Adele sparked marriage rumors during her recent Las Vegas residency performance when she referred to herself as a “wife” while discussing her partner Rich Paul’s love for American football and her difficulty understanding the game’s rules.
During the show, Adele said, “I just don’t understand the game, and it’s so annoying because I’m actually quite a clever person. I’m not the greatest person, I’m not the greatest wife, really, when it comes to football, even though my partner absolutely loves it.”
This isn’t the first time Adele has hinted at her marital status. In a previous interaction with a fan who proposed to her during a concert, Adele responded by saying she couldn’t marry the fan because she is straight and her “husband” was present. She humorously added that she didn’t want to try because she was with Rich Paul.
The rumor mill has been churning with speculation about Adele’s relationship with Rich Paul, an NBA sports agent. The two were first spotted together a few months before officially confirming their relationship. Adele and Rich Paul made their relationship Instagram official in September 2021 when they shared a photo taken from a photo booth at Anthony Davis’s wedding.
While Adele hasn’t explicitly confirmed her marriage to Rich Paul, these hints have left fans intrigued and speculating about her relationship status.
