Today in Possible Hollywood Power Couple Alert that no one saw coming: Canadian pop superstar The Weeknd and Angelina Jolie were spotted out to dinner together at a romantic Italian restaurant in LA. We’re gonna need a minute here because we’re blinded by the lights.
The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) met the Mr & Mrs Smith star at charming Los Angeles date spot Giorgio Baldi where the two reportedly dined together for several hours before leaving separately so as not to raise suspicions. Ummm, too late for that, you two!
Although we would ship the couple 100 per cent (can we call them Abelina?), a source tells Page Six that their dinner was likely business-related. “They’re clearly not trying to hide [the dinner date]. He’s definitely focused on getting to the movie business. He has the new HBO series he’s starring in.”
As they left the restaurant and got into their own separate cars, they ignored questions from the paps like, “New couple alert?” and “Are you and Angie dating?”
The dinner comes just a few weeks after Angie was spotted visiting with her ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller in NYC. Jolie and Jonny co-starred together in 1995’s Hackers, before marrying in 1996. They ultimately divorced in 1999 but remained friends. She then went on to marry Billy Bob Thornton 2000, and Brad Pitt in 2014. Their 5-year custody battle over their six children has dominated the news lately, but Angelina has for all intents and purposes remained single during this time.
The Weeknd famously dated both model Bella Hadid and singer Selena Gomez in recent years. His mega-hit “Heartless” is rumoured to be about his tumultuous dating past with both of these women.
Frankly, if the Angie and Abel turn out to be a thing, we are looking forward to the Girl, Interrupted Oscar-winner spending some time in Scarborough. Angie, you are gonna love Johnny’s Hamburgers!
