“I’ve Never Been in Love Like This.” How Adele Went Through a Divorce and Managed to Open Her Heart for New Love

Everyone’s favorite nightingale has made it through the headlines of divorce and heartbreak. Since Adele’s rise to fame, her marriage fell apart, a sad time for many people, including Adele. A few years later, Adele seems to have struck luck with her new boyfriend. Photos of the two cuddling up together have all the single people on the internet swooning over their cuteness. Adele says she has “never been in love like this”. But, who exactly is her new beau?


Adele is admittedly obsessed with her new boyfriend

After Adele got divorced from her husband, Simon Konecki, she found new love with a sports agent, Paul Rich. The two were friends for some time before they discovered they had feelings for each other. In May earlier this year, Adele and Paul celebrated their one-year anniversary and at the same time, they bought a mansion in Beverly Hills. To top it all off, Adele turned 34 years old.


Last year, the world discovered that Adele had found love again. In July 2021, she was spotted on a date with Paul in New York, Cipriani. Those who managed to snap a pic found them displaying a decent amount of PDA (public display of affection). Page Six confirmed this the day after their romantic night. The world was unsure whether they were in a romance or a real relationship. Then Brian Windhorst spoke bout them in a Podcast after Game 5 of the NBA Finals. He said: “Rich Paul brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele. This is the first time that they’ve come out in public together.”

More about Paul

Paul Rich grew up in a neighborhood called Glenville in Cleveland Ohio. he was inspired to become a sports agent from a young age. In 2002, he met James, a Philadelphia 76ers player, as a teenager at the Akron-Canton Airport. James and Paul managed to maintain a friendship over the years, and this was Paul’s break into the industry. He started working under Leon Rose, who was Jame’s agent back then.

Paul gained the experience he needed with Leon and ended up starting his own agency called Klutch Sports Group. since then, he has gained many high-ranking and well-known sports stars. Some of his clients include Los Angeles Lakers star, Anthony Davis, as well as Draymond Green, a player for Golden State Warriors. Not to mention, Ben Simmons who plays for the Philadelphia 76ers.

The man who revealed Paul and Adele were in a relationship, Windhorst said once in a Podcast, “The burden that Rich faces are that people question his legitimacy. They want to delegitimize him because of his race, because of his lack of education, and because he used to sell jerseys out of the trunk of his car. If that’s the best they can do, they have to do a lot better.”

Paul’s memoir

Paul Rich announced that he is writing a memoir about his life, and how he worked tirelessly to rise to success. Jay-Z’s company called Roc Nation is going to publish the book, which Paul describes as an honor. For Adele’s boyfriend, Paul, the writing of his story is not simply an expression of his life. He wants his story to inspire others who have dreams of their own.

“Lucky Me is more than my story. Lucky Me is the story of every young Black man who grew up like me,” he said in a statement to the press. “I want to use my story to uplift and inspire those who lived this and educate those who didn’t. I cannot tell you what it means to partner with my friend and mentor Jay-Z on this project. Lucky Me was the name of the book before I even spoke with Jay because his music was my life’s soundtrack.”


A secret marriage?

Rumors have been circulating that Adele and Paul Rich have secretly been married. She recently posted a series of selfies from her home to announce and celebrate the winning of her first Emmy award. In the background of the picture, Adele’s followers could not help but notice something that hinted she and Paul had tied the knot. Next to the Emmy trophy, there was a game of Rummikub. Normally this wouldn’t seem like anything out of the ordinary. But, fans pointed out that the game had a lable that read: “The Paul’s“.

One excited fan stated in the comments: “’The Paul’s’” MY GIRL IS MARRIED!” another echoed the same words: “’The Paul’s’ 👀👀 is you married?! 😂”.


However, other fans pointed out that the lable had a grammatical error. They say it might not be referring to their secret marriage, but that the game belongs to paul. One fan said: “wouldn’t be Paul’s if they were married, it would be Paul’s.” a second person also dislikes the grammatical error. They said: “I can’t tell if I am more excited about it or upset at the bad punctuation.”

Adele has since confirmed she is not engaged, nor married. Although, when asked if she would wanted more children she said: “I definitely want more kids. I’m a homemaker and I’m a matriarch, and a stable life helps me with my music.”
