Adele sparks marriage rumours after calling Paul Rich her ‘husband’ at Las Vegas show

Adele has stirred speculation after subtly remarking that she’s married during her latest Las Vegas residency show over the weekend.

During the September 16 show, a concertgoer jokingly proposed to the crooner in a video captured by another fan.

Adele, 35, replied to the fan’s tongue-in-cheek proposal by saying, “You can’t marry me. I’m straight, my love, and my husband’s here tonight,” referring to her partner of two years, NBA agent Rich Paul, 41.

The fan asked Adele if she’d be willing to “try”, to which the singer quipped, “No, I don’t want to try! I’m with Rich… you’re crazy, leave me alone.”

The clip was posted to TikTok and fans immediately began speculating whether the songstress was joking or serious about marrying her beau of two years.

Adele has attracted persistent marriage rumours since she first began dating Paul in July 2021, when the pair were spotted on a date.

The couple met at a mutual friend’s birthday party and immediately hit it off.

“I was a bit drunk,” Adele revealed in a 2021 interview with Vogue. “I said, ‘Do you want to sign me? I’m an athlete now.'”

“He was dancing. All the other guys were just sitting around. He was just dancing away,” the singer added.

Last year, rumours began to fly that Adele and Paul had secretly tied the knot.

Adele cleared those rumours in an interview with Elle in which she said “I’m not married. I’m not married!…I’m just in loooove! I’m happy as I’ll ever be.”

Previously, Adele was married to Simon Konecki whom she’d been with since 2011.

The couple quietly welcomed a son, Angelo, in 2012 just a year after they began dating.

After almost 10 years together, the couple filed for divorce in 2019 but remained in contact, with Adele still talking positively of Konecki in interviews following the divorce.
