Adele is now social-media official with her boyfriend, Rich Paul. This weekend, the “When We Were Young” singer seemingly confirmed that she’s dating the sports agent when she shared a black-and-white picture of them together in a photo booth.
The pic was taken while attending basketball star Anthony Davis’ wedding in Los Angeles last night. The British star dropped a series of photos from her outing with Rich Paul and put their picture at the end showcasing her outfit from the wedding. She captioned the series with a simple red-heart emoji.
Adele wore a black Schiaparelli gown with cloud-like white off-the-shoulder overlay, and she accessorized with large gold and pearl teeth earrings. Matching her grace, the star sports agent, who represents Davis, LeBron James, Ben Simmons, and more players, donned a classic tuxedo for the event.
Fans had been waiting for Adele to make the announcement about her relationship. The “Hello” singer, 33, was first linked with Paul, 39, two months ago, when the couple attended Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Phoenix. Since then they have been spotted on several outings together, thus sparking romance rumours.
In August, the “Rolling in the Deep” singer, 33, and Paul, 39, were seen grabbing dinner with a group of friends in West Hollywood. And in late July they attended Robert Kraft’s birthday party together alongside a plethora of A-list names.
In March of this year, Adele finalized her divorce from Simon Konecki, her ex-husband with whom she shares custody of their eight-year-old son, Angelo.
Another big news for fans of Adele is that she is set for a comeback this Christmas in Sin City.
Per Sunday Mirror, a source said, “Adele’s new album is the most highly-anticipated record of the year. It’s been a long time coming but her label wants it released before Christmas and have their sights set on a performance in Vegas.”
It further said that “Adele her management have been in talks with BBC America about broadcasting it around the world. This will be one of few performances as part of her promotional tour. Obviously with ongoing Covid dramas and concern for safety it could affect recording, but this is the date scheduled right now.”
Adele’s last record, 25, has sold 23 million copies since its 2015 release, which gave us classics like “Hello,” “Send My Love,” and “When We Were Young.” She took home the Grammy for Album of the Year in 2016 for the project. Her previous three albums, 19, 21, and 25 were all chart-toppers, and in both 2012 and 2016 she was named songwriter of the year at the Ivor Novello Awards.
If reports are true, then fans will see a new-look Adele too – after her amazing weight transformation.
At her last gig in 2017 she told the crowd: “I want the element of surprise every time I come back and it’s so hard to maintain that. I might never see you again at a live show, who knows, but I will remember this for the rest of my life.”
