Grammy award-winning singer Adele confirmed that she tied the knot with Rich Paul after dating for a few years. Per reports, the singer had the sports agent sign a prenup, perhaps to avoid a repeat of her being vulnerable in the case of a divorce.

The "Hello" singer was previously married to Simon Konecki from 2016 to 2019, and both shared a son, Angelo, who was born in 2012. Reports claim that Adele had to part with a chunk of her wealth as the duo did not sign a prenup.

Having found love again in the hands of Rich Paul, Adele seems to be taking no chances if they ever split in the future. The singer and the American sports agent recently dated for over two years before "secretly" tying the knot, as Adele confirmed during Alan Carr's comedy show in Los Angeles.

However, it is understood that Adele made her new hubby sign a prenup, something she did not do with her ex Simon Konecki. Reports also have it that the singer was "convinced" by her concerned friends to protect her $220 million fortune, having lost a significant part of her net worth when she split with Konecki.

Per a source, the issue of having to sign a prenup did "cause some friction" between Adele and Paul, but it appears to have all been sorted out.

While Adele has been more outspoken in the relationship, Paul has also spoken lovingly about the singer on some occasions.

Last month, he stated that being with Adele has been great while addressing marriage speculations during an interview on "CBS Morning" with host Gayle King.

"She's been great, I think she would agree that we definitely helped each other," the 41-year-old said of the "I Drink Wine" hitmaker.

He added at the time, "I'm in a good space, we're in a good space. Happy. She's superb. She's been great for me. We've been great for each other."

The sports agent also playfully evaded the question about whether Adele should be referred to as "Mrs. Paul." He said, "You can say whatever you want," before adding that the information was not for the media.
