Adele's big NBA date night sparks more relationship rumors!

Phoenix, Arizona - Public appearances by Adele are rare, so her appearance at an NBA game was pretty unique – but the fact that she wasn't there alone took things to another level altogether!

No one really knows what the Rolling in the Deep singer has planned for her love life these days. Adele (33) claimed to be single earlier in the year, but just last week was spotted on a shopping date with rapper Skepta (38) who is most famous for his song, Shutdown.

And now there's this appearance alongside Rich Paul, LeBron James's agent, with whom she watched Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks in Phoenix on Sunday night.

She looked pretty happy next to the 39-year-old as they cheered on the players. According to PageSix, ESPN sports anchor Brian Windhorst referred to Adele as Paul's girlfriend on his podcast about the game.

"This is the first time they've been out in public together," he said, "so it's going to be all over the tabloids, especially in England."

It's no wonder that the rumor mill has revved up. But there were no clear indications of a relationship between the two during the game. There was no PDA and neither has said anything about the rumors so far.

Adele was easily the best dressed person at the game: she wore an elegant cow-print velvet coat by designer Vivienne Westwood paired simply with a black top and slim-fitting black slacks, topped off by high velvet sandals by Gianvito Rossi and a belt bag by Louis Vuitton.
