The much-loved actress Angelina Jolie was alluded to a love affair with the singer The Weeknd after some photos circulated on the network where the couple appeared together in public.

Weeknd is following in Angelina Jolie's humanitarian footsteps by joining the UN World Food Program (WFP) as a Goodwill Ambassador.
"The United Nations World Food Program is doing urgent and important work to change and save lives on a daily basis and I feel passionate about tackling global hunger and helping people in need," the Can singer said. t Feel My Face ".
The 31-year-old is known for his charitable efforts and recently donated $ 1 million to WFP efforts in Ethiopia.
"Whether he's performing or talking about global hunger, The Weeknd's voice is powerful and inspiring, compared only to his commitment to helping people across the globe," WFP USA chief Barron Segar said in a statement. " We are honored that he joined our mission. He will undoubtedly inspire the next generation of humanitarian in the fight to ensure that no man, woman or child goes to bed hungry. "
Jolie has worked with the UN for more than two decades.
Weeknd's move to join the cause reflects his new girlfriend, 46-year-old Jolie, who became a Goodwill Ambassador in 2001 and continued to hold the title for the next 11 years. She currently heads as a special envoy to the UN.
