Rumor has it Adele has a new man in her life.

The Grammy-winning singer and sports super-agent Rich Paul sparked dating rumors by sitting together at Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Saturday — which ignited into a full-blown blaze after ESPN’s Brian Windhorst referred to Adele as Paul’s “girlfriend.”

“Rich Paul, [LeBron James’] agent, brings his girlfriend to the game sitting next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele,” Windhorst said his “The Lowe Post” podcast. “Rich Paul is at the game with Adele.”

Adele, 33, and Rich were photographed chatting, laughing and checking out the action during the game, which saw the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Phoenix Suns 123-119.

“This is the first time they’ve come out in public together,” Windhorst added on the podcast of Adele and Paul, “so this will be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow.”

Paul could also be seen in the background of pictures a fan sneakily took of Adele hugging Lil Wayne backstage.

James was seen chatting with his agent at one point during the game, though it didn’t appear that he sat with Adele and Paul.

For what it’s worth, Rich also follows the “Rolling In the Deep” singer on Instagram — along with 39 million other people.

Page Six reached out to reps for both Adele and Paul for comment.

Adele’s night out comes shortly after she was spotted with another rumored boyfriend: British rapper Skepta. Page Six revealed last week that the pair recently went on a shopping trip to discount mall Cabazon Outlets in San Bernardino, Calif.

Adele and Skepta were first romantically linked last fall, but Adele shot down romance rumors at the time by referring to herself as a “(single) cat lady” on social media.

Adele finalized her divorce from hubby Simon Konecki in March, more than two years after they separated. They are the parents of an 8-year-old son named Angelo.

Adele and LeBron James’ Agent Rich Paul Reportedly Dating

Late Saturday night, hours after Paul was spotted courtside with Adele at Game 5 of the NBA Finals, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst dropped a bombshell on NBA insider Zach Lowe’s podcast.

“Rich Paul brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele,” Windhorst said on The Lowe Post. “Rich Paul is at 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.”

The news arrives just four months after Adele finalized her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki. After five years of dating, which was highlighted by the birth of their son in 2012, the couple tied the knot in 2016. In April 2019, Adele seperated from Konecki and later that year filed for divorce. 

Drake initially wanted “Uptown” to be the first single from the project, but Paul convinced him that “Best I Ever Had” was the better choice. “I was like, ‘Yo ‘Uptown’ is the one, this is what we should go with,’” Drake explained at the 13:07 mark in the interview. “He was like, ‘Yo, nah. What are you talking about? This other one is the one.’”

Adele Rumored to Be Dating LeBron James' Agent, Rich Paul

TMZ 18 July, 2021 - 01:19pm

ESPN's Brian Windhorst dropped the bombshell on his 'Lowe Post' podcast Saturday night ... shortly after the Bucks beat the Suns for Game 5 of the NBA Finals. It was a star-studded game in the stands -- and featured none other than Adele, sitting next to LeBron's agent, Rich Paul ... a dude who's usually behind the scenes, but is a major NBA power broker.

Windhorst was describing the atmosphere and the famous faces in the crowd -- and when he got to LeBron and Rich, he didn't even pretend to play coy with who he says Adele is as it relates to Rich. By that, we mean he straight-up referred to her as his full-blown girlfriend.

Adele was photographed getting cozy next to Rich during the game -- but there were no obvious signs of PDA to indicate a relationship. In fact, before Windhorst said this ... we'd argue no one even thought anything of the seating arrangement. But, this is ... WOW!

IF true, it might be one of the more surprising pairings we've seen in a while. Adele's been rumored to have dated Drake, Skepta and even Harry Styles at one point last year. Remember, she is newly single following the finalization of her divorce from ex, Simon.

Adele Flaunts Her Figure in Stylish Look During Rare Outing at NBA Game

Life&Style Weekly 18 July, 2021 - 12:10pm

Looking good, gorgeous! Adele was spotted showing off her slim curves in a stylish outfit during a rare outing at an NBA game on Saturday, July 17.

In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, the 33-year-old donned black jeans and a black top with a long black and bleached Vivienne Westwood jacket on top while attending Game 5 of the NBA finals, which pitted the Phoenix Suns against Milwaukee Bucks. She also donned black heels and a black face mask as she sat courtside next to LeBron James and his agent, Rich Paul.

The singer has been showing off her love of sports lately. She flaunted her trim figure while rocking an England soccer jersey via Instagram on July 11 in support of the team and their devastating loss during the 2020 UEFA European Football Championship final.

Adele debuted her incredible 100-pound weight loss in May 2019 — and she has only gotten more and more confident since. “It’s only natural that with change comes a new sense of self and wanting to be your best possible version,” her personal trainer, Pete Geracimo, previously told Life & Style. “She embraced better eating habits and committed to her fitness and is sweating!”

At the time, an insider gushed to Life & Style that the Grammy winner is “absolutely living her best life right now” following her dramatic weight loss. “She’s in the best shape she’s ever been in — even she can’t believe how she’s transformed her body.”

The “Rolling in the Deep” artist was able to make significant changes in her diet, including the incorporation of green vegetables, after “educating herself on the right foods to have around the house,” the source noted before adding that exercise is now part of the proud mother’s daily routine. “She loves working out now, which she jokes is not something she ever thought would come out of her mouth,” the insider said at the time.

Adele shares 8-year-old son Angelo with ex-husband Simon Konecki, and losing weight allowed her to “embrace motherhood on a whole different level” with her son. “She says she has more energy now,” a separate source previously revealed. “Every aspect of her life has shifted. She feels energized and excited about the future.”

Adele Might Have a New Man in Her Life

Yahoo Lifestyle 18 July, 2021 - 10:40am

According to ESPN announcer Brian Windhorst, the pair are very much in a relationship and the basketball game was their first appearance as a couple. On his podcast The Lowe Post, Windhorst revealed, "Rich Paul brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele."

He added, "Rich Paul is at 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."

During the game, Adele, who wore a statement coat over her all-black outfit, was spotted laughing with Rich courtside, and at one point, he subtly leaned in to be closer to the singer. Though, it's totally possible they're just friends.

Last year, Adele was linked to British rapper Skepta (aka Joseph Junior Adenuga). A source close to the singer confirmed the pair were dating after months of speculation, and before her relationship with Skepta, Adele was married to charity CEO Simon Konecki. The two finalized their divorce earlier this year.

Adele, 33, looked incredible during a rare public appearance on July 17! The singer showed up to the NBA Final game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns while donning a long tan and black patterned jacket over a black top and black fitted leggings.

The beauty, who has reportedly lost around 100 pounds, kept safe with a black face mask during the outing and ended up sitting courtside as she watched the players shoot hoops and get cheered on by the crowd. She was also reportedly seated next to Rich Paul, LeBron James‘ agent during the fun game.

Before Adele’s latest headline-making appearance, she had fans talking when she posted a photo of herself to commemorate England’s great run at the UEFA European Football Championship (Euro Cup) last week. In it, she rocked a red England jersey and black leggings, and had her nails painted to look like the English flag. “You did us so proud! You brought our game home and brought us all together,” she wrote in the caption. 

Just a couple of months ago, in May, Adele also made headlines when she posted a series of photos of herself looking happy while celebrating her 33rd birthday. They included a makeup-free black and white portrait in which she was giving a serious look to the camera and one of her thrillingly dancing and twirling while wearing a stylish maxi dress with a tie-dye pattern. She also included one that showed her with her arms stretched out while taking a dip in water.

It’s always wonderful to see Adele living her best life! We look forward to seeing what other outings she has and fashionable looks she shows off in the near future!

Adele weight loss: Expert claims intermittent fasting behind transformation - new pictures

Express 18 July, 2021 - 05:21am

Adele has gained popularity for her powerful voice and impressive song-writing abilities. She has also spoken about her weight loss in the past.

She wore a fitted black top and black skinny jeans under a long patterned coat.

Adele has notably achieved healthy weight loss results in recent years and some fans were quick to comment on her toned frame.

Posting on Twitter, one said: "Adele's weight loss transformation will always amaze me."

Another simply added: "Adele looks great!"

The mother-of-one has only briefly commented on her transformation during an appearance on Saturday Night Live.

She joked: "I know I look really, really different since you last saw me.

"But actually, because of all the Covid restrictions… I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me. And this is the half I chose."

Fitness expert and CEO of Bio-Synergy Daniel Herman has shared the diet and exercise plans he believed helped her slim down.

The expert told Express.co.uk her results are likely from intermittent fasting and light exercise such as pilates.

"Based on the dramatic change it would seem an intermittent fasting diet along with an increase in exercise - possibly pilates or yoga - would have been the most likely plan followed by Adele," he claimed.

"To assist her, she may have also used insights from a DNA test to reveal any dietary deficiencies or underlying health issues, perhaps around gut health and to understand what type of exercise and foods would work best for her, based on her genetics."

Daniel elaborated: "Intermittent fasting cycles between fasting and eating.

"We all fast every day, but ‘break’ the fast by eating breakfast.

"But many people do the 16/8 method, which restricts food intake for 16 hours and allows eating during an eight-hour window.

"[There is also] alternate day fasting. Alternate day fasting is done every other day. It’s a form of one day fasting.

"[Also] eat-stop-eat. In this method, you fast for 24 hours once or twice a week

"[Some use] periodic fasting. Food intake is restricted for a set number of days, such as a three day fast once a month.

"But in general, there’s some evidence that fasting has great benefits like weight loss, better digestion and slower aging."
