Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd were seen leaving the same restaurant together in LA on Thursday evening. The actress, 46, and singer, 31, had spent the night at celebrity hotspot Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica and were pictured leaving just moments apart, according to reports.
Doting mum Angelina, who is currently going through a div-orc-e battle with Brad Pitt, is not publicly known to be friends with the musician – whose real name is Abel Tesfaye. She looked incredible in a silk dress, while he sported a denim jacket and jeans for the outing. Page Six reports that the pair “dined together there for hours” and although they are both single, it’s thought they were on a business meeting.
A source close to the singer told the publication: “They’re clearly not trying to hide the dinner date. “He’s definitely fo*used on getting to the movie business. He has the new HBO series he’s starring in.” The Weeknd is set to make his acting debut in HBO Max series The Idol. In recent weeks, Angelina appears to have been enjoying some time with an ex. She got tongues wagging as she was seen leaving ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller’s apartment after what appeared to be an intimate dinner together.
The pair were married in March 1996, but separ-ated just 18 months later. Their divorce was made official in 1999 and five years later she said that calling it quits was one of her biggest mistakes. But while it may be over three decades since the pair were legally husband and wife, it seems they are still close. The Mr. and Mrs. Smith star was in New York for belated birthday trip, where she was joined by all six of her children.
Angie made time to pop in and see her old flame as they enjoyed a few hours in each others’ company. The Mirror has contacted Angelina and The Weeknd’s representatives for a comment.
