Hello, it’s me. I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet to go everything… about Adele’s potential new boyfriend? Thought so. Here’s what we know.

“Hello” singer (and frankly the best rapper of Nicki Minaj’s “Monster” track) Adele attended the NBA Finals for Game 5 (the Phoenix Suns versus the Milwaukee Bucks) on July 17 in Arizona. Here, the 33-year-old sat courtside, laughing, next to LeBron James’ agent Rich Paul – and if it weren’t for some sneaky sources over at E! News, we probably wouldn’t have thought too deeply into the seating placement (read: these two were not all over each other).

Said source, however, has confirmed to the outlet that the duo are dating. But perhaps the most amusing part of this potential new romance is the fact that it seems like old news to those in the NBA’s inner circle. ESPN’s sports journalist Brian Windhorst recently went on The Lowe Post where he (quite matter of factly) spoke about Adele and Paul.

“Meanwhile, Rich Paul, [LeBron’s] agent, brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele,” Windhorst said. “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 possible relationship comes four months after Adele finalised her divorce with charity CEO Simon Konecki of whom she was married to for two years (and together with for seven). The former couple share custody of their eight-year-old son Angelo. “Adele and her partner have separated,” the singer’s rep confirmed in a statement to US Weekly in April 2019. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly.”

A source told E! News Adele has new music on the way, adding “the album is going to be released very soon, and she is excited for the world to hear it.”

Stay tuned.
