Adele fans spot ‘clue’ singer has been seeing sports agent Rich Paul for months before date at basketball game
ADELE fans spotted a "clue" the singer has been seeing sports agent Rich Paul for months before their date at a basketball game.
The pop superstar, 33, surprised fans by appearing alongside LeBron James' agent, 39, at the NBA Finals in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday.
This was the first time Adele was spotted on a date since filing for divorce in September 2019 – but fans are convinced there were clues beforehand.
During an interview with The New Yorker on May 31, Rich told the publication he was "hanging out" with a major pop star.
He added that "she was over yesterday" but didn't speak any further about who he was talking to.
However, Rich played coy with the exact nature of their relationship, saying: "I'm not dating, I'm single. Put that in the story."
Meanwhile, gossip blog Deuxmoi claim the pair have been seeing each other for a "medium amount of time".
However, ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst appeared to confirm their relationship on his podcast, The Lowe Post.
He said on Saturday: "This is the first time they've come out in public together, so this will be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow."
Neither Adele or Rich have commented or confirmed the speculation.
Self-made Rich, worth an estimated £33.4million, started out flogging vintage sports shirts from the back of his car in Cleveland, Ohio.
He met a teenage LeBron at an airport in 2002, selling him a shirt and giving him his contact details — later becoming his agent.
It was a rare public appearance for North Londoner Adele, who chatted intimately with Rich as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Phoenix Suns.
She and ex-husband Simon Konecki finalised their divorce in March, sharing joint custody of son Angelo, eight.
Rich lives near her in Beverly Hills, where she owns three homes. As a top basketball agent he cuts deals worth more than $1billion — including the acting role for LeBron in new movie Space Jam: A New Legacy.
