Throughout the past few months, we’ve seen celeb couples come and go. First, Ben Affleck trotted around Los Angeles hand in hand with Ana de Armas. Then they broke up, and soon after Jennifer Lopez ended her engagement with Alex Rodriguez. Currently, Affleck and Lopez are traveling the globe like it’s 2002. And don’t even get us started on Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker.
Now the celebrity gods have maybe blessed us with another new couple. Recently Angelina Jolie has been spotted around Los Angeles with The Weeknd, a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye. According to an anonymous source who spoke to Us Weekly, Jolie “lights up” when she talks about the musician. No word on whether the lights are blinding, though (sorry).
In July, Jolie and The Weeknd were photographed leaving a Los Angeles restaurant, prompting relationship speculation. Things intensified when they were seen months later at the same place. For now, though, it looks like they’re just friends.
That being said, here’s what a source told 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 added, “Friends believe things could turn romantic,” but they also said Jolie “is playing down talk of anything serious.” So it looks like we’ll have to wait and see on this one.
The source also told Us Weekly Jolie is “definitely warming toward Abel. He’s been pouring on the charm and going out of his way to impress her.”
Jolie finalized her divorce from ex Brad Pitt in 2019. The Weeknd, like Jolie, is no stranger to very public romances; he’s dated both Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez.
If true—and we must emphasize again this alleged romance is merely a rumor and speculation—Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd would make the hottest celeb couple ever. Kourtney and Travis would be dethroned!
