Adele shook her fans when she stepped out with sports agent Rich Paul at a recent NBA playoffs game.

The 33-year-old singer's romance with Rich, 39, may have taken many by surprise, fans of Adele reckon they have unearthed clues to her relationship which show she has been dating Rich for a few months.

The pair seemed happy and comfortable in each other's company as they got cosy at the game between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Phoenix Suns last week.

Some of the singer's fans are now pointing to an interview in The New Yorker nearly two months ago as proof that the romance had been blossoming since the middle of May, at least.

Rich, who is the agent for NBA superstar LeBron James, told the publication that he had been "hanging out" with a major pop star.

In the interview from May 31, Rich also told the publication that "she was over yesterday" but didn't allude any further to who he was talking about.

Rich was joined on the interview by his colleague, Adam Mendelshohn, who pushed him to open up on the reasons why he was hanging out with the mystery pop star.

Rich said: “Why not?”

He then looked to expand on his relationship status, saying to the publication: “I’m not dating, I’m single. Put that in the story."

Despite claims that they are just "hanging out", ESPN reporter Brian Windhorst put a more committed label on their relationship when speaking on his The Lowe Post podcast.

He revealed: "This is the first time they’ve come out in public together, so this will be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow.”

He was not the only one who thought there was more than friendship going on, as E! News reported that a source told them after the game that Adele and Rich were a couple.

The pair are yet to comment on the speculation about their reported relationship.
