James Hetfield Attends The Gershwin Prize With New Girlfriend

James Hetfield has joined the red carpet for an event with his new girlfriend.

The Metallica frontman divorced his partner, Francesca Tomasi after 25 years of marriage. The ex-couple chose to part ways on good terms, and since then, Hetfield’s love life has been a topic of fascination.

The rocker and his girlfriend recently appeared on the red carpet at the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize dinner before going on the road for their tour.

In the pictures shared on Instagram, the rocker stands next to his girlfriend Adriana Gillett smiling. One fan shared his thoughts about Gillett while implying how much Hetfield ‘aged’ in 3 years:

“He’s aged so much in the last 3 years. Possible Francesca was better.”

Along with Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Rob Trujillo joined the red carpet. The fans quickly noticed Lars Ulrich was missing. As a result, it caused curiosity among them. One fan stated Ulrich was too busy eating so he couldn’t attend the red carpet. Another asked if he died.

When Did The Couple Start Dating?

Hetfield and his fashion designer girlfriend were caught on camera together back in April last year. Although these images offered a peek into Hetfield’s personal life, the identity of his new girlfriend was kept a secret until then.

It wasn’t until Gillett’s Instagram post that the mystery was solved. The post revealed her name and her affection for the Metallica singer. The post Hetfield’s girlfriend shared both put an end to speculations about her identity and confirmed their relationship.
