Lionel Richie, 73, makes rare appearance with GF Lisa Parigi, 33, after lunch with friends in Malibu
MALIBU, CALIFORNIA: Lionel Richie and his girlfriend Lisa Parigi appeared in casual fashion as they stepped out of Nobu Malibu after lunch with friends. The pair have kept their romance very low-key after announcing it in 2014. However, their rare public appearances have always been eye-grabbing.
The 'American Idol' judge and his model girlfriend stepped out in a relaxed fit for the outing with friends at the Japanese restaurant. The musician, 73, looked slick as he donned dark gray jeans along with a white basic tee and sneakers. He completed the ensemble with a grey shirt and baseball cap that matched his pants and a stylish set of sunglasses.
The music icon also wore a pendant necklace along with a bracelet and smart watch on his wrist.
His longtime girlfriend Lisa, 33, stunned in a black lace bodysuit and blue wide-length jeans with a black belt around her waist. She wore a long white shrug over her apparel and carried a black sling bag. The model appeared with straightened hair and opted for minimal makeup with single eyeliner and peach blush. She accessorized her look with silver rings and bangles as she walked alongside Richie.
Parigi is a model and businesswoman from Switzerland. She founded her own lifestyle brand 'The Estate Collection' and writes a blog called 'Dream Design Discover'. Richie and Parigi have spent 8 years together and like to keep their relationship away from the public eye. However, they are often found appreciating each other on their social media.
The entrepreneur has also established a home collection called Lionel Richie Home featuring her partner. She posted a video sharing glimpses of the bit and wrote, "NEW DROP! // @lionelrichiehome collection is inspired by Storytelling, Travel and Music…Presentation without Ostentation! Comfortable and Practical with Layers of Soft Velvet Textures and Timeless Silhouettes. WELCOME HOME!"
Richie loves taking part in Parigi's interests. They were recently spotted taking tours in book museums and stores. They also share an incredible bond and do not hold back when questioned about their relationship. Richie spoke to People about his girlfriend in 2019, "At this time in my life when you can be so jaded about things, [my girlfriend] Lisa kind of makes everything feel a bit safe."
When asked if the 'Stuck On You' hitmaker is willing to walk down the aisle once again, he told the news outlet, "There’s always big plans. Do I have an exact time on this? Oh, hell no. I don’t. But there is light at the end of the tunnel. I’m sure."
