Adele ‘engaged to sports agent boyfriend Rich Paul’
British singing superstar Adele and her boyfriend Rich Paul are reportedly engaged.
The singer, 34, and the sports agent Paul, 41, went public with their relationship in September 2021. She confirmed in summer 2022 they were living together.
Gossip site Deux Moi is now reporting that the couple are engaged - with the news apparently coming from a “very reliable source.”
It has been suggested that the pair are believed to be planning a wedding this summer.
Further fueling the rumours is the fact that Tottenham-born Adele was seen wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger at her latest Las Vegas show over the weekend.
It is the same ring she was seen wearing at the BRIT Awards in early 2022.

Representatives of Adele have been contacted for comment.
In August last year, Adele gave a rare glimpse into her private life.
In an interview with Elle UK and its American counterpart, Elle US, she said of Paul: “I’ve never been in love like this. I’m obsessed with him.”
Paul is the founder of management company Klutch Sports Group, which represents high-profile basketball stars including LeBron James, Anthony Davis and John Wall. The pair have been spotted watching basketball games together in the US where they both live.
However, in the same interview Adele denied she was engaged to Paul. She did hint she would be open to marriage again following her split from ex-husband Simon Konecki.
Adele shares a son, Angelo, with Konecki.
Adele, who headlined Glastonbury festival in 2016, announced her split from the charity boss in April 2019.
An Audience with Adele
Their divorce was finalised in March 2021, with the former couple sharing custody of their son.
Many songs on her latest album, 30, deal with the split.
Adele is currently performing every weekend in Las Vegas.
Earlier this month, Adele revealed she’s been performing her residency with a disintegrated disc in her spine.
Speaking during her Weekends With Adele at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, she asked her audience: “Is anyone else kind of my age starting getting bad knees?
“I have got really bad sciatica in my left leg and my L5 disc is not f****** there any more. It’s worn away.”
