Adele provided an intimate glimpse into her relationship with Rich Paul. The 34-year-old revealed the important piece of advice she receives from the sports agent that forces her outside of her comfort zone during the most recent episode of BBC Sounds’ Desert Island Discs.
The “Water Under the Bridge” singer admitted hosting Lauren Laverne that she would spend years away from the spotlight learning how to be recognized when she wants. Paul, though, was the one who urged her to go out and live.
“I believe that since we started dating, he has told me things like, “If you want to go to that restaurant, you should go there and try the food, and if you want to attend this birthday celebration, you should go there. What’s the worst that could happen? You can’t lose up on these opportunities.

Paul, 40, and Adele have been romantically involved since the summer of 2021. Since beginning their relationship, the couple has been sighted together at NBA games and even dancing the night away with LeBron James and his wife at a friend’s wedding.
Paul was photographed sharing a VIP section with Simon Konecki, Adele’s ex-husband and the father of her kid, on Friday at the singer’s concert in London’s Hyde Park.
The singer also discussed her relationship with Konecki, with whom she separated in 2019, and how their connection creates a healthy atmosphere for their son Angelo, age 9. Regarding their divorce, the “Hello” singer said to the presenter, “You know, it was never really tricky.”
“Because we’re such good friends and my kid is going through a difficult divorce, over my dead body. There aren’t any problems, and there weren’t any either. It was simpler to ensure that didn’t happen, but I was lucky to have him. He’s the best. And I definitely handled everything with grace, and I believe it paid off.
