Also present at the game was global pop icon Adele. Interestingly enough, she wasn’t alone as right there beside her was LeBron James’ agent Rich Paul.

The 15-time Grammy winner and LeBron James’ longtime confidant sparked dating rumors, and there’s buzz that they’re legitimately an item. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst even called Adele Paul’s girlfriend.
“Rich Paul, his agent, brings his girlfriend to the game to sit next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele. Rich Paul is at the game with Adele. LeBron is watching the game with Adele. This is the first time that they’ve come out in public together.”

One fan connected the dots on a recent profile of Rich Paul by Isaac Chotiner of the New Yorker from back in May. There it was mentioned that LeBron’s agent was “hanging out” with a certain “major pop star”.
One afternoon in Beverly Hills, Paul and I walked into his living room with Mendelsohn. “She was over yesterday,” Paul said. Mendelsohn clarified whom he meant, dropping the name of a major pop star. “Doing what?” he asked.
“Hanging out,” Paul replied.
Could that Paul dropping that he was indeed seeing Adele? Someone better ask LeBron James to spill the tea.
