Adele and Rich Paul sparked dating rumors after their sighting at the NBA Finals.
The “Hello” singer and the sports super-agent were spotted sitting together at Game 5 of the NBA Finals Saturday. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst reignited the dating rumors when he referred to Adele as Paul’s “girlfriend.”
“Rich Paul, [LeBron James’] agent, brings his girlfriend to the game sitting next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele,” Windhorst said on his “The Lowe Post” podcast. “Rich Paul is at the game with Adele.”
“This is the first time they’ve come out in public together, so this will be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow.”
The 33-year-old singer and Paul were photographed chatting and laughing while watching the game where the Milwaukee Bucks beat Phoenix Suns 123-119.
A fan also captured a photo of Adele hugging Lil Wayne backstage and Paul can be seen in the background. Page Six also noted that Paul follows the “Someone Like You” singer on Instagram.
Page Six already reached out to Adele and Paul’s reps for comment but has not gotten any response yet.
Meanwhile, the “Rolling in the Deep” hitmaker’s sighting with Paul came shortly after she was spotted with British rapper Skepta, who is also being romantically linked to he singer. Last week, the pair visited the Cabazon Outlets, a discount mall outside San Bernardino.
Adele was helping a British guy with matching description and tattoos as Skepta as he picked out clothes in the discount Prada store at the mall, according to an insider.
“She was sitting watching him while he was picking sweaters, pants, trying on jackets and coats and having the employees help him,” the unnamed source told Page Six. “She was giving him feedback and saying what she thought he looked great in. It was cute that just waiting and being a normal girlfriend while he looked. He must have shopped for 45 minutes.”
Skepta and Adele have been romantically linked for years, but they have never confirmed their romance. In October, Adele shut down the dating rumors in a post by referring to herself as a “(single) cat lady.”
Adele was previously married to Simon Konecki. They split in 2019 after seven years together and their divorce was finalized in March. They share an 8-year-old son, Angelo. Meanwhile, Skepta has a 2-year-old daughter, named River, from a previous relationship.
