Pop superstar Adele returned to the music scene after releasing her first single in six years, “Easy on Me” on October 15th. That’s not the only reason she’s been in the headlines recently, though.
The 33-year-old multi-Grammy winner began dating 39-year-old sports agent Rich Paul this year. Paul is the owner of “Klutch Sports” which signs various NBA and NFL clients. Paul signed with LeBron James in 2003 and has spread to clients such as John Wall, Trae Young, Anthony Davis and Ben Simmons, to name a few.
The timeline of their relationship is a bit uneven as the two aren’t very public about their relationship. With the release of Adele’s new album on Sunday, November 14, there’s a good chance some songs will be about Paul.

When the couple made their first public appearance in July during the NBA Finals, they instantly became one of the “it” couples on the court. Here’s what we know so far about their relationship.
Timeline of Adele and Rich Paul’s relationship
Beginning of 2021
Adele shared with Vogue Magazine that the two had been friends for some time, but didn’t start an actual relationship until early 2021. Neither of them specified a date or event that started their relationship.
Apparently the two met years ago at a party, where Adele asked Paul to ‘sign’ her while intoxicated: “I was a little drunk. I said ‘Wanna- you sign me? I’m an athlete now.
Adele’s divorce from Simon Konecki is finalized. The two share a nine-year-old son and have been married since 2016.
July 17, 2021
The couple made their first public appearance in Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Phoenix Suns and the Milwaukee Bucks. They were seated next to the field at the game. This appearance solidified rumors that the two could be dating.
Adele said Vogue Magazine that she had no intention of their relationship going public at this game, but it was a thought that crossed Paul’s mind on the way to the game. “I didn’t want to make it public. I just wanted to go to the game. I just like being with him. Love it, “she said.” He said to me, ‘What are people going to say?’ And I was like, ‘That you signed me. As an athlete. You are my agent. And he said ‘Okay, cool.’ “
