"Adele is very much in love with Rich [Paul] and their relationship has become more serious in the last few months," a source tells E! News of the Hello singer and sports agent.

Adele was first spotted with Rich Paul, who represents LeBron James, back in July, when they attended the NBA finals together.

A source confirmed at the time that the two were indeed dating as they cosied up to one another.

They also held each other close in intimate photo booth pics shared on Instagram when they attended Lakers player Anthony Davis' recent wedding to Marlen P.

"They have both met each other's kids, but have been keeping it low-key around them," an insider shares. "They both stay at each other's places in LA, and are pretty much inseparable."

They add: "She feels really comfortable around him and is in a good headspace right now. She is all about having fun and being in good company and Rich definitely provides that."   

As for new music from the singer, Channel24 previously speculated we'd be getting something soon. Turns out we were right!

The source says Adele is "hoping" to release music in December before the holidays. Her album will talk about her divorce and "what she has been through the last couple of years", with a few upbeat songs as well.
