Adele and the agent of NBA basketball star LeBron James’ are not having a serious romance, it is claimed.
The Someone Like You hitmaker, 33, was romantically linked to Rich Paul after the pair were spotted together at an NBA Finals game in Phoenix, Arizona earlier this month.
The duo then appeared to confirm their relationship when they were seen putting on a cosy display during a dinner date last week.
It has now been alleged that the singer and the sports entrepreneur, 39, are enjoying a casual relationship..
One of Adele’s pals told People : “It’s not super serious, but they’re having a good time. They have mutual friends in common, so that’s been nice. She’s having fun and being social,’ the friend said, adding: “[Adele] has relaxed a lot. She’s not quite as private as when she was married.”
“She is living her life and doing great. She is having a great summer with [her son] Angelo. They are spending most of their time in LA.”
Adele and her new man were seen getting cosy on a double date at a New York City eatery last Thursday.
Rich wrapped his arm around the singer as they headed inside the swanky restaurant, and looked to be in a happy mood as he was smiling constantly
The sports agent appeared to stroke her back at one point.
Adele flashed a peace sign while she waited outside the restaurant, suggesting she was enjoying herself too.
It is claimed the pair didn’t leave the restaurant until 11pm.
Prior to this the pair were seen watching the Phoenix Suns battle it out against the Milwaukee Buck.
The pop superstar was pictured laughing with Rich as the pair watched the game from the stalls.
Adele looked sensational as she made an entrance at the sporting event in a statement black coat.
The slimmed-down star oozed confidence as she stormed the stadium in the eye-catching monochrome ensemble which did wonders to highlight her impressive seven-stone weight loss.
The Hello hitmaker beamed in the gorgeous snaps as she wore her straightened blonde locks in a sleek hairstyle, while her makeup was styled to perfection.
Earlier this month ESPN announcer Brian Windhorst claimed that the pair were an ‘item’ on late-night podcast Lowe Post, saying Adele is now Rich’s “girlfriend”.
“Rich Paul brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele,” Windhorst claimed.
“’Rich Paul is at the game with Adele. This is the first time that they’ve come out in public together,” he added.
