Celebrity sightings at professional sporting events are nothing new, but reggaeton fans took notice Monday night (March 21) when Bad Bunny made an appearance at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to watch the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets in action.
It was a return to the arena for Bad Bunny, who performed a pair of concerts there this past weekend for his El Último Tour Del Mundo.
The superstar showed up to the game dressed in an off-white suit with black illustrations, platform shoes, outback shape straw hat, and Marine Serre-brand facemask and accessorized with a light blue Chanel handbag. He was accompanied by his girlfriend, Gabriela Berlingeri.
At one point, the crowd inside the arena cheered when Bad Bunny and Gabriela were shown on the jumbotron. Bad Bunny flashed a peace sign at the camera.
Sitting courtside, Bad Bunny and Gabriela got an up-close look at Nets star Kevin Durant leading his team to victory over the Utah Jazz, 114-106. Durant had 37 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists. With all the different projects Bad Bunny does to keep himself busy these days – from footwear design to wrestling – it’s almost surprising that he didn’t suit up for the game himself.
Once the game was over, Bad Bunny and Gabriela were whisked away, but not before he was able to give a fan in the stand a fist bump.
Recently, a Pollstar Global Concert Pulse list revealed that Bad Bunny holds the top spot for the average box office gross for musicians on tour. Last weekend, Bad Bunny ticket prices were a topic of conversation during Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
