New York City, NY – November 2, 2023
Amidst swirling rumors and speculation surrounding their marriage, British singer Lily Allen and “Stranger Things” actor David Harbour put on a united front as they were spotted enjoying a basketball game together at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Wednesday night.
The couple, who have been facing rumors of a possible split after Allen, 38, unfollowed Harbour, 48, on social media, seemed unperturbed by the speculation as they cheered on the Cleveland Cavaliers during their 95-89 victory against the New York Knicks. Allen, known for her hit song “Smile,” appeared in high spirits, sporting a beige jumper, black trousers, and trainers, while Harbour opted for black trousers and a grey T-shirt.
Speculation about their relationship status intensified last week when Allen unfollowed Harbour on Instagram, leading fans and media outlets to speculate about a possible rift between the couple. However, Harbour continues to follow Allen on the platform, adding to the confusion.
Insiders had previously claimed that the couple had been “living separate lives” for the past few months. A source revealed, “Lily and David have barely been together for the past three months and have been living separate lives. When she was in London for the Pillowman, David was spotted at one performance in July before Lily was left by herself. In her downtime, Lily would be with mates in London or her kids. When she went back to the US with them, there was no sign of David.”
Further fueling the rumors, Harbour was recently seen attending the Thom Browne 20th-anniversary dinner without his wife. However, their joint appearance at the basketball game this week seems to suggest otherwise.
Despite the ongoing speculation, the couple celebrated their third wedding anniversary recently. Allen marked the occasion by sharing a throwback photo from their wedding day on Instagram, captioning it: “Three years with this guy, second best decision I ever made. First was that dress.”
Allen and Harbour were first linked in January 2019 when they attended the BAFTA Tea Party together. Their relationship became public when Allen was photographed wearing an engagement ring in November of the same year.
As fans continue to speculate about the state of their marriage, Lily Allen and David Harbour’s public outing at the basketball game offers a glimpse of hope for those rooting for the couple’s happiness. Only time will tell how their relationship unfolds in the midst of intense media scrutiny.
