Adele has been dating boyfriend Rich Paul since 2021, but who is he and how did they meet?
Adele is back in our lives after releasing comeback album ’30’ in November and we’re so happy about it.
The ‘Oh My God’ songstress spilled a little on her love life in the new album, mostly about her divorce from husband Simon Konecki and hints at her new relationship with boyfriend Rich Paul.
The couple have so far kept their relationship out of the limelight, with Adele having to take to Instagram to confirm they’re still together after reports their romance was under strain.
“Rich sends his love,” she nonchalantly included in a post confirming her performance at The BRITs.
Not long after the epic shut down, the Adele sparked rumours she and Rich are engaged after she donned a huge diamond ring at the BRITs!
Rich is a superstar sports agent whose client list includes LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Ben Simmons.
He’s worked as a sports agent since 2022, when he worked at an artist agency. 10 years later, he founded his own agency called Klutch Sports Group.
Adele sparked rumours she's engaged when she attended The BRIT Awards, after showing off a huge diamond ring which is reported to have cost upwards of $2 million!
And she only fuelled speculation she and boyfriend Rich are engaged when she joined The Graham Norton Show a few days later.
When Graham quizzed her on the ever-growing engagement rumours, Adele responded: "If I was would I ever tell anyone if I was or wasn’t?"
She's certainly keeping us all guessing! However, she did also admit she'd like to have more children, leading fans to think she and Rich may be planning to settle down.
Rich is 40 years old; he was born on 16 December 1981.
Rich is a dad of three. He’s pretty quiet on his personal life, but he posted a photo of his daughter on her graduation in May 2020.
It’s believed Adele has met Rich’s kids and he’s met her son, Angelo, who she welcomed with ex-husband Simon Konecki in 2012.
Adele and Rich were friends before they started dating around summer 2021. She told Rolling Stone they first met at a mutual friend’s birthday party – on the dance floor in classic romance fashion.
They became friends before things turned romantic, with the singer telling Vogue: “He was always there, I just didn't see him."
She sweetly added: “I just love being around him. I just love it."
