Chris Rock and Lake Bell fuel romance rumors as they're spotted on dinner date in LA
Chris Rock and Lake Bell are adding more fuel to those romance rumors.
In exclusive pics obtained by Page Six, the pair were spotted leaving a dinner date at celebrity hot spot Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, Calif., Saturday night.
The comedian, 57, wore a white sweater with matching white pants, which he accessorized with brown dress shoes and aviator sunglasses tucked into his shirt.
Bell, 43, opted for an all-black ensemble, featuring a wrap top with a plunging neckline and black jeans.
The “Bless This Mess” star completed her chic look with black slingback heels and her brunette tresses styled in loose waves.
We’re told the duo arrived around 8:45 p.m. and dined for almost two hours. According to an eyewitness, Rock and Bell were holding hands as they walked out of the upscale Italian restaurant, but immediately let go of each other when they saw the photographers.
Reps for Rock and Bell did not immediately respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.
Their Fourth of July outing comes less than one month after the two were spotted together at Busch Stadium in St. Louis for a Cardinals game.
The rumored pair were hanging out in a box together, as seen in footage obtained by TMZ at the time, though they appeared to keep a low profile at the event.
While Rock may be keeping quiet about his personal life, the “Grown Ups” actor hasn’t been shy when it comes to cracking jokes about the infamous 2022 Oscars smackdown.
After Will Smith slapped him onstage during the 94th Academy Awards in March, Rock has since quipped that words don’t hurt as much as being hit in the face.
“I’m OK, if anybody was wondering,” Rock said during his “Ego Death” show at UK’s Royal Albert Hall in May. “I got most of my hearing back.”
Rock noted that he wouldn’t be discussing the altercation between him and Smith, 53, any further — at least not until he secured a comedy special.
She and the comedian first sparked romance rumors when they attended a baseball game last month.“People expect me to talk about the bulls–t. I’m not going to talk about it right now. I’ll get to it eventually — on Netflix,” he said at the time.
“Anyone who says ‘words hurt’ — has never been punched in the face.”
