ANGELINA Jolie took her son Pax, 17, to meet The Weeknd on his recent family trip to New York City ahead of their alleged date night in Los Angeles, a source exclusively told The Sun.
The Hollywood star, 46, stunned fans when she was spotted leaving Giorgio Baldi earlier this week, after an overnight dinner with the 31-year-old Canadian singer.
An insider has now revealed that it wasn’t their first meeting, as they secretly spent time together in the Big Apple last month, and he’s even met his teenage son.
The source told The Sun: “Angel has been in contact with Abel for a while, he was in New York at the same time as she and the children.
“They met for lunch privately. She took Pax because he’s a huge fan and they get along very well, he was obviously delighted.
“They’re just friends, but who knows it might be more in the future, he made no secret of the fact that he had a crush on her.”
The Sun has reached out to representatives for Angelina and The Weeknd for comment.
The award-winning actress was seen in public with the star, real name Abel Tesfaye, this week after she and her ex Brad Pitt reached a custody agreement on their six children – following a long battle judicial.
Angelina and The Weeknd reportedly spent hours at the Italian restaurant, a celebrity hotspot in Santa Monica, before leaving separately to avoid raising suspicion.
The Maleficent star wore a simple black dress, beige trench coat, nude pumps and a black mask as she left the building.
The hitmaker went for a more casual look, opting for a black tee, matching denim pants and jacket, black combat boots and a silver pearl necklace.
Their surprising friendship came as a shock to fans, although the clues seemed to be there years earlier, with The Weeknd referring to the stunning actress in their 2016 song, Party Monster.
In the first verse he says: “Ooh, she mine, ooh girl, bump and grind / Ooh, she mine, ooh girl, bump a line / Angelina, lips like Angelina / Like Selena, a ** shape like Selena.”
He also mentioned his ex Brad, 57, in his hit Starboy, singing, “Leave a **** Brad Pitt, the fall legend took the year like a bandit”, referring to his über musical success in the fall of 2015.
The Canadian singer has been linked with his fair share of famous women, including model Bella Hadid, fellow singers Selena Gomez and Rosalía.
The Blinding Lights star dated Bella, 24, from 2015 to 2019, their first breakup being in November 2016.
He then started dating Selena during their separation, and the couple even moved into a Greenwich Village apartment together before leaving it a month later.
In May 2018, Bella and The Weeknd revived, only to separate again in August 2019.
Since then, the Save Your Tears singer has been distinctly single.
Angelina has been married three times, to Jonny Lee Miller in 1996, Billy Bob Thornton in 2000 and Brad from 2014 to 2019.
The mother-of-six had a very difficult end with the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star, and the two fought tooth and nail for fair custody of their children.
On May 13, Brad got a minor victory in the case, when the judge issued an interim ruling granting the parents joint custody of their children, with the exception of Maddox, who is no longer a minor.
But in court documents filed in December, the children gave clearer insight into how they feel about their father, with three of them even wishing to testify in the proceedings.
A source told Page Six: “A significant change has been made to custody arrangements based on an extremely detailed decision made by the judge.
“Brad was just trying to spend more time with his kids – and it’s clear Angie went out of her way to prevent that.”
The insider added, “This trial went on for several months and there were a ton of witnesses, experts, therapists and others who have been with and around the children, and the decision was based on that.”
Angelina and Brad share six children – including five minors – including Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 12.
A source previously told the Daily Mail that Brad “is so relieved” by the decision, adding that “his only intention is to spend more time with the children.”
Despite Judge John Ouderkirk’s recent ruling granting Brad and Angelina joint custody of their children, another source told the outlet that this was only a “tentative decision” as the actress plans to continue. to fight.
The insider added: “Shared custody is not the issue Angelina opposes, there were other issues, but the court proceedings are closed and sealed.”
