Adele says she’s “obsessed” with her boyfriend Rich Paul and has “never been in love like this”.

The 34-year-old confirmed her relationship with the American sports agent in September last year.

Despite being very protective of her private life in the past, she spoke about wanting to get married and have more children in a new interview with Elle magazine.

However, despite rumours Adele and Paul were engaged which circulated earlier this year, she said that was not the case.

Adele shares son Angelo with her ex-husband, charity boss Simon Konecki, who she split from in April 2019.

Their divorce was finalised in March 2021, with the former couple sharing custody of their son.

Speaking about her new relationship in the interview, Adele said: “I’ve never been in love like this. I’m obsessed with him.”

More on Adele

Forty-year-old Paul is the founder of management company Klutch Sports Group, which represents high-profile basketball stars including LeBron James, Anthony Davis and John Wall.

Adele, who now lives in Los Angeles, said despite her dream of growing her family, her focus at the moment is on her upcoming Las Vegas residency.

Fans were devastated after the singer’s planned residency at Caesars Palace earlier this year was scrapped at short notice.

At the time Adele said she was “gutted” to have to pull the shows, and later spoke about the “brutal” backlash to the decision not to go ahead.

In July, she announced new dates for the delayed gigs, saying they would take place from November to March.

Adele said: “I definitely want more kids. I’m a homemaker and I’m a matriarch, and a stable life helps me with my music. But right now, all I got in my brain is Vegas.”

“I wanna f****** nail it.”

Speaking about her upcoming Las Vegas shows she said: “I want to tell the story of the beginning of my career to now.

“I’m not gonna give too much away about it, but the show grows. It’s all about the music, and it’s really, really nostalgic.

“It’s gonna be really beautiful… I haven’t got any bullet points, obviously, when I talk. That’s why my shows are so erratic. One time I gave, like, an hour speech about an aquarium!”.

Adele released her Brit award-winning fourth album, 30, back in 2021. She has previously described it as her “divorce record”.

Ahead of its release, she gave a two-hour interview to Oprah Winfrey, aired on US network CBS.

Adele stars on the cover of the October 2022 issue of Elle UK and its American counterpart, Elle US, as well as featuring on global Elle covers across the world.
