The Weeknd Almost Gets Hit By Falling Stage Equipment, Doesn't Flinch

The Weeknd is one lucky man (and it's just because he's dating Bella Hadid).
The "Call Out My Name" singer (whose real name is Abel Tesfaye) narrowly avoided what could have been a horrible accident during his Sunday (October 21) concert in Mexico City. Abel was nearly struck by a falling object while performing "Party Monster." In a video, published by TMZ, you can see him start to sing the track as an object falls from the top of the stage, only missing him by inches. What's really impressive about the video though is the fact that Abel didn't even flinch (like at all).
While the cause of the falling object is not yet known, weather conditions may have played a role given it was raining during most of the show, TMZ reports.
When the "Starboy" singer is not dodging falling stage equipment, he's spending time with his on-again girlfriend, Bella. Most recently, he went all out with an Instagram tribute for the Victoria's Secret model's 22nd birthday by posting a whopping ten photos of them in pure coupled-up bliss.
"Happy birthday Angel," he captioned a series of pictures and video that showed the couple smooching, and hugging all across the globe. From photos of the two kissing in random bars to the pair locking lips inside Tokyo's famous Team Lab Borderless exhibit, the "Starboy" singer made sure to show off the different aspects of their loving relationship.
Abel and Bella split back in November 2016 after dating for nearly a year and a half. However, the two sparked reconciliation rumors in April when they were spotted packing on the PDA a Coachella. “The Weeknd and Bella were sitting on each other’s laps and all over each other all night long,” an onlooker told People at the time. “They definitely looked like they were fully back together.” Bella later denied the insiders claims, commenting on a photo of the two from that night, “It wasn’t me.” However, in May the exes looked like quite the couple after being spotted kissing while at an after party in Cannes, France. Nearly two months later, Abel seemed to confirm their on-again romance by sharing photos and videos of the two spending time together in Japan.
