How Serious Is Adele And Rich Paul's Relationship?

Adele made headlines in July when she was spotted on a date with famed sports agent Rich Paul. The couple was seen cozying up together during Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Milwaukee Bucks and Pheonix Suns. Although the pair hadn't announced that they were dating, ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst spilled the tea about their relationship following the game during an appearance on "The Lowe Post" (via Page Six). "Rich Paul brings his girlfriend to the game sitting next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele. Rich Paul is at the game with Adele," Windhorst said. "This is the first time they've come out in public together, so this will be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow," he added.

Paul is known for representing athletes such as NBA stars LeBron James, Ben Simmons, Tristan Thompson, Darius Garland, Lonzo Ball, and more (via Real GM). Forbes reports that Paul, who is the founder of Klutch Sports management group is also among the 10 most powerful sports agents and is said to have made over $46 million in commissions in 2020.

The Sun reports that Adele and Paul have been spotted out together several times. They've even been seen getting flirty during what appears to be group dates, and even showed off a bit of PDA during an outing in New York. However, they've yet to speak on their budding romance. So, just how serious is the couple's relationship?

Adele and Rich Paul are just having fun for now

According to Page Six, Adele and Rich Paul were spotted together again this week when they stepped out for a date night in Los Angeles. The "When We Were Young" singer looked gorgeous in a black top and a plaid skirt. She accessorized the look with knee-high black boots and large hoop earrings. Meanwhile, Paul wore a pair of jeans and a casual hoodie. Both he and Adele also sported face coverings amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The pair headed to dinner at the trendy restaurant Opium. Although the pair have not officially confirmed their relationship, sources tell the outlet that they are "definitely dating."

"It's not super serious, but they're having a good time," a source told People Magazine in July. "They have mutual friends in common, so that's been nice. She's having fun and being social." The insider went on to reveal that Adele "has relaxed a lot" since divorcing her ex-husband Simon Konecki, with whom she shares one son. "She's not quite as private as when she was married."

In addition, an insider told OK! Magazine that Paul has been spoiling the singer rotten, and that she's loving every minute of their relationship. "She's clearly over the moon because this is the first time she's dating someone who's as successful as she is," the source explained. "Rich dotes on her, and Adele is having the time of her life. She's fully living the dream," the insider added.

It appears that Adele and Paul are taking things slow, but having fun while doing so.
