Adele has pretty much stayed mum about her boyfriend, Rich Paul. But privately, a source says she’s much more open about her hot new romance.
The reclusive singer, 33, who was first spotted in public with the powerhouse NBA agent in July and went Insta official on September 19, “played the relationship down at first by saying it’s early days, but she’s done acting coy,” dishes the source. “Adele is positively gushing to everyone that Rich is the man of her dreams."
Adele, who shares son Angelo, 8, with ex-hubby Simon Konecki, and Paul, 39, who’s a father of three, have been spending all their time together in L.A., “but she’s keen to bring him home to the U.K. so she can show him off,” spills the source. “Rich is the real deal — he’s got her back.”
As OK! previously reported, the Grammy Award winner dished some spicy tidbits on her sizzling romance during her interview with British Vogue. “Yes, we’re together," she confirmed to the outlet of Paul. "We’re very happy.”
The songwriter spilled that part of what makes her relationship with her new beau so special is his ability to handle all of the attention that comes with being her partner — something past suitors found "stressful."
Adele opened up about previous relationships, saying, “They’d find it stressful being out or seen with me, which meant that I guarded all of it beyond. It never evolved because we were never experiencing things together. Whereas [Paul's] not frazzled by it at all. It feels like it’s consistent and considerate enough that I don’t care who knows."
She also explained what went into her decision to get divorced from Konecki. “It just wasn’t right for me any more," the "Rolling In The Deep" singer admitted. "I didn’t want to end up like a lot of other people I knew. I wasn’t miserable miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first."
