Adele’s New Boyfriend Rich Paul Could Be Her ‘Soulmate’

 Adele has had a whirlwind few years. From filing for divorce from her ex-husband, Simon Konecki in 2019 to creating her 30 album and having her divorce finalized in March, the singer has been through a lot. But the silver lining in all of this seems to be her relationship with sports agent, Rich Paul. The two went public with their relationship earlier this year, and according to sources, it’s different than any of the singer’s others.

Adele’s boyfriend Rich Paul could be her soulmate

Those close to Adele have seen how great the singer’s relationship with Paul has been.

“Adele has been in her fair share of relationships and this one is different; she feels that she can throw around the soul mate card for Rich because it just feels that right,” a source close to Adele told HollywoodLife.

The pair have reportedly “really connected” in the short few months they have been together.

“Adele is having such an amazing time with Rich, they really have connected over each’s sense of humor, and they really admire each other’s work ethic,” the source continued. “They allow time to spend together and also give each other plenty of space so they are not overbearing with each other.”

The two are even planning to spend the holidays together with Adele’s son, Angelo.

“Coming into the holiday season, she is really looking forward to making more and more memories with Rich. It is not a honeymoon phase type of situation; it is two people that have clearly found the right person and it genuinely just works,” the source continued.

How did Adele meet her boyfriend?

Adele had known Paul, who is a sports agent to celebrities like LeBron James, for years. But the two didn’t really connect until earlier this year.

“He was always there, I just didn’t see him,” the singer told American Vogue. “I was a bit drunk. I said: ‘Do you want to sign me? I’m an athlete now.’ He’s just so f*cking funny. He was dancing. All the other guys were just sitting around. He was just dancing away.”

Just before the singer’s father died “Rich just incredibly arrived” and the relationship has been completely different than any she’s had.

“I don’t feel anxious or nervous or frazzled. It’s quite the opposite. It’s wild” she said. “I’m a 33-year-old divorced mother of a son, who’s actually in charge. The last thing I need is someone who doesn’t know where they’re at, or what they want. I know what I want. And I really know what I don’t want.”

Why did the singer get divorced?

Many fans were surprised in 2019 when Adele up and ended her marriage. But she recently opened up about the split and said that she just didn’t feel the relationship was right for her anymore.

“The timeline the press have of my relationship, my marriage, is actually completely wrong,” she told British Vogue. “We got married when I was 30… and then I left. It just wasn’t… It just wasn’t right for me anymore. I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew. I wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first. But, yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that.”
