ANGELINA Jolie was spotted on a romantic date night with The Weeknd in LA after her nasty custody battle with ex-husband Brad Pitt.
The award-winning actress and her ex divorced in 2019, but are still locked in a tense custody war over their six children.
Angelina, 46, was spotted enjoying a charming date at Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles with The Weeknd, also known as Abel Tesfaye, 31.
The pair reportedly spent hours at the restaurant, before leaving separately to avoid raising suspicion.
The Maleficent star wore a simple black dress, tan trench coat, nude pumps, and a black mask as she left the building.
Abel went for a more casual look with a black tee-shirt, matching denim pants and jacket, black combat boots and a silver chain.
Their encounter comes as a bit of a shock after the songwriter previously mentioned Brad in his 2016 hit single Starboy.
“Let a n**ga Brad Pitt, legend of the fall took the year like a bandit,” the Weeknd sang, referencing his über musical success in the Fall of 2015.
The Canadian singer has been linked to his fair share of famous ladies, including model Bella Hadid, fellow singers Selena Gomez, and Rosalía.
The Blinding Lights star dated Bella, 24, on and off from 2015 to 2019, with their first breakup happening in November of 2016.
Abel began dating Selena Gomez during their split, and the couple even moved into a Greenwich Village apartment together before calling it quits a month later.
In May of 2018, Bella and The Weeknd rekindled, only to breakup once more in August of 2019.
Since then, the Save Your Tears singer has been markedly single.
Angelina has been married three times, to Jonny Lee Miller in 1996, Billy Bob Thornton in 2000, and Brad Pitt from 2014 to 2019.
The mother of six had a very rocky ending with the 57-year-old Academy Award winner, and the two have fought tooth and nail for fair custody of their kids.
On May 13th, Brad had a minor win in the case, when the judge granted a temporary ruling giving the parents shared custody of their children, except for Maddox, who is no longer a minor.
But in court documents filed in December, the children gave a clearer look at how they feel about their father, with three even wanting to testify in the proceedings.
The document, obtained by Us Weekly read: “The children whose custody is at issue are old enough to understand what is going on.
“The trial is necessarily going to impact them emotionally. Three of the children have asked to testify. To make any of the children endure what may be a futile and void proceeding is beyond unjustified. It is cruel.”
Furthermore, Angelina requested that the judge on the case, John Ouderkirk, be removed due to a conflict of interest with Brad's lawyers.
The actress's legal team argued that Ouderkirk had "ongoing business and professional relationships” and should be removed from the case.
“Judge Ouderkirk denied Ms Jolie a fair trial, improperly excluding her evidence relevant to the children’s health, safety, and welfare, evidence critical to making her case,” the documents claimed.
