ADELE is opening up about her upcoming album and finding happiness in a new interview with Vogue.
The singer sent shockwaves across the internet after she went Instagram official with her boyfriend, Rich Paul. Rumors that the two were an item started back in July 2021 after they were caught together on a date in NYC.
Who is Adele's boyfriend Rich Paul?
Born December 16, 1981, Paul, 39, is known professionally as an American sports agent based in Cleveland, Ohio.
In 2012, Paul founded the sports agency Klutch Sports Group and has since signed multiple big name NBA stars, including Ben Simmons, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and John Wall.
Outside of sports, Paul is also writing a memoir Lucky Me that will be published by Roc Lit 101, the publishing division of Jay-Z's entertainment company Roc Nation.
Paul said in a statement back in March 2021: “Lucky Me is more than my story.
“Lucky Me is the story of every young Black man who grew up like me.
"I want to use my story to uplift and inspire those who lived this and educate those who didn’t.
"I cannot tell you what it means to partner with my friend and mentor Jay-Z on this project.
"Lucky Me was the name of the book before I even spoke with Jay because his music was my life’s soundtrack.”
As of October 2021, it is unknown when the book will be released.
How long have Adele and Rich Paul been dating?
Throughout their relationship, the couple had previously only been spotted out a handful of times.
The first time Adele and Paul were seen together was during the 2021 NBA Finals, when the couple sat court-side during the Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks Game Five.
Just a few days after, PageSix was told by a source that the two were "[definitely] dating,” and had been for “a few months”.
While an exact date is still unknown, they have been dating since the early part of 2021 and on September 18, 2021, the singer posted a picture of the two with a heart, making them Instagram official.
Their relationship comes after Adele's divorce from Simon Konecki was finalized in March 2021.
In October 2021, the singer and sports agent were spotted cuddled up at a Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers basketball game.
She donned a brown leather jumpsuit and Louis Vuitton jacket while Paul wore a black turtleneck and suede jacket.
What is Rich Paul's net worth?
Paul just happened to be in the right place at the right time in 2002 when he discovered a 17-year-old rising star in the basketball world at an airport.
Business Insider reported that Paul met James and convinced him to return to Cleveland and become one of his first clients.
Since then, Paul has continued to become one of the biggest sports agents in the world, giving him an extensive net worth.
As of 2021, Celebrity Net Worth estimates Paul's to be $100million.
Over the years, Paul has generated close to $1billion in deals and didn't even graduate from college.
In 2019, the NCAA announced that they would no longer require agents to have a bachelor's degree and that has since been dubbed the "Rich Paul Rule."
"I'm a unicorn in the sports agent business. Young, African-American, and didn't go to a prestigious business school.
"To make it, I tell people to not only dream big, but achieve big. I was blessed to take the leap at the right time and had success.
"Complacency is the cousin of satisfaction and I'm never satisfied. I'm more motivated now than ever before."
Forbes reported that as of 2020, Paul has 49 clients.
What has Adele said about her relationship with Rich Paul?
In a new interview with British Vogue, the Hello singer confirmed she and Rich are "very happy" in their relationship.
She went on to explain how she "didn't mean" to go public with her relationship when they were first spotted at a basketball game.
Adele revealed: "I just wanted to go to the game. I just love being around him. I just love it."
The singer revealed she did date other men after her split from Konecki, but they were too bothered with her fame apart from Paul.
Adele told Vogue: "Rich just incredibly arrived, I don't feel anxious or nervous or frazzled. It's quite the opposite.
"It's wild. I'm a 33-year-old divorced mother of a son, who's actually in charge.
"The last thing I need is someone who doesn't know where they're at, or what they want. I know what I want. And I really know what I don't want."
What is Adele One Night Only?
Adele has had quite a year from announcing her relationship with Rich Paul to announcing her newest album.
Along with the celebrations, the singer will also be releasing a special called Adele One Night Only which will cover everything about her newest album.
The CBS special will also feature an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey in which the singer opens up about the songs, life after her divorce, weight loss and raising her son.
