Adele, Rich Paul Have Date Night at Lakers Game


Adele and Rich Paul’s romance thrives courtside!

The singer, 35, and sports agent, 42, enjoyed a date night on Saturday, April 27, sitting side-by-side to watch the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Denver Nuggets at Arena in Los Angeles.

The couple had a front-row view as the Lakers defeated the Nuggets, a welcome outcome for the agent, who represents the team’s star player, LeBron James.

Absent from their date-night attire, however, were Lakers colors. Instead, the pair showed off their chic couple’s style courtside.

Adele kept her look monochrome with a black suit layered over a crisp white T-shirt, which she paired with a matching white handbag and pumps.

Her sports agent beau opted for a sporty yet Western-inspired look, rocking black leather pants and shoes, which he wore with a jean bomber jacket, baseball cap and chunky silver chain.

The couple were both stylish and animated as they watched the game. They previously made their first public appearance together while sitting courtside at the NBA Finals in July 2021.

Since sparking dating rumors nearly three years ago, the musician and Paul have grown a lot together.

Last November, as marriage rumors about the pair swirled, a source told PEOPLE that Adele could not be happier.

She is ecstatically happy with Rich and has never been more buoyant, inspired and secure,” the insider told PEOPLE, adding, “We all want to be as happy as Adele.”

After the marriage rumors — which began after Adele called Paul her “husband” during a Las Vegas show — made headlines, Paul addressed them in an interview with CBS Mornings’ Gayle King.

“When I see her, should I say ‘Hi, Mrs. Paul?’ ” King asked, and the agent replied, “You can say whatever you want. We’re in a good space. Happy.”

And while the couple keeps their relationship relatively private — save for their courtside dates — Adele has also spoken about Paul publicly before.

In candid interviews with Vogue and British Vogue for their November 2021 cover stories, the star said that “Rich just incredibly arrived.”

“I don’t feel anxious or nervous or frazzled. It’s quite the opposite,” she said at the time, adding, “It’s wild.” 

Elsewhere in the interview, she also revealed that the two originally met at a party a couple of years before, when she joked to him — while “a bit drunk” — that he should represent her.

“Do you want to sign me? I’m an athlete now,” she recalled telling him, before adding, “He’s great. He’s so f—— funny. He’s so smart, you know.”
