The couple was also seen together at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on Sunday for Super Bowl LIV, ET confirms.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported at the time that some were referring to the man as "Michael" during the course of the evening and that Gaga didn't appear to be trying to hide her affection for her date.
