Adele hits back at rumours her relationship with Rich Paul is in trouble

Adele has hit back at rumours she cancelled her Las Vegas residency because she was having problems with her boyfriend Rich Paul. 

The singer, 33, defiantly took to Instagram on Tuesday night to address speculation over the status of her relationship and whether she would perform at the BRITs as she jokingly told her fans her sports agent partner, 40, ‘sends his love’. 

Adele confirmed she would take to the stage at this year’s ceremony, which will take place next Tuesday night, following swirling rumours she had pulled out after facing backlash for cancelling her Vegas shows at the final hour.

Adele wrote: ‘Hiya, so I’m really happy to say that I am performing at the Brits next week!!

‘Anddddd I’ll also be popping in to see Graham for a chat on the couch while I’m in town too! I’m looking forward to it! Oh, and Rich sends his love.’

Adele accompanied the caption with a beaming snap in a plunging tiger print dress- a far cry from her last post on January 20, where she tearfully told fans she could not go ahead with the residency less than a day before her scheduled debut show at Caesars Palace.

It seems the Chasing Pavements hitmaker is throwing herself back into work as she told her followers she will also appear on the Graham Norton Show.  

Adele’s sassy Instagram posts comes after The New York Daily News’s Richard Johnson reported the singer called off ‘Weekends With Adele’ residency because of issues with Rich.

A source said over the weekend: ‘There’s trouble in paradise. That’s why she can’t perform.’

Insiders close to Adele’s camp claimed that she had been crying through rehearsals and interrupting them to take phone calls with Paul.

Paul, who manages the likes of NBA star LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons, among other athletes, has been with the singer since early 2021. 

Her residency was initially supposed to open last week, with performances scheduled to run through April. 

A visibly emotional Adele tearfully told fans, many of whom were already in Sin City at the time, several different reasons behind her pushing back the residency. 

‘My show ain’t ready,’ she said.

‘We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time, and for it to be good enough for you. But we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID.’ 

Prior to news of her relationship issues, it was also reported that the delays were down to the singer being displeased with the set design, particularly over a swimming pool erected in the middle of the stage. 

Country musician star Keith Urban, who is the husband of Nicole Kidman, announced he will now be playing weekends at Caesars Palace in late March and early April. 

Adele’s cancellation prompted fears she would not go ahead with her performance at the BRITs over concerns of backlash for calling off her residency.

A source told The Sun at the weekend: ‘They are talking to her team to see if she can appear by video link. It’s a massive headache but they want her involved in any way she will agree.’

It has also been reported someone will have to accept her awards, should she be the recipient. 

‘Names already mentioned include Sam Smith, and even Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa – who are both up against Adele for awards – but they are all looking unlikely.  

‘They have also made an approach to Stormzy, in the hope that they can persuade him,’ the source said.  

Adele has received four nods at this year’s BRIT Awards: Artist Of The Year, British Pop/R&B Act, British Album Of The Year and British Single Of The Year.
