Adele and Rich Paul seem to have confirmed their relationship. Paul, a top sports agent, was first seen with the singer last week at Game Five of the NBA Finals between the Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks. They were reportedly joined by LeBron James, Paul’s client.
Now, it seems the two have confirmed their romance, via a PDA-filled date at Cipriani in NYC, per photos obtained by The Sun. They were seen getting what The Sun described as “flirty” in the photos; in one, Paul looks to have his arm around Adele’s back. The Sun reports this was a double date.
Following last week’s game, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst was the first to suggest that Paul and the “Rolling in the Deep” singer are in a relationship.
“Rich Paul brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele,” Windhorst said on his podcast, per USA Today. “Rich Paul is at the game with Adele… This is the first time that they’ve come out in public together. So this will be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow.”
Last Tuesday, a few days following the NBA game, Page Six confirmed that the two are “100 percent” dating.
In a late May profile for The New Yorker, Paul was fairly cryptic about his romantic life when he said, “I’m not dating, I’m single. Put that in the story.”
The story didn’t mention Adele’s name, but Paul’s longtime advisor Adam Mendelsohn mentioned her name in the presence of Isaac Chotiner, who wrote, “I wasn’t entirely sure whether this exchange was for my benefit.” In the piece, Chotiner refers to Adele only as “a major pop star.’
The on-the-record exchange on the matter seemed fairly short:
“She was over yesterday,” Paul said.
“Doing what?” [Mendelsohn] asked.
“Hanging out,” Paul replied.
“Why are you hanging out?” Mendelsohn asked.
“Why not?” Paul replied.
