What’s really going on between Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd?
The two first sparked romance rumors after they were spotted having dinner at the Giorgi Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California. On Saturday, September 25, they were photographed having a late-night dinner at the same restaurant which ignited speculations that they’re dating.
The two matched in all-black ensembles and arrived separately at the said resto. However, they were spotted leaving together in The Weeknd’s car.
So what’s the real score between them? A source exclusively told E! News that the two are just friends.
“They are not dating,” the insider shared. “They have mutual interests and are enjoying putting their ideas together to see what they can come up with.” Adding, “They have been recently talking about partnering on a few humanitarian projects together. He loves talking about movies and the art form.”
Further, the insider explained that though they “have been enjoying each other’s company, they aren’t dating. He has been enjoying getting to know her and feels they have formed a close bond.”
Meanwhile, a separate source said the same thing, stating that they became friends after meeting months ago. The source revealed, “The Weeknd and Angelina met through mutual friends in the film and entertainment industry. They have a lot in common. They totally hit it off after their first meeting earlier this summer and have kept in touch ever since.”
The two A-listers are keeping the details regarding their friendship, after all, they’ve been to high-profile relationships before. Angelina divorced Brad Pitt five years ago and they’re still in a custody battle over their six kids.
On the other hand, the Grammy winner and supermodel Bella Hadid were on an on-and-off romance years ago and dated Selena Gomez while they were still taking a break. The two called it quits in October 2017.
In August, The Weeknd told GQ during an interview that it’s easier for him to date celebrities. It’s because they’re already used to being on the spotlight. He explained that he feels guilty dating someone who isn’t famous and unaccustomed to the public eye.
He said, “I do feel guilty. That’s why I don’t…I try not to do too much. I just try not to bring attention to myself. And I just love being in normal situations, man. It’s such a great feeling. To be able to just like go on a walk and not being in a f–king SUV.”
