The Weeknd is no stranger to scandal but this time, fans have expressed their concern over his horrendous new look.
And now, they've come up with theories as to why he decided to do this to himself... and it's all pretty scandalous!
The Weeknd has left us all confused...
via: GettyI didn't think things could get more confusing than his look at the AMAs, but it seems as though he had yet another dramatic makeover in mind.
After unveiling a very shocking makeover in his most recent music video, his fans have come up with a theory as to why he's done this...
via: GettyAnd it may or may not involve an ex of his... Big yikes. Brace yourselves for this one, ladies and gentlemen...
Now, let me bring you up to speed with everything.
via: GettyFor those of you that don't know, The Weeknd (also known as Abel Tesfaye) is an R&B sensation. The Canadian-born singer-songwriter is one of the leading figures in the music industry.
The star broke into the music scene in 2011 with his mixtape, House of Balloons.
via: GettyEven in the early days, he managed to work with some pretty high profile artists including Drake and Wiz Khalifa, while still finding his feet within the industry. And now he has made it big if his latest announcement is anything to go by...
His musical success skyrocketed with his 2015 album, Beauty Behind the Madness.The album brought us the global hit single "Can't Feel My Face," which has drawn in comparison to the likes of Michael Jackson, hit no 1 on the Billboard chart, and went on to rank as the best song of the year.
His follow-up album, Starboy, also enjoyed critical success.
But he has also been in the public eye for his turbulent love life.
via: GettyThe star has been in an on-off relationship with model, Bella Hadid, since the pair linked up in 2015. According to E! News, the pair made it official in May 2015 after hanging out together at Coachella the previous month.
But it didn't take long for their relationship to hit a rocky patch.
It was the first of many hurdles for the famous pair...
via: GettyAnd in February 2016, the couple appeared to be back on when they hit the Grammys red carpet together, and then the following month, looked extremely loved-up as they posed for snaps at the Daily Front Row’s Fashion Los Angeles Awards. But it wasn't to be after the couple were reported to have split again shortly afterward.
The pair then had an awkward post-breakup reunion on the Victoria's Secret runway stage.
via: GettyJust 2 weeks after their breakup, The Weeknd released his highly acclaimed album, Starboy, and took to the stage at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, where his ex happened to be strutting her stuff. When asked about the reunion, Bella claimed that it wasn't awkward at all: "He is my best friend, and I am excited because I am walking during his performance."
This time, the split was serious...
via: GettyAnd The Weeknd even moved on, coupling up with singer Selena Gomez. But it didn't take long for the R&B star and Bella to get on friendly terms again when in late-2017, the singer was pictured leaving Bella's apartment.
Throughout 2018, the couple were rumored to be back on.
via: GettyThe pair were spotting kissing on various occasions and were even spotted going on a date. But after a number of strong months, the couple called it quits (again) and this time, it seemed to be for good.
In true post-breakup style, The Weeknd showcased a drastic makeover in 2019.
via: GettyIn a rare red carpet appearance, the R&B powerhouse attended the premiere of his feature film debut, Uncut Gems, at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
But the star was looking notably different...
via: GettyThe "I Feel It Coming" singer made quite a few changes to his signature look, which has hardly changed over the years - opting to trade his usual full-grown beard for a mustache and swapping out his hairdo completely. He still rocked it, of course...
The star had been teasing his latest album over his socials...
And to make things even better...
via: GettyThe singer announced that he’ll be performing at the iconic Super Bowl half-time show this year.
However, it seems as though he's going through something currently...
via: GettyBecause his appearance at the AMAs back in November has left us all speechless.
Not only was the singer sporting a brightly colored two-piece, but his entire face was also covered with bandages...
via: GettyAnd we couldn't forget about the dramatic eye bags, could we? It was truly shocking.
At the time, he explained his bizarre outfit.Esquire.
"But nothing could stop you from trying to go see that person, because you’re so lonely. I don’t want to ever promote drunk driving, but that’s what the dark undertone is."
And we have now been graced with his new "post-surgery" look in his new music video "Save Your Tears."
