Adele and LeBron James’ Agent: Adele made a rare public appearance to attend the NBA Finals. However, the singer was not alone, as a source confirmed to E! News that she and “Rich Paul attended the game together.”
Adele’s rumored new romance is keeping us busy.
On Saturday, July 17, the 33-year-old singer created a furor by appearing in a rare public appearance at Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The British star looked as stunning as ever, wearing a fun print coat and an all-black ensemble underneath.
However, it’s not just Adele’s style that’s noteworthy.
The “Rumor Has It” singer sat on the court next to LeBron James’ agent Rich Paul. Although the two didn’t make many signs of attention during the game against the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks, they looked cozy together.
During the fun night, the duo seemed attentive to what was going on during the game. At one point, the Grammy winner even noted something going on on the court, and the sports agent leaned in to listen closely.
A source confirmed to E! News that the two are dating, and another insider added: “Adele and Rich Paul attended the game together.”
While Phoenix and Milwaukee battled it out in the finals, the couple diverted attention away from the players and even got the attention of ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.
In a recent episode of The Lowe Post podcast, the sports reporter reacted to Adele and Rich’s date night.
“Meanwhile, Rich Paul, [LeBron’s] agent, brought his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele,” Bryan said. “Rich Paul is at the game with Adele. LeBron is watching the game with Adele. This is the first time they’ve appeared in public together, so it’s going to be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow. Trust me.”
As of now, Adele and Rich have yet to comment publicly on their rumored romance. E! News has reached out to their representatives, but has not yet received a response.
News of the singer’s possible relationship comes four months after she finalized her divorce from Simon Konecki. The two, who separated in September 2019, agreed to share legal and physical custody of their 8-year-old son Angelo.
A month after her breakup with Simon, rumors swirled that Adele was dating rapper Skepta. Last June, the “Chasing Pavements” musician and rapper exchanged flirty messages on Instagram, which only added fuel to the fire.
But in October 2020, she confirmed she wasn’t in a relationship during her memorable performance on Saturday Night Live. As she wrote on Instagram at the time, “I’m going back to my cave to be the (single) cat lady that I am! Peace until next year [black heart emoji].”
As for Rich? In 2019, the sports agent was linked to Jennifer Meyer, the estranged wife of Tobey Maguire, who filed for divorce in October 2020.
But even though Adele may have a new man, a source close to the British performer previously told E! News that she still puts herself first.
“Adele has been very busy with herself over the past year,” the insider shared last month, “and has spent several months in the studio recording her new album.
The source added: “The album is coming out very soon, and she really wants the world to hear it.”
