The Weeknd's fans have been quizzing the musician on if he was inspired by ex Bella Hadid with his freaky 'plastic surgery' face.
This week, the US singer – real name Abel Makkonen Tesfaye – shocked his fanbase when he unveiled a dramatic new face, crafted out of elaborate prosthetics, as part of a role in his latest music video to accompany his song Save Your Tears.
In the freaky footage the 30-year-old sports a bizarre appearance with plumped up lips, an enhanced jawline and cheekbones as well as an impossibly smooth complexion.
And some of the Canadian hitmakers fans have savagely been theorising that the new song is about his famous ex-girlfriend Bella Hadid, and that his plastic surgery face is a nod to her, as catwalk queen Bella has often faced criticism that her looks are not her own.

A second echoed: "I think The Weeknd is shading Bella Hadid, look at the nose and the lips and the pout lol, plastic!"
Others joined in: "I’m sure he’s mocking Bella Hadid cause she always says she had nothing done" and "The Weeknd really came for Bella in the 'Save Your Tears' music video damn"
More teased: "the weeknd after bella gave him her doctor’s number" and "The Weeknd wanted to mock bella but he should’ve done a better job. Bella’s face is far from botched by!!"
