Adele skipped the glitzy Met Gala in favour of grabbing burgers at In-N-Out as she enjoyed low-key date night with boyfriend Rich Paul in LA
Adele opted out of the prestigious Met Gala this year in favour of a low-key burger date at In-N-Out with her boyfriend Rich Paul on Monday night.
The singer, 33, looked casual during the outing, after ducking out of the annual fashion gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Adele donned a black face mask and swept her locks back into a claw clip while being snapped by a fan in the burger joint in Los Angeles.

Adele wore a black jacket and black top while appearing to be going make up free.
She wore subtle gold hoops, while chatting with her 39-year-old sports agent beau who wore a blue T-shirt and a green cap.
It’s not unusual for Adele to swerve the high profile event as the singer has never once attended the red carpet gala in her many years of fame.
The star regularly avoids glitzy parties in favour of more low key outings with her nearest and dearest.

And swathes of the songstress’ fans took to the comments of the photographs to praise her decision to snub the A-list party.
One wrote: ‘She’s the realest of them all’ while another simply penned: ‘Icon.’
Another applauded the singer by skipping the star-studded event by writing: ‘She thought correctly on this day’ and another wrote ‘she has her priorities right.’
The couple confirmed their romance last month after being spotted on a dinner date, after going public in July when they sat court side at game five of the NBA Finals in Phoenix, Arizona.
In July, a friend of the couple stated that their romance is ‘casual’ and they aren’t ‘super-serious’ yet.
The insider told People: ‘It’s not super serious, but they’re having a good time. They have mutual friends in common, so that’s been nice. She’s having fun and being social.
Praise: Many fans applauded the singer for skipping the event
‘[Adele] has relaxed a lot. She’s not quite as private as when she was married.
‘She is living her life and doing great. She is having a great summer with [her son] Angelo. They are spending most of their time in LA.’
Paul is a sports agent to several high-profile basketball stars including LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons and John Wall.
He is worth an estimated $46 million and has negotiated more than $1 billion in active deals for his high-profile clients during his career.
In 2020, he made Forbes’ list of the world’s top 10 most powerful sports agents, hitting No. 9 on the list. He was classed No. 2 globally in basketball. He was also featured on the 2020 Ebony Power 100 List.
He is the founder of Klutch Sports, part of United Talent Agency (UTA), which leapt up 23 places on the list of the world’s most valuable sports agencies within a five year period, following Paul’s involvement. Paul now leads UTA’s sports division.
Adele finalized her divorce from ex Simon Konecki in March and the pair share custody of son Angelo, eight.
