Cape Town - The Weeknd, is that you?

The 29-year-old singer debuted his new look at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival on Monday 9 September, E News reports.

The Starboy singer, who made his first public appearance since his split with supermodel Bella Hadid, donned a fitted navy-blue suit, paired with a white button-down and dark brown shoes.

But it was his facial hair that caught fans’ attention.

The Can’t Feel My Face singer got rid of his beard and sported a new moustache, paired with a new hairdo.

According to an insider, the pair split because of their hectic schedules, People reports.

"Their schedules have been too hard to coordinate and he’s focusing on finishing and promoting his album," a source said.  

"They still have a great deal of love for one another and will remain friends."
