Is The Weeknd dating anyone right now? As the new-wave crooner prepares to make his acting debut in HBO's The Idol, here's a look inside his dating life—including his past girlfriends.

The Weeknd (real name Abel Tesfaye) has been involved in a number of high-profile romances, from his on-and-off relationship with Bella Hadid to those dating rumors (and suggestive lyrics) that linked him to actress, Angelina Jolie.

Most recently though, thanks to his upcoming on-screen relationship with Lily-Rose Depp in The Idol, fans have been wondering if there's actually something going between the costars. So, allow us to wade through all the rumors and share who—if anyone—The Weeknd is actually dating...

Who is The Weeknd dating?

As of April 2023, The Weeknd is thought to be dating model, Simi Khadra—the younger sister of Kendall Jenner's close friend, Fai Khadra. They were first linked in 2022, before fuelling the speculation further after they were photographed kissing on February 19, 2022, at The Weeknd's birthday bash at Delilah in Las Vegas, Nevada.

At the time, a source told Entertainment Tonight: "The Weeknd and Simi have been seeing each other and having fun together. They were acting very couple-y this past weekend at his birthday celebration in Vegas.

"It's easy since they have known each other for a long time. Simi is supportive of The Weeknd and they have a natural flirtation and chemistry."

Then, in April 2023 the couple was spotted cozying up at Coachella, seemingly confirming that they're still going strong—albeit, keeping their relationship somewhat out of the spotlight.

Are the Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp dating?

Despite the recent speculation, no The Weeknd and Lily-Rose Depp are not an item. They are, however, playing on-screen lovers in the upcoming HBO series The Idol (which yes, is the same series that sparked all that The Weeknd and Rolling Stone drama) but apart from that, the two are just co-stars.

In fact, in terms of Lily-Rose Depp's dating sitch, the model-turned-actress has recently confirmed that she is in a relationship with singer and rapper, 070 Shake.

Who has The Weeknd dated in the past?

As mentioned, the Sacrifice singer has been linked to a number of notable names, from Bella Hadid to Selena Gomez...

The Weeknd and Angelina Jolie

Following his second split from Bella Hadid—who is now dating Marc Kalman—The Weeknd was thought to be dating Angelina Jolie back in July 2021.

Rumors started swirling after the pair were pictured enjoying a very cozy-looking dinner in LA. Fans also began speculating that The Weeknd alluded to their brief relationship in his track 'Here We Go Again' where he sang: "My new girl, she a movie star."

Alas though, rumors swiftly fizzled out.

The Weeknd and Bella Hadid famously dated between 2015 and 2016, with Bella starring in his 'In The Night' music video. Following their split, she also famously walked the Victoria's Secret show, where The Weeknd was performing—a moment that has been immortalized by the internet as one of the most iconic ex-encounters.

Bella is also thought to have inspired a number of The Weeknd's ballads, with fans claiming hits like 'Save Your Tears' and 'Wasted Times' are about the model.

The pair went on to rekindle things once again in 2018, before splitting for good in August 2019. As of July 2021, Bella is now dating photographer Marc Kalman.

The Weeknd and Selena Gomez

Two months after his first split from Bella Hadid, The Weeknd began dating Selena Gomez in 2016. 

The Weeknd and Selena made their red carpet debut at The Met Gala in 2017 but split in October of the same year, with Selena Gomez then briefly being linked to her ex, Justin Bieber.

Like Bella, Selena is thought to have inspired a number of songs, including 'Call Out My Name' and 'Party Monster.'

Following his breakup with Selena and ahead of his reconciliation with Bella, The Weeknd was also linked to model Yovanna Ventura in 2017 and DJ Chantel Jeffries in 2018, but nothing romantic was ever confirmed by the singer himself.
