AceShowbiz - Adele looked shy when she heard her new single "Easy On Me" was played at a basketball game she attended with her boyfriend Rich Paul. As the song was blasted out to the whole arena, the "Rolling in the Deep" hitmaker was caught hiding behind her bag.
On Tuesday night, October 18, the 33-year-old singer and her sports agent boyfriend, Rich, were spotted in the VIP section at the Los Angeles Lakers season opener against the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center. She was watching a game when the familiar opening chords were played for the crowd.
Adele, who is releasing her fourth album 30 in November, made a series of playful facial expressions while the track played. She was also quick to hide behind her tiny Louis Vuitton handbag as she pretended to sing along for the crowd and try to hide her face from the TV cameras.
For the basketball game date, the award-winning star looked glam in a brown Louis Vuitton coat over a matching leather suit. Rich, in the meantime, sported a velvet brown jacket. He also wore matching trousers. The couple took in the game with Justin Bieber, Usher, Kevin Hart, James Corden, Lily Collins, Jack Nicholson and Kid Cudi.
Of the couple's date night, a source spilled that "Adele and Rich Paul were chatting the whole night and seemed very close." The eyewitness further added that "both were very engaged in the game."
Adele and Rich have been dating since May. Then in September, the pair made their relationship Instagram official as Adele posted a pic of them at NBA star Anthony Davis' wedding to Marlen P.
Earlier this month, Adele spoke about her romance for the first time in an interview with Vogue. "We're very happy. And I didn't get dragged along to the [basketball game the other night] because that's his line of work. I was like, 'We're going to the game,' " the "Turning Tables" singer told the magazine. "I didn't mean to go public with it. I just wanted to go to the game. I just love being around him. I just love it."
Elsewhere in the interview, Adele said that "Rich just incredibly arrived." The chart-topper shared that whenever she's with him, she doesn't "feel anxious or nervous or frazzled." She added, "It's quite the opposite. It's wild. I'm a 33-year-old divorced mother of a son, who's actually in charge. The last thing I need is someone who doesn't know where they're at, or what they want. I know what I want. And I really know what I don't want."
