Did Adele and Rich Paul break up? Singer canceled Vegas concert over problems with beau
Adele's sudden decision to cancel her Las Vegas concerts left her fans disheartened and furious, many of whom had spent up to $30,000 on tickets. The singer was all set to make her comeback to live performances with a series of gigs at Ceaser's Palace in Las Vegas, but unfortunately, it had to be put on hold. On January 20, the singer appeared visibly distraught while sharing the news to millions of her fans in a Twitter video. Ever since then, speculations and rumors have been rife about the real reason behind Adele canceling her 'Weekends With Adele' residency just 24 hours before the first show.
Earlier, few sources spilled the beans that it was the singer’s apparent diva attitude and weird demands that led to the cancellation of the shows. However, it has now come to light that the singer pulled the plug on her concert due to ongoing issues with her boyfriend Rich Paul. Though the present status of their relationship remains unknown, an insider source stated, "There's trouble in paradise. That's why she can't perform."

Adele and Rich Paul sparked dating rumors way back in July last year when the pair were spotted together at the NBA Finals between Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks. Paul happens to be an NBA sports agent representing the likes of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Eric Bledsoe, John Wall, Ben Simmons, among others. With a net worth of $46 million, Paul was included in the World's Top 10 Most Powerful List in 2020.
Latest insider reports suggest that all might not be well between the 'Easy On Me' singer and her American beau. In fact, right before the cancellation of her show, Adele had been crying through rehearsals and interrupted sessions to take phone calls with Paul. Right after she announced the cancellations, Adele even flew from Las Vegas to Los Angeles, to be with her boyfriend. She was later papped while leaving Paul's place in a car.
However, while speaking to her fans, Adele cited the reason for the cancellation to be Covid and delivery delays. "My show ain't ready. 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," the singer tearfully admitted on a video.
Though it is not certain what exactly caused the issues between Adele and Rich Paul, her decision to cancel the show because of relationship troubles was dubbed 'unprofessional' by many of her disappointed fans. According to Page Six, the stresses in Adele's relationship "have caused her to be in a place where she was just not confident moving forward." Journalist Scott Roeben also remarked, "You can't focus if you're not where you need to be in your head."
