Angelina Jolie & The Weeknd’s friends think ‘something romantic is going on’

The American Actress Angelina Jolie spotted in the city of love and heads to a restaurant via a taxi boat in Venice.

In June and July, Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd were seen out together a few times. First, they went to dinner late one night, and then a few weeks later, they were both in attendance at a private concert, and Angelina had her two older girls with her. Then over the weekend (heh), Angelina and Abel were seen out at Giorgio Baldi. According to People Magazine, they arrived separately but left together, in his car, and they went back to his place in Bel Air. Hmm. So what IS going on here? My first and second instinct was “work thing” or “charity thing,” as in they’re working together on something which is not romantic or sexual at all. But now I don’t know. According to Us Weekly’s sources, Angelina has the look of someone with a crush?

Can’t feel her face! Angelina Jolie “lights up” when she talks about her growing friendship with The Weeknd, a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

“Both Angie and Abel are telling people that they are just friends, but those who know them think something romantic is going on,” the insider adds, noting that the “Blinding Lights” crooner, 31, “is in awe of” the Eternals actress, 46. According to the source, “friends believe things could turn romantic” between The Weeknd (born Abel Tesfaye) and the Oscar winner, who “is playing down talk of anything serious” at the moment.

“She’s definitely warming toward Abel,” the insider tells Us. “He’s been pouring on the charm and going out of his way to impress her.”

The twosome were first spotted together at Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles in July. Two months later, they were photographed at the same Italian restaurant. While the Daily Mail reported that the pair arrived separately, they left together after spending time in a private dining section.

Again, I have no idea. I’m personally not attracted to Abel, but I can see how some women are attracted to him. I also believe that he’s probably more than capable of being charming, lovely and kind. And I hope that’s the energy he’s bringing to the table, because I do not think Jolie would stick around (professionally or personally) if he was being an LA douchebag and checking his phone a million times or treating her with disrespect in any way. I’m so worried about my fave, I hope he’s good enough for her!! *sob*

    I love that bottom picture of her. Whatever is happening, I hope that it makes her happy, she deserves it.

    Both The Weeknd and Zahara Jolie-Pitt are of Ethiopian descent, and he is one of the most charitable musicians today, especially when it comes to supporting BLM causes and supporting his parents’ homeland. Seems to me it is probably about charitable endeavors in Ethiopia, given the humanitarian crisis there. Or at least, that’s how it might have started. As for how it’s going…

  3. Pocket Litter says:

    He has more than enough money and a huge new-to-him house with bedrooms to fill. What more could she need?

  4. Maria from Tercer mundo says:

    The date was a saturday night, people. Come on. It’s not about business or charity or quantum physics. I don’t think that’s romantic neither. They’re are just friends or f@ck!ng friends but stop with the nonsense about professional reasons.
    I can’t imagine to Angelina in a serious relationship again. She is recovering from such emotional demage that she suffered with the scumbag of her ex husband.
    She deserves happiness. Enjoy it, Angie!
    By the way, her pic with shorter and voluminous hair is just BREATHTAKING. Insane beauty

    • Myra says:

      Once I saw the Saturday night part, there’s just no way I’m believing this is professional. It may have started professionally though. He’s probably just shooting his shot. She deserves it.

    • Oliphant says:

      That pic is making me want to cut my hair!!! Just stunning.

    • Christina says:

      Here! Here! Maria, EVERYTHING you said.

      The pool is so small for her. People meet. Abel is nice. They are both gorgeous. They should have fun. They both seem like nice, but serious, people in a wild business.

      Los Angeles is a horrible place to meet a mate, but it happens. Maybe he’s her future. He’s probably a fuck buddy. And that’s grown stuff they both have the right to do.

      LA and the business are filled with people, but it’s a lonely place. I love this for both of them. Two sensitive souls sort of colliding in the world of Hollywood. She deserves kindness and love and sex and happiness.

    If he’s already married to an actress then he’ll probably be her next husband.

    • Dutch says:

      I’m not sure even Angelina can compete with the Weeknd’s first love, cocaine.

    • AmelieOriginal says:

      I don’t get this comment, I don’t think The Weeknd’s ever been married? The only people I know of that he dated publicly are Bella Hadid, a model, and Selena Gomez, a singer. Angelina is the first actor that he has potentially dated that I’ve heard of.

      • Sierra says:

        She thinks she is clever by stating that Angelina will only interested if Abel was married. Basically saying Angelina is a home wrecker 🙄

      • SaraR. says:

        I think it was supposed to be a snark comment of “Angelina is stealing husbands” kind. Not very successful delivery, though.

  6. Michael says:

    I think E News did a clarification on them yesterday stating that they are not sexing, however, they are really becoming close friends and like each other a ton. Apparently they are kicking around projects both charitable and movies. It is known in the XO fandom that Abel has always had a huge crush on Angelina (as has everybody else) so I think he is probably treating her like gold and charming the crap out of her.

  7. lucy2 says:

    My guess is it’s a project/friendship thing, but both are enjoying the speculation and having a little fun with it.

  8. AmelieOriginal says:

    I wonder if they met through Zahara or one of her kids? Maybe one of them was a big fan of his music so Angelina reached out to set up a meeting and they discovered they really enjoyed each other’s company.

    • Michael says:

      I don’t know if that is how they met but I have read that her kids are huge fans. Pax is supposed to be the big fan however and it is said that they met in NYC and Pax got to meet Abel in person.

    • Isabella says:

      Zahara knew the Weekend? Please, spill the tea.

  9. Sierra says:

    Who cares, my girl Angelina is just having some well deserved fun 🤩

  10. Lively says:

    I hope Angie has all the fun in the world.

  11. 123Qwerty says:

    Wow, this is a clumsy it of PR.

  12. Jenny says:

    She’s clearly glowing when she’s with him. Why is everyone trying to cram their weekend late night dates into some sort of professional box?

    Her picker sometimes sucks… (Billy Bob ) but whatevs.

  13. LadySwampwitchGivsneaufux says:

    i don’t think this is romantic but if it is best to both! They seem like good people. I am not sensing “hot affair” though.
