He was seen in a picture with jaden smith. Jaden smith is in flats wile the weeknd is in some lifts. Even thought he is in lifts jaden is clearly taller. Considering jaden and weeknd are listed at the same Heights means something is wrong here. Three was at least an inch difference between them, maybe more.

Amanda, Selena is 5'4.5 maximum. She's at least 3 inches shorter than Justin.

Abel is likely nearer 5'7 and tends to wear blocky shoes himself
lemme said on 2/Feb/17
5'6.25 possible?
Amanda said on 30/Jan/17
Now that he's dating Selena Gomez I am confused. She is about 5'5/6 and wearing heels he still looks taller.... and
letsbefair said on 29/Jan/17
this is why they say 5'7 gets you out of being short, and weeknd's pretty close to it, especially with the hair he sports...
Redus said on 23/Jan/17
This one always confused the bagoogle out of me. His height is different Everytime I see him. I can conclude he isn't above 5'10 but I'm not sure on the exact height. My best guess is probably 5'7 -5'8
Nova176 said on 19/Jan/17
I agree DetroitMichigan, I think he has to be wearing lifts in those VS shows. His height is FAR too inconsistent. During Victoria Secret he looks 5'9 next to 5'10 Adriana Lima in 5 inch pumps. In those shoes she should easily be pushing 6'2-3, but abel manages to look VERY close (definitely eye level) with her. I never seen a 5'6 dude manage that well against a 5'10+ woman in heels standing tall. Hell he doesn't even have the proportions of a 5'7 dude but he can look 5'9.

But then again he holds up well against Jimmy Fallon, he actually held up better than someone like Kit Harington who's 5'7

But with Bieber he appears 5'5.5-6 same with 154 Ariana Grande.
My conclusion is that probably close to 5'7" in actuality and wears some lifts in those shows that get him up to a decent 5'8.5 standing height and also tends to have lose posture when not preforming.

I am about 176.5 cms but my frame is big and I give off a 5'10 impression. These guys are usually thin so on TV they will look always 5'9 but in person 5'5-5'6 and 130-150 lbs. I just think me being bigger effects my career as a journalist. Being skinny is good for everyones career.
DetroitMichigan said on 3/Jan/17
His case is very strange. During Victoria Secrets concert he looks quite average near all this "tall" models in heels. Also near Future listed at 6'2 he looks 5'9. But near Justin Bieber and Drake he seems 5'6 at best
mason said on 29/Dec/16
woah he's tiny when I saw his face I thought he'd be a good 5'9 haha.
Same said on 10/Dec/16
Same. I never drop to a flat 5ft6 at night. At worst 5ft6 and 3/8. Congrats for taking first place on celebheights weeknd!
same said on 5/Dec/16
maybe 5'6 at night rob?
Editor Rob: same, I am not so sure he'd drop that low.
Marie said on 2/Dec/16
When I saw him on the AMA'a he looked 5'2 lol
Jayden said on 25/Nov/16
He's a pretty short guy maybe even 168cm
malik99 said on 23/Nov/16
looked 1-2 cm taller than margot robbie on snl and is noticeably shorter than bieber,167.5-168 is fair
javk said on 15/Nov/16
5ft5 for the weeknd !!
Peter175 said on 15/Nov/16
He's not even as tall as Bieber and Bieber isn't even as tall as Kanye. There is about a 0.75-1 inch difference between each. Kanye would give off a very average height impressive IRL, whereas Abel would look in that "pretty short range" and bieber would look "a little short"
BilboBaggins said on 12/Nov/16
I'd say he's close to 5' 8", personally. He looks to be in the same height range as Kanye West, IMO. Rob, did you find any quote from The Weeknd himself about his height?
Editor Rob: Bilbo, I've not seen or heard him give a height.
paul said on 7/Nov/16
5'11 it's a joke for him he always look as a short guy

Rr said on 7/Sep/16

The Expert said on 12/Aug/16
5'6 = minimum height
5'6.5 = medium height
5'7 = max for him
James said on 11/Aug/16
@Tim he's nowhere near 5'8"
Click Here
With 172-174cm Mario Gotze who's slouching, yet is still atleast 1 inch taller
no said on 31/Jul/16
@tim

he looks an easy 5 inches shorter than drake minimum in every picture. drake who's not even 6' the top of his head doesn't even reach the bottom of drake's nose.
mweccer said on 28/Jul/16
this sounds about right i would say he is around 5'6. he looks tall in photos but i met him back in the day and he was pretty short and compared to me who is 5'9 he looked around 3 inches shorter than me , maybe more
Tim said on 23/Jul/16
Im preety sure he is around 5'8. He definitly looks taller than 5'6. He looks 3-4 inches shorter than drake whos 6 ft making abel around 5'9ish
weew said on 15/Jul/16
the 5'6.5 that can look 5'8, that hairdo is a genius for shorties
MD said on 14/Jun/16
Kendrick Lamar is listed at a tops 5'4.5" here and is really closer to 5'4" flat, and Torey Lanez as I showed on the Height Request page isn't even a full 5'6". You're boosting each of these guys by at least half and inch.
XO said on 11/Jun/16
There's a pic of him with Kendrick Lamar(5'5) and he's a couple inches taller....

Also has a pic with Tory Lanez (5'6) and he's an inch taller than him so 5'7 seems about right
John Cena said on 10/May/16
5'5.5
TJE said on 13/Apr/16
@Peter175

I second that. 5'6-5'6.5 is his range.
Peter175 said on 10/Apr/16
Closer to a flat 5'6 than a flat 5'7 no doubt. I think 5'6.25 is the best guess for him
Warren said on 16/Feb/16
omfg!!! I can't believe this! I thought he's 5'10 or more all the time.
his body looks not short for me.
Cthulu said on 10/Feb/16
Here he is next to 5ft11 Dicaprio: Click Here

If Leo were standing completely straight, the top of Abel's head(excluding his tall hair) would be below Leo's eyeline. There does seem to be more than 4 inches between them.

EzioAuditore711 said on 9/Feb/16
Looks tiny. 5'6.5" might be right.
Yuvalxo said on 25/Nov/15
he's always wearing a rather flat sneakers and probably without any lifts unlike most the celebrities in my opinion
Allie said on 16/Nov/15
Well.. he's now 5'8 on Google.. closest to the truth I guess.
Weezy said on 15/Nov/15
That 6'0 listing on google was a joke... Especially after I seen him with Drake
Click Here
And here's picture with 5'9 Mario Gotze

Guess 5'7 is about right, although he might be an incher shorter.. Somewhere in that range
slothee said on 10/Nov/15
Downgraded yet again. I remember seeing him listed as 5'11" on Google and thought "....what?! That can't be right."
andred said on 6/Nov/15
5'5-5'6 is about right. 2 inches shorter than Sheeran.
ShortRussianDude said on 28/Oct/15
definitely not a full 5'7 Looks 1.5 inches taller than 5'5 spike lee and near 4 inches shorter than 5'10 diddy.

5'6.5 I think is fair.
the shredder said on 16/Oct/15
At least 5'6 , but he looks 5'6.
MD said on 12/Oct/15
Maybe not even this listing. With 5'10" P Diddy:

can't see anything over 5'6 for this guy. proportionately long legs make him appear taller on his own but next to anyone else it's obvious

he constantly wears very thick-heeled boots as well and probably does in each of those pictures. 5'5-5'6
TJE said on 11/Sep/15
Hard to tell his weight, but his choice of clothing makes me suspicious. Still, he's gotta be at least 150.
Weeknd said on 9/Sep/15
Hes a small framed guy. 160 does shock me.
the shredder said on 9/Sep/15
He looks less than me at 160 , my weight varies , I am 5'6 though.
MD said on 8/Sep/15
Huh? I'd be shocked were he under 160lbs at this height. He generally hides his weight pretty well, but he's not a thin or even average physique, he just knows how to dress for his physique.
Aza said on 7/Sep/15
Good shout....he looks listed height.
Slothee said on 6/Sep/15
What made you downgrade him? Wasn't he originally listed as 5'8"?
[Editor Rob: he looks more 5ft 7]
the shredder said on 5/Sep/15
No way is he over 160 being 5'7.
Aza said on 5/Sep/15
'He's got a pineapple on his head!' ..... Sorry could not resist!
5'11 flat in louisville said on 5/Sep/15
Looks an inch taller than 5'6 Kylie Jenner and 2 inches taller than 5'5 Kendrick Lamar. 5'7 or 5'6.5 sounds better
height24 said on 4/Sep/15
but wait tyga is 5'7.5 so it means that the weeknd is really more 5'6 ish according to the pic
the shredder said on 4/Sep/15
He looks less than Ed Sheren , 5'7.5 tops
TJE said on 3/Sep/15
173 is a bit much. Looks 172 max to me.
MD said on 3/Sep/15
Nice find, height24. 5'8" is way too tall a listing. He's 5'7" and that's the very top of the scale. He's started off a full inch too tall.
alex said on 2/Sep/15
I agree he looks more like 5'7-5'7.5
height24 said on 1/Sep/15
he is around 5'7 max
Here is a picture of him with tyga

MD said on 31/Aug/15
He is not 5'8".
Request1 said on 31/Aug/15
Rob, if you look up Drake and Weeknd, there are many pictures where Weeknd looks way shorter. Like, definitely below 5'8 range if Drake is 5'11. 75". What's up with those pictures?
[Editor Rob: there is a good chance weeknd could dip into 5ft 7.5 range.]
Andred said on 30/Aug/15
Looks 5'7 with Sia.
Alex said on 30/Aug/15
Looks 5'7
Guest said on 29/Aug/15
Gets listed 5'11 yet he looks few inches shorter than 6'0 Drake. 5'8 it is
alejandro92 said on 29/Aug/15
Rob would you say he's got a big head for someone who's your height? I think his head looks a bit big for a 5'8 guy.
[Editor Rob: doesn't look that big, his hairstyle though maybe adds to an illusion?]
Height183 said on 29/Aug/15
Rob, Is Drake looking more 6'0'' here?

Click Here
[Editor Rob: he can look a fraction over it]
!? said on 28/Aug/15
He's around 5'6. There are pictures of him being shorter than 5'8 footballer Goetze and 5'8 rapper T.I.
He's also dwarfed by Drake.
the shredder said on 28/Aug/15
WOW , Shorter than I though lol. Rob what you guess his weight?
[Editor Rob: he might be over 160 near 170 range]
Arch Stanton said on 28/Aug/15
Jason Lee (remember him Rob from Nottingham Forest haha) called to say he wants his hair back! "He's got a pineapple on his head, he's got a pineapple on his head!". Gives a shorter impression above.
MaryAnne said on 28/Aug/15
OMG!!!! thanks Rob!!! but for some reason i thought he was taller maybe its just the hair..
