Comedian Chris Rock, 57, and 43-year-old actress Lake Bell have allegedly gone public with their ongoing romance after being spotted having a fancy lunch date.
Rock and Bell were photographed on July 3, eating together at a popular Santa Monica brunch restaurant. Although there was no obvious romantic PDA, aside from the two holding hands, they were smiling and having a good time, according to a TMZ photographer that captured them.
The photo taken by TMZ showed Rock and Bell in almost matching outfits – both donning white t-shirts. Rock – the former star of the hit show Everybody Hates Chris wore a black tennis cap. Bell’s hair was loose, and both looked to be thoroughly enjoying each other’s company.
This isn’t the first time that the pair was seen together. In photos taken by Page Six, the Grown-ups actor and the Bless This Mess actress were caught leaving a dinner date at a particular celebrity hot spot called Giorgio Baldi on Saturday night, July 2. Sources of PageSix told the outlet that the couple arrived at around 8:45 P.M. and were with each other inside for almost two whole hours.
Eyewitnesses told reporters that Rock and Bell walked with linked hands when exiting the upscale romantic Italian restaurant. However, they quickly let go of each other when they saw photographers watching them. These two events in such quick succession are enough to prove to fans that the pair are probably in a serious relationship and paparazzi are eating it up. Both have denied making public statements about their association status.
