British singer, Adele, has nothing but paise for her new boyfriend, 39-year-old US sports agent, Rich Paul.
The 'Hello' singer who recently opened up on her divorce from ex-husband, Simon Konecki, described his replacement as "smart and funny," adding that "we're very happy".
Adele and Paul who is the agent to NBA superstar, Lebron James, were first seen out together in public at an NBA finals game in July.
However, UK Sun reports that the couple went Instagram official last month at basketball star Anthony Davis's wedding.
Speaking to, she said: "I did date before Rich, but they hated it. They'd find it stressful being out or seen with me, which meant that I guarded all of it beyond. It never evolved because we were never experiencing things together.
"Whereas he's not frazzled by it at all. It feels like it’s consistent and considerate enough that I don’t care who knows.
"He's great. He's so f**king funny. He's so smart, you know."
