British singer Adele (34) lovingly wished her boyfriend Rich Paul (41) a happy birthday during a performance in Las Vegas. Addressing the crowd, the 34-year-old said, according to the Daily Mail: "Quick, it's my boyfriend's birthday today. I love him more than life itself, so we can wish him a happy birthday!"
She then serenaded the sports agent, who was attending the show with his daughter, along with the audience. The singer has been on stage since November for the "Weekends With Adele" concert series at the famous Caesars Palace Hotel in Las Vegas.
Adele and Rich are said to have been a couple since the summer of 2021 and moved in together in May of this year. On Instagram, the singer shared photos of couples in front of their new house, which formerly belonged to Sylvester Stallone (76).
Adele was previously in a relationship with Simon Konecki (48), with whom she has a son. After numerous rumors in 2017, Adele confirmed Konecki as "her husband" at the Grammy Awards. In April 2019, her spokeswoman announced the separation from Konecki, and the divorce became final on March 4, 2021.
For a long time, Adele had a hard time separating from Konecki. During the separation phase, she went to therapy five times a day, she explained according to the "Daily Mail" during one of her performances in Las Vegas. She is now in therapy again. "I had to start again." She wanted to be in top form for the concerts in the gambling city and found an outlet for it.
At that time, after the separation from Konecki, she used the same outlet to process her relationship problems, Adele continued. Up to five times a day. She then got by without therapy for a few years: "I stopped feeling responsible for my own behavior and the things I say." She wanted to give everything and therefore let herself be "pepped up every week". The reason: stage fright. She was "filled with fear" before live performances, but she is currently enthusiastic about her permanent Las Vegas commitment.
