Adele has waived this year’s prestigious Met Gala in favor of a low-key burger date at In-N-Out with her boyfriend Rich Paul on Monday night.
The 33-year-old singer looked casual during the outing after she ducked into the annual fashion gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Adele donned a black face mask and swept her locks back into a claw clip as she was snapped by a fan in the burger joint.

The couple confirmed their romance last month after they were spotted on a dinner date, after going public in July as they sat by the court side during game five of the NBA Finals in Phoenix, Arizona.
In July, a friend of the couple stated that their romance is “casual” and that they are not “super serious” yet.
The insider told People: “It’s not super serious, but they’re having a good time. They have mutual friends, so that was nice. She has fun and is social.

‘[Adele] much relaxed. She’s not as private as when she was married.
“She lives her life and is doing great. She has a great summer with [her son] Angelo. They spend most of their time in LA.”
Paul is a sports agent for several high-profile basketball stars, including LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons and John Wall.
He is estimated to be worth $46 million and has negotiated more than $1 billion in active deals for his high-profile clients during his career.
In 2020, he made the Forbes list of the world’s top 10 most powerful sports agents, reaching number 9 on the list. He was ranked No. 2 worldwide in basketball. He was also on the 2020 Ebony Power 100 list.
He is the founder of Klutch Sports, part of United Talent Agency (UTA), which has risen 23 places in the list of the world’s most valuable sports agencies within five years following Paul’s involvement. Paul now heads UTA’s sports department.
Adele finalized her divorce from ex Simon Konecki in March and the couple share custody of son Angelo, eight.
