Adele and Rich Paul Sit Courtside at Basketball Game for Cuddly Date Night

The marriage rumors continue to swirl for Adele and Rich Paul, who spent Wednesday evening sitting courtside at Arena to see the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Dallas Mavericks.

The happy couple were all smiles, laughs, and shocked faces as they watched the Mavericks ultimately take home the W with a score of 104-101. Three-pointers weren’t the only action in the stadium—a gold band glimmered and shone on Adele’s left ring finger.

The couple first sparked marriage rumors in September after Adele referred to Paul as her “husband” and to herself as his “wife.” She allegedly confirmed the news at Alan Carr’s comedy show in Los Angeles on Saturday. When the comedian asked the crowd if anyone had gotten married recently, Adele supposedly shouted “I did.”


The couple made their public debut in July 2021 at another courtside game. They were pictured getting cuddly at the NBA finals between the Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks.

For their Thanksgiving Eve date night, the “Easy on Me” singer leaned into earth tones, wearing a fall outfit that was equally cozy as it was trendy. Adele paired a cream cable knit sweater with olive green parachute pants, white ankle socks, New Balance sneakers, and a brown purse. She elevated the outfit with lots of gold bling, including layered necklaces, chunky earrings, and stacked rings. Adele glammed things up with black winged eyeliner, her signature full, fluttery lashes, a matte mauve lip, and shiny black nails. She finished off her look by pulling her blonde hair back into a sleek low bun.

Paul sported a black jacket, gray trousers, and a black baseball cap, which he also paired with some New Balance sneakers.
