Adele Made a Rare Public Appearance at the NBA Finals in Arizona


Adele stepped out on Saturday night to watch the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns play in Game Five of the 2021 NBA Finals at Footprint Center in Phoenix. In what is a rare public outing for the singer, she was seen masked up while watching the game from court-side seats. She wore her long hair in a middle part, paired with a black Vivienne Westwood jacket with tan and white spots over a black shirt and leggings. She matched the look with simple black heels.

Per US Weekly, Adele was joined by LeBron James’s agent, Rich Paul, who sat to her left. She was seen pulling down her mask, while laughing with and smiling at Paul. According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the two are dating. Neither have confirmed this report.

“Rich Paul brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele,” Windhorst said on his podcast after the game, per USA Today. “Rich Paul is at the game with Adele. … This is the first time that they’ve come out in public together. So this will be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow.”

This sighting comes after Adele has been getting particularly sporty on her Instagram grid. From home, she cheered on Team England in the Euro 2020 Final. Italy took home the win, but Adele was still proud of her home team.

“You did us so proud! You brought our game home and brought us all together 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 ♥️” she wrote.

Earlier this month, Page Six reported that she and her previously rumored boyfriend, Skepta, were seen shopping at Cabazon Outlets in California.

“She was sitting watching him while he was picking sweaters, pants, trying on jackets and coats and having the employees help him,” the source said. “She was giving him feedback and saying what she thought he looked great in. It was cute that just waiting and being a normal girlfriend while he looked. He must have shopped for 45 minutes.”
