How old is Adele’s boyfriend Rich Paul and what is his job? Singer’s relationship history including divorce
Hitmaker Adele has wowed fans with her explosive return to the music scene, debuting a brand new look and a brand new man.
The 33 year old singer – full name Adele Adkins – has flown under the radar for the past few years, and kept us all early awaiting her fourth album, but her first single in six years, Easy On Me, is set for release on October 15.
Her fourth studio album – though to be titled 30 – is expected to follow in the coming weeks.
Ahead of her new single release, the stunning Londoner has recently graced the covers of both British and American Vogue's November issues, and looks incredible.
Adele's candid interview with the publisher is the first she has done in over five years, and in it, she opens up on her gorgeous new man Rich Paul, confirming their relationship and stating "we're very happy".
So who is the chart-topper's boyfriend, and what do we know about him?
Here's all you need to know…
Who is Rich Paul and how old is he?
Rich Paul is 39 years old, born on December 16, 1981.
He hails from Cleveland, Ohio, over in the United States, but now lives in Los Angeles, California – the same city as other half.
Rich is a successful businessman and multi-millionaire, but just like Adele he comes from humble beginnings.
Growing up in a one-bedroom apartment with his family, he was urged to pursue a good education by his father, who ran a convenience store located under their flat.
What does Rich Paul do as a job?
Rich Paul is the CEO and Founder of Klutch Sports Group, as well as being the head of UTA Sports.
He has some huge names under his management, including LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons and Eric Bledsoe.
It’s reported Rich bought his first house when he was just 19, and Sports Illustrated has reported he’s been working from a young age.
Now, it is estimated that Rich Paul’s net worth is over $100 million – £73 million – and he’s considered one of the most powerful sports agents in the business.
He's in such high demand, that LeBron even left his own agency to join Rich's Klutch Sports Group back in 2012, before several other huge names followed suit.

Last year, the sports expert launched Klutch Conversations, which encourages financial literacy within youth.
What has Adele said about boyfriend Rich and their relationship?
Back in July 2021, Rich Paul and Adele were both spotted attending an NBA Finals game together, which caused rumours to swirl.
American sports journalist Brian Windhorst wrote at the time: “Rich Paul brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron.
“His girlfriend is Adele. 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.”
For months, the pair kept things schtum, not posting anything on their social media and haven't since been pictured out together.
However, in her new Vogue interview, Adele revealed all regarding her relationship with Rich, confirming "yes, we're together".
The star gushed over her "great" and "considerate" boyfriend, stating "I don't care who knows [about them being an item]".
Rich came along to Adele's Vogue interview, and the star sounds like she is head-over-heels as she said of her man: "He’s great. He’s so f**kng funny. He’s so smart, you know."
Who is Adele's ex-husband Simon Konecki?
Adele has been married once, to charity entrepreneur and CEO Simon Konecki, 45, with whom she shares nine year old son Angelo.
The pair started dating in 2011, just as Adele's career really took off and launched her to superstardom, and they got hitched in 2016.
They seperated three years later in 2019, but their divorce was only finalised in March 2021.
Who else has Adele dated over the years?
Prior to her marriage to Simon, Adele had a number of romances which inspired her first two studio albums, 19 and 21.
In 2006 there was “Mr 19” as he was so aptly called, nicknamed this because he inspired Adele’s first album but his identity is yet to be revealed.
The album included songs like Chasing Pavements and First Love, illustrating that the pair had a very up and down relationship.
He was also rumoured to be bisexual, and Adele’s song Daydreamer consults this after she supposedly fell in love with him before dumping him after he made a pass at her male friend.
She told The Sun at the time: “For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it. Finally, I said ‘Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it’.”
She added: “He really thought he’d had some input into the creative process by being a p****. I’ll give him the credit – he made me an adult, and put me on the road that I'm travelling.”
Then there was Alex Sturrock, the man behind her album 21 and her smash hit Someone Like You.
Adele previously called him “the love of my life.”
Following her divorce from Simon, Adele was linked to fellow Tottenham-born artist, rapper Skepta.
While she has never confirmed their romance, Adele did reveal in her Vogue interview that she "did date before Rich, but they hated it [the attention]"
She added of her recent exes: “They’d find it stressful being out or seen with me, which meant that I guarded all of it beyond. It never evolved because we were never experiencing things together."
The star sweetly reverted back to Rich, gushing that he isn't "frazzled" by the media attention.
"It feels like it’s consistent and considerate enough that I don’t care who knows.”
