British pop sensation Adele, 35, has seemingly confirmed her marriage to renowned American sports agent Rich Paul, putting an end to swirling rumors about their relationship status. This revelation came to light during a weekend comedy show in Los Angeles, featuring Adele's longtime friend, Alan Carr.

While attending this intimate event in a cozy venue accommodating about 75 people, Adele, originally from Tottenham, North London, openly declared her marital status. According to onlookers, when Carr playfully inquired if anyone in the audience had recently tied the knot, Adele enthusiastically responded with "I did!" This candid moment was shared by attendees with the celebrity gossip platform Deuxmoi, highlighting the singer's unguarded and joyful demeanor throughout the night.

Adele: Relaxed and Joyful

Adele, known for her soulful voice and chart-topping hits, was reportedly enjoying the show from the audience, actively engaging and even playfully heckling Carr, underscoring their close friendship.

Her relaxed attitude, including minimal security presence and an eagerness to blend in with the crowd, painted a picture of a star comfortable in her personal life and her public persona.

Rich Paul: Adele's Love

Rich Paul, 41, the founder of Klutch Sports Group and agent to some of basketball's biggest names, including LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers, has been a significant figure in Adele's life since their relationship went public in July 2021.

The couple, who first met at a mutual friend's birthday party, have since been a focal point of celebrity romance discussions. In a candid interview with Rolling Stone, Adele described their relationship as the "most incredible, open-hearted, easiest" one she's ever been in, praising Paul for his intelligence and sense of humor.

Despite initially denying marriage rumors in a previous Elle magazine interview, Adele expressed deep affection for Paul, hinting at a future together and the possibility of expanding her family. Paul, in a recent conversation with CBS, reciprocated these sentiments, acknowledging the mutual support and positive impact they've had on each other's lives.

He emphasized their happy and healthy relationship, adding to the narrative of a couple thriving both personally and professionally. Adele, a mother to a son from her previous marriage with Simon Konecki, which ended in 2019, has often been open about her personal struggles and healing journey.

Her friendship with Carr, dating back several years, includes memorable moments such as officiating Carr's wedding in 2018. This latest development in her life marks a new chapter for the singer, balancing her soaring career with a fulfilling personal life.
