Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Adele was spotted wearing a big diamond ring on that finger, and people are speculating that she and sports agent Rich Paul are engaged. The Daily Mail reports that, over the weekend, Adele rocked the rock in front of over 4,000 fans at her Vegas show. It appears to be the same ring she wore last year to the 2022 BRIT Awards, which suggests 34-year-old Adele and 41-year-old Rich have been engaged for a year. Instagram gossip monger Deux Moi claims that, per their “very reliable sources,” the couple is planning a summer wedding. Adele’s a real tease (when it comes to gossip about her love life), so I doubt she’ll address the rumors. At least not until she uploads a tearful Instagram video to announce she’s postponing the wedding for nearly a year due to “delivery delays and COVID”.
Seen above in the same kind of duck lips-throwing “shot from above” selfie that my aunties always post on Facebook, Adele added yet another trophy to her piles of trophies when she won an Emmy this past weekend for her TV special Adele: One Night Only. Winning an Emmy put Adele just one letter closer to EGOT and she only needs to win a Tony now. Adele also got a little company in The We Just Need A Tony To EGOT Club this weekend, because Eminem, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr also won Emmys and are also just a T away from EGOT. So prepare yourselves for an Adele, Eminem, Sir Paul, and Sir Ringo collab called 21 Mile At Abbey Road: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL!
And while celebrating reaching EGO status on Instagram, Adele’s fans noticed a customized game on her coffee table that they believe could be a clue that she married her boyfriend of more than a year, sports agent Rich Paul.
Adele covers the September issue of ELLE, and, in the interview, she says that canceling her Las Vegas residency back in January was “the worst moment in my career, by far.” Oh shit, I thought Bantu Knots 2020 would be #1, but there ya go! 35-year-old Adele says that canceling the residency last minute was a tough decision, but she thought her stage set-up lacked intimacy and had “no soul.” She adds that, even though she was embarrassed, she’s proud of herself for standing up for her “artistic needs.” Adele also dishes about her relationship with Rich Paul; she says that they’re actually not engaged, but she’s totally obsessed with the 40-year-old sportsball agent and wants to get married again and have more kids. Adele explains that she wore the giant diamond ring on *that finger* to the BRIT Awards because she loves “high-end jewelry.” Oh dearie me, the girl’s gone cock-mad.
Last week there were rumors that Adele and Rich Paul had split after the 40-year-old sports agent missed her 34th birthday to party with LeBron James in Miami. Back in January, there was talk that Adele cancelled her Vegas residency cuz of relationship drama, but the very next month she wore a giant diamond ring on that finger and played coy during an interview on The Graham Norton Show. Damn, there haven’t been this many conflicting reports since the day after the Titanic sank! (pause for laughter)
Cut to this week when Adele made her current relationship status crystal clear. First “an insider” told People that the couple was still together and they went to Napa Valley for dinner on Sunday. Then, last night Adele Instagrammed a bunch of pictures of her and Rich, with the caption “Time flies,” followed by kiss, star, and heart emojis. And you definitely don’t post that kind of content if you’re broken up! Errr, unless you’re Andrew Garfield’s ex.
Last night, Adele filmed an appearance on The Graham Norton Show and she talked about postponing her Vegas residency. 33-year-old Adele explained that she really tried to get the show ready in time, but “it would have been a really half-assed show and I can’t do that.” But Adele promises fans that the residency will be rescheduled for sometime this year because she’s planning on having a baby next year. “Oy, me ovaries are singin’! Me man betta put a baby in me fanny, STAT!”
Well, I guess that’s one way to kill the rumors that there’s trouble in paradise? When in doubt, show up to a high-profile event while wearing a massive 10lb pear-shaped rock on the most suspicious of fingers. At least that’s what Adele did yesterday when she attended the 2022 BRIT Awards. Adele did what Adele does, which is that she shows up at award ceremonies and walks away with an armful of trophies. But things were a little different this time around because it was impossible not to notice the huge diamond ring on her left-hand ring finger.
