Adele gave fans something to talk about during her show on Saturday night in Las Vegas.
The “Easy On Me” singer left people wondering if she was in trouble after she referred to boyfriend Rich Paul as her “husband” while working in front of the crowd at her sold-out residency at Caesars Palace.
In one TikTok video At the concert, Adele is seen trying to gently reject a swooning female fan who has just asked for her hand in marriage.
“You can’t marry me,” she said to the woman. “I’m straight, my love, and my husband is here tonight.”
When asked if she would still try, the 16-time Grammy winner shook her head and told the fan, “No, I don’t want to try. I’m with Rich. You’re crazy, leave me alone.” (The woman seemed to respond with good humor.)
Online, Adele fans were quick to celebrate Mrs. Rich Paul.
“Her husband??? omgg Adele Paul???,” one person wrote in a TikTok comment.
“No stop. MOTHER IS MARRIED??” another wrote.
Neither the star nor her sports agent boyfriend made any subsequent announcements. Representatives for Adele did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Adele and Paul’s romance became public in the summer of 2021 after they were spotted together at Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Phoenix.
Although she remains largely silent about the relationship, Adele said Rolling Stone that she and Paul have an “incredible, open-minded and easy-going” partnership.
After the “Hello” singer was spotted wearing a pear-shaped diamond on her left ring finger, she dismissed any speculation about an engagement. I tell Elle magazine: “I just love high-quality jewelry.”
Adele separated from her ex-husband Simon Konecki in 2019 after three years of marriage. They share a 10-year-old son, Angelo.
