There's lots going on in the Adele world at the moment after the songstress has been off the radar for the past few years. But she's certainly making it up for it in 2021, with a new album and a new man in her life.
Who is Adele's boyfriend?
Although they became Instagram official in September 2021, they were seen together back in May 2021 and Paul said in a New Yorker profile at the time that he'd been "hanging out" with a pop star.
Rich Paul is the founder of Klutch Sports Group which represents a number of prominent NBA players, such as LeBron James, and several NFL players. The company was founded in 2012. He's also the head of UTA Sports.
Paul was based in Cleveland, Ohio, which is also where he was born and raised, until 2019 and he now lives in LA.
Are they engaged?
Engagement rumours were sparked after Adele was seen out with her new beau and photographed wearing a gold band around her ring finger.
However, nothing has been confirmed and it looks more like a piece of fashion jewellery than an engagement ring (but never say never). The ring was chunky and had a wrap around style with one end being pointy.
Adele's divorce from Simon Konecki was only finalised this year, so we doubt she'll want to jump straight back into marriage at the moment.
Adele and Rich Paul were seen leaving the London Palladium, where she filmed An Audience With Adele, on 6th November, holding hands and looking all loved up. As for anything more though, the pair seem to just be enjoying each other's company at the moment and getting to know each other's family and friends.
