Angelina Jolie had a dinner date with The Weeknd in LA, but was it a work thing?

I’m here for Angelina Jolie feeling herself and having something of a Hot Girl Summer, or perhaps a Hot Villainess Summer. It’s been a long time since Angelina has had *fun* drama in her personal life, and now I’m hoping that Jonny Lee Miller and assorted young lovers are all vying for her attention. Young lovers like The Weeknd, aka Abel Tesfaye. Abel and Angelina (portmanteau: Abelina OR The Joliend) were seen out to dinner on Wednesday night in LA:

Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd were snapped exiting celebrity hotspot Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles Wednesday night, setting gossip tongues to wagging as to what their night out might have entailed.

After spending hours at the high-end Italian eatery, the pair were sure to leave separately so as to not be photographed together. The 46-year-old Oscar winner wore a black silk dress and trench coat while the “After Hours” singer, 31, kept it simple in a denim look and black boots.

While it’s possible the beauty and mother of six shared a romantic evening with the Toronto artist, the singer, né Abel Tesfaye, is also looking to further his career in Hollywood, meaning the pair could’ve met up for business reasons and nothing more.

“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.”

Tesfaye — who played a memorable role in Adam Sandler’s “Uncut Gems” and co-wrote an episode of “American Dad” last year — is set to co-write and star in the new HBO series “The Idol,” which he co-created with Reza Fahim and “Euphoria” creator Sam Levinson.

Other outlets are saying that it was for-sure romantic, but Page Six’s source definitely makes it sound like it was a work thing. That new HBO series was the first thing that came to mind, because it was literally just announced too – Abel is working with Sam Levinson to develop a drama series called The Idol. The one sentence pitch is: “The series follows a female pop singer who starts a romance with an enigmatic L.A. club owner who is the leader of a secret cult.” Abel is not just co-writing it, but I guess he’ll play the enigmatic cult dude. But is there even a role for Angelina? Or was he just asking for advice? I don’t know. Maybe she just wanted to make Jonny Lee Miller jealous.
