Abel Tesfaye, widely recognized as The Weeknd, has been making significant waves not just as a pop singer but also in the world of television, starring in the HBO drama series, “The Idol,” where he portrays the character Tedros, a self-help guru and cult leader. Tesfaye’s multifaceted career spans both music and acting, with notable successes in both realms, including the release of five studio albums since 2013 and his ongoing world tour titled “After Hours til Dawn.”
Despite encountering several controversies throughout his career, The Weeknd’s popularity continues to soar, demonstrated by his acclaimed performance at the 2020 MTV VMAs. However, a common curiosity surrounding public figures is their physical attributes, particularly their height.
Abel Tesfaye stands at 5 feet and 6 inches tall (169.5cm), as reported by his Celeb Heights profile. This height, while approximately average for Ethiopian males, is slightly shorter than the average height for Canadian men. In comparison to some of his A-list peers in the music industry, such as Kanye West at 5 feet 8 inches and Justin Bieber at 5 feet 7 inches, The Weeknd is relatively shorter.
When photographed alongside his former girlfriend Bella Hadid, who stands at 5 feet 7 inches, The Weeknd appears notably shorter. His current partner, Simi Khadra, a DJ and entrepreneur, shares a height similar to that of Hadid.
Despite these comparisons, The Weeknd’s height appears inconsequential to him or his love interests. His fans admire him for his musical talent and artistic abilities, emphasizing that his stature doesn’t diminish the appreciation for his work. Ultimately, his talent and music remain the focal points of his widespread acclaim.
