Whether it’s her music or her personal life, Adele is making a comeback. It has been six years since the Grammy-winning singer released her first album in six years, 30, which will be released on Friday, Nov. 19.
It was revealed in her first public appearances in more than five years that the sports agent Rich Paul has become the new love of her life. Asked British Vogue in an October 2021 profile, “Yes, we’re together,” she said. “It’s been a wonderful experience,” said the family.
In her Adele One Night Only concert special on Sunday, Nov. 14, at 8:30 p.m. ET on CBS, Adele revealed more to Oprah Winfrey and performed at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
For those curious about what she’s had to say about ex-husband Paul or the subject of her new album — not to mention the allegations swirling around their relationship — check out the information below.
What is Adele’s relationship status?
According to Vogue, Adele has been Paul since the beginning of 2021. On July 17, the couple made their first public appearance at an NBA finals game, sparking rumors that they were dating.
“It wasn’t my intention to make this public. For her, it was about going to the game, not about anything else, she told the publication. “I enjoy spending time with him so much.” Simply put, I adore it.
However, the pair discussed their plans to attend the game while driving to the stadium. Then he wondered, ‘What will people think?'” “That you signed me,” I exclaimed. In my capacity as a sportsperson. In the words of Adele: “You are my agency.” A cool “Okay” came from him.
Adele was drawn to Paul by his laid-back manner. This is not a big deal for him,” she said in an interview with British Vogue. “I don’t care who knows because it feels constant and considerate enough.”
When she’s around him, she relaxes. In other words, I don’t feel tense or anxious. The exact opposite is true. This is crazy,” she said to Vogue. “I’m a divorced mother of a three-year-old boy, and I’m in charge.”
Someone who doesn’t know where they are or what they want isn’t what I’m looking for. I have a clear vision of what I want in my life. It’s clear to me what I do not desire.
After the wedding of Lakers player Anthony Davis on Sept. 18, Adele uploaded a picture of herself and Paul with a heart emoji on Instagram. Their second courtside appearance on NBA’s opening night at the Warriors-Lakers game on October 19 was now possible after the tea was spilled.
They were also seen in Adele’s native England in early November, where she gave her first performance in the UK in four years at the London Palladium.
What Has Adele Said About Her Split from Her Husband?
Her ex-husband Simon Konecki divorced her when she was 30 years old; she is now 33. The 37-year-old sports agent from Cleveland, Ohio, Rich Paul, is her new boyfriend.
Konecki and the singer now share custody of their son Angelo, whom they both raised together.
Adele has confirmed to Vogue that she and Konecki were married in 2018 and not 2016, as previously thought. In 2019, she filed for divorce from her husband.
“The timeline the press has of my relationship, my marriage, is absolutely completely incorrect,” she said. “I was 30 when we got married… Afterward, I went my own way
She went on to say, “It was just not right for me anymore.” In the end, I didn’t want to be like so many of the other individuals I knew. I wasn’t miserable, but I probably would have been if I hadn’t prioritized my needs. However, there was nothing negative to report.”
According to Adele, she composed the song and the album as a way to explain the divorce to her kid.
Speaking with Vogue about her upcoming album, Adele said: “I wanted to explain who I am and why I willfully chose to deconstruct his entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness to him through this record when he is in his twenties or thirties.
“Sometimes, it made him terribly depressed.” As a result, I’m left with a deep wound that I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to recover from.”
