Adele has revealed some very exciting news to her fans as she shares snaps giving a rare insight into her relationship with sports agent Rich Paul.

The British songstress posted a photo to Instagram with her partner, holding keys outside a luxurious Los Angeles home, all but confirming they are moving in together.

Fans began speculating the pair were in a relationship after they were seen at the NBA Finals last July, and it is believed they are now moving in together after dating for a year.

Adele has also been previously linked to rapper Skepta following her 2019 divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki. The pair share eight-year-old son Angelo Adkins.

Adele cops storm of criticism

Earlier this year Adele disappointed fans and copped a storm of criticism when she cancelled a much-anticipated Las Vegas show.

In January, she broke down in an Instagram video as she told fans she was cancelling her Las Vegas residency because "it just ain't ready".

The Sun also reported her relationship with Rich was strained due to the time they were forced to spend apart, and she had reportedly moved into his Beverly Hills home to patch things up.

"She was upset he couldn’t be there with her when things started falling apart with the residency and it made things difficult for them both. She needed him there, but he couldn’t because he has his own busy career too," a source said.

A New York newspaper reported that the singer, 33, cancelled her long-planned Caesar's Palace residency, Weekends with Adele, under 24 hours before the first show because of 'issues' with Paul, with some reports suggesting that relationship problems were making her incapable of performing as she was "crying through rehearsals".

Adele's transformation

Adele recently made headlines for her 45kg weight loss after the singer shared a photo on her 32nd birthday showing off her transformation.

The Rolling In The Deep singer's former trainer Pete Geracimo previously insisted she never wanted to get "super-skinny" in an Instagram post.

"As Adele's former London-based personal trainer, it's disheartening to read negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss," he wrote.

"In my personal experience of working with her through many highs and lows, she always marched to the beat of her own drum on her own terms. She never undermined her God-given talent in any way.

"She let her incredible voice do the talking, or should I say singing! She never once pretended to be something that she wasn't. What you saw was what you got. And we all LOVED it!

"When Adele and I started our journey together, it was never about getting super skinny. It was about getting her healthy. Especially post-pregnancy and post-surgery. When 25 dropped and the tour announced, we had to get ready for a 13-month gruelling schedule. In that time, she warmed to training and made better food choices.

"As a result, she lost considerable weight and people took notice. Her body transformation was splashed across every media outlet. The attention it generated was mind-blowing."
