent “several hours” inside, according to The Sun, which was the first publication to report news of their outing on Thursday, July 1.
A source exclusively tells In Touch they’re strictly platonic. “Angie and Abel have a very similar outlook on the world and injustices,” the insider divulges. “As far as I know, they’re working on a human rights project, something to do with ending hunger around the world and in the U.S. They both feel very strongly about a lot of the same issues.” In Touch reached out to Angelina and The Weeknd’s reps but did not hear back by the time of publication.
Sure enough, The Weeknd has followed in Angelina’s footsteps as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, and he will be helping fight world hunger. “The UN World Food Program is doing urgent and important work to change and save lives on a daily basis, and I feel passionate about addressing world hunger and helping people in need,” the singer said during an October 7, 2021, ceremony in Los Angeles.
Angelina began working as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commission on Refugees in the early aughts. Thanks to her tireless hard work and missions abroad on behalf of the UNHCR, she was made a Special Envoy in 2012.
Abel sparked rumors that he and Angelina may have have had a hot tryst when his latest album, Dawn FM, dropped on January 7, 2022. In the lyrics to “Here We Go… Again,” he sang about his “girl” being a “movie star,” and their amazing chemistry.
“My new girl, she’s a movie star,” he sang, adding about their physical connection, “I loved her right / Make her scream like Neve Campbell.” The lyrics continue, “But I make her laugh / Swear it cures my depressing thoughts / ‘Cause, baby girl, she a movie star / Baby girl, she a movie star / I told myself that I’d never fall / But here we go again.”
The Weeknd recently teamed up with Euphoria creator Sam Levinson to write, executive produce and star in an upcoming series called The Idol. The HBO series “follows a female pop singer who starts a romance with an enigmatic L.A. club owner who is the leader of a secret cult,” per Deadline. As fans may recall, the Weeknd previously showed off his acting chops in the film Uncut Gems.
As for Angelina, she made her long-awaited return as an action hero in the new film Those Who Wish Me Dead, which hit theatres and HBO Max in May.
When it comes to their past romances, The Weeknd was previously in a serious relationship with supermodel Bella Hadid in 2015. The duo broke up in 2016 and got back together in 2017 following his 10-month whirlwind romance with Selena Gomez. However, Bella, 24, and The Weeknd called it quits for good in 2019.
Angelina, for her part, has been legally single since April 2019, although her and ex Brad Pitt’s divorce has yet to be finalized due to custody issues regarding their six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne. Surprisingly, Angelina briefly opened up about her love life in May while appearing on E! News’ Daily Pop. “I probably have a very long list [of ‘no-nos’ when it comes to suitors]. I’ve been alone for a long time now,” she candidly shared at the time.
