Who is Rich Paul, Adele’s new man?

Paul is a well-known sports agent in the US. According to People magazine, he is the founder of Klutch Sports Group, which represents some of the biggest names in the game such as LeBron James, Ben Simmons and Trae Young.

He was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, and dropped out of university after his father passed away from cancer. Paul is always looking out for the sports stars he represents and getting them the best transfer deals.

Having dreams of becoming a superstar athlete, Paul said in his profile in the New Yorker that he knew he had to find a different way to be in sports.

Paul’s most valuable and famous client is James, who he reportedly met in 2002 at an airport. Paul was selling vintage sports jerseys and the authentic Houston Oilers jerseys impressed James. The two have had a close and beneficial friendship since.

His partner, Adele’s body transformation over the past two years has been received well, however, fans are more concerned about the lack of music.

The award-winning musician hasn’t released an album since 25, which was six years ago.
