Ladies and gentlemen, The Weeknd AND Angelina Jolie? Rumours of a new celebrity power couple are spreading fast with the singer and actress spotted leaving a Los Angeles restaurant together this weekend.
According to the Daily Mail, the pair arrived separately on Saturday, September 25th, and spent nearly three hours at the Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California. They were then snapped by photographers leaving and reportedly entered a car together.
Jolie and The Weeknd were previously spotted at the very same restaurant back in June so either the food is seriously great at Giorgio Baldi or there’s something going on between the two.
In between their Italian dining trips, they also reportedly attended Mustafa the Poet’s concert together in July. They weren’t actually pictured at the gig together but that didn’t stop people getting all hot and bothered about the possibility.
The internet naturally was sent into meltdown by these new pictures, with a lot of people bemused by the idea of the Canadian artist and Brad Pitt’s ex being a genuine item.

If they are together, it sounds like a dream come true for The Weeknd: his 2016 song ‘Party Monster’ contains the line, “Angelina, lips like Angelina”.
Both have had previous famous partners. The Weeknd was with Bella Hadid from 2015 until 2016 and has also dated Selena Gomez (also referenced in the ‘Party Monster’ lyrics). Angelina, you probably heard, was pretty tight with Brad Pitt for a while.
They’ll probably just end up going back to Giorgio Baldi in, like, November, and the celebrity dating gossip cycle will continue. Now if they are genuinely together, what would be The Weeknd and Angelina Jolie’s celebrity couple portmanteau? The Weeklie? Wangelina? That’s the most important question.
