The Weeknd has dated a number of celebs, including Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez, but who is his girlfriend in 2021? Here’s what we know.
The Weeknd has had a number of high-profile relationships throughout the years.
Here’s what we know about his love life and his ex-girlfriends.

The Weeknd and Angelina Jolie sparked speculation they were dating last year, when they were pictured leaving a restaurant together and hanging out on a few occasions.
The Eternals actress perfectly side-stepped a question during her film's press tour about the pop star, when she was asked if her children are more excited about her new movie or the fact she's friends with The Weeknd.
She replied: “They are very excited about this film, if that’s what you’re asking.”
While they never addressed the reports, Abel only fuelled the rumours when he dropped album 'Dawn FM' – his new song 'Here We Go Again' includes the line: 'My new girl, she a movie star'.
But given The Weeknd mixes in the most showbiz of circles, he could quite literally be referring to any actress.
At the end of 2020, rumours started circulating that the ‘In Your Eyes’ star was romantically linked to songstress Rosalia after she remixed his hit, ‘Blinding Lights’.
They also worked together again in November 2021 on her song 'La Fama', where they starred together in its seriously flirty music video.
However, neither of the artists ever addressed the speculation, as it seems The Weeknd is remaining low-key about his love life at the moment.
Probably his most famous relationship, the ‘Starboy’ singer, real name Abel Tesfaye, first dated Bella in 2015, before amicably splitting in November 2016.
They then rekindled their romance in April 2018, and continued their relationship before calling it quits again in August 2019, with a source telling E! at the time that “they are in different places right now, physically and mentally.”
The Weeknd has since dropped a number of tracks about heartbreak, with lyrics alluding to his relationship with the supermodel.
Their on-again-off-again romance has always been a topic of interest for fans, with a source telling US Weekly in June 2020 that “there’s always a possibility that they will get back together down the line.”
The singers dated for a short nine months after they were first linked two months after his split from Bella.
They ended their relationship in October 2017 and it wasn’t long before songs about their love followed.
Lyrics of The Weeknd’s have hinted at Selena’s rekindled relationship with her long-term ex Justin Bieber being a reason behind their split.
