Movie star Jolie, and Canadian singer The Weeknd sparked dating rumors after they were spotted for a dinner outing.
Both were spotted at the popular celebrity hotspot Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 30, 2021.
“The pair reportedly spent hours at the restaurant, before leaving separately to avoid raising suspicion,” The Sun reported.
Jolie wore a black silk dress and trench coat while The Weeknd kept it simple in a denim look and black boots.
It has been suggested that the two bonded over their love for Ethiopia. For those unversed, The Weeknd’s parents are Ethiopian, while Jolie’s adopted daughter Zahara Marley was born in the east-African country.
After spending hours at the high-end Italian eatery, they left the restaurant separately to avoid the prying eyes of the paparazzi.
“They’re clearly not trying to hide [the dinner date],” a source close to The Weeknd told Page Six. “He’s definitely focused on getting to the movie business. He has the new HBO series he’s starring in.”
The weekend dated Bella Hadid in 2015. The two parted ways in 2016 and reunited in 2017 after he reportedly dated Selena Gomez for about 10 months. However, split for good in 2019.
On the other hand, Angelina has been involved in a custody dispute with ex-husband Brad Pitt over their children. She filed for divorce from Brad on September 19, 2016. They first met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004, while Brad was still married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston.
