Adele and Rich sparked romance rumors after they were spotted attending the NBA Finals in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday, July 17.

Rich was additionally spotted in the background of a fan photo as Adele hugged rapper Lil Wayne backstage.
The romance speculation was further fuelled after ESPN presenter Brian Windhorst referred to the Grammy-winning singer as Rich's "girlfriend." "Rich Paul, (LeBron James') agent, brings his girlfriend to the game sitting next to LeBron. His girlfriend is Adele," Brian said during "The Lowe Post" podcast. "Rich Paul is at the game with Adele. This is the first time they've come out in public together, so this will be all over the tabloids, especially in England tomorrow."
