Adele could be seen during Saturday night’s game sitting next to Rich Paul, who works as LeBron James’ agent. Rich is also Adele’s suspected new boyfriend after rumors surfaced two months ago when the New Yorker revealed Rich was “hanging out” with a “major pop star.” Looks like the code may have been cracked on that case.

While neither Adele or Rich have commented on their relationship status, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst gave speculators all the confirmation they needed after the game when he appeared on a podcast with NBA insider Zach Lowe.

“Rich Paul brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele,” Brian said on the podcast. “Rich Paul is at the game with Adele. LeBron is watching the game with Adele. This is the first time that they’ve come out in public together so this will be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow. Trust me.”

The suspected new romance takes place four months after Adele and ex-husband, Simon Konecki, finalized their divorce. The couple shares a son together, who they welcomed in 2012, followed by tying the knot in 2016. The couple revealed their split in spring 2019, and officially filed for divorce months later.
