Adele and Rich Paul’s Relationship Timeline
Someone like him! Adele is the queen of emotional breakup songs, but in her real life, she’s been more successful at finding love. The Grammy winner was first spotted with her boyfriend, Rich Paul, in July 2021 attending Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Though that was their first time in public, a source exclusively told Us Weekly at the time that the duo had been dating “for months” before the game. “He’s very shy and keeps a low profile when they go out, whereas Adele is super sociable,” the insider added, noting that the pair managed to stay under the radar by mingling with the same inner circle. “The people they hang out with know them both personally already, so they don’t have to introduce each other, which is probably why nobody picked up on their relationship sooner.” Two months later, the couple made things Instagram official when the “Easy on Me” songstress shared a photo of the duo dressed up to attend NBA star Anthony Davis‘ wedding to Marlen P. (Paul, a sports agent, represents Davis as well as his Los Angeles Lakers teammate LeBron James.) “They’re very committed at this point and it’s hard to imagine they won’t be together for an extremely long time,” a source told Us of Adele and her beau in October 2021, adding that the twosome “complement each other” very well. “She really feels like she hit the jackpot.” The Oscar winner was previously married to Simon Konecki, with whom she welcomed son Angelo in October 2012. The former couple called it quits in April 2019 after seven years together and finalized their divorce in early 2021. “I was just going through the motions and I wasn’t happy,” she told Vogue of her marriage in October 2021. “Neither of us did anything wrong. Neither of us hurt each other or anything like that. It was just: I want my son to see me really love, and be loved. It’s really important to me.” In the same interview, the “Rolling in the Deep” singer revealed that she’d actually met Paul years before their romance began. “He was always there, I just didn’t see him,” she explained, adding that they reconnected at a party a “couple” of years earlier. “He was dancing. All the other guys were just sitting around. He was just dancing away.” That infectious charm is one of the things that captivated Adele from the start. “He’s always making her feel special and doesn’t have a single drop of selfishness or meanness in his body,” an insider told Us in October 2021.

Adele Says Fans Felt 'Betrayed' By Her Weight Loss — But She Has No Regrets
Putting herself first. Adele made headlines in May 2020 when she debuted a slimmer figure — and people have been talking ever since. The “Set Fire to the Rain” singer’s weight loss came after some major changes in her person life. As Adele’s music dominated the music world, the U.K. native started to focus largely on her family. After welcoming son Angelo in 2012, Adele released her next album three years later. She tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend Simon Konecki in 2018 before the couple decided to call it quits the following year. As the songwriter largely chose to keep herself out of the spotlight, her personal trainer, Pete Geracimo, offered a glimpse at Adele’s investment into her health in May 2020. “When Adele and I started our journey together, it was never about getting super skinny. It was about getting her healthy. Especially post-pregnancy and post-surgery,” he wrote via Instagram at the time. “When 25 dropped and the tour announced, we had to get ready for a 13 month grueling schedule. In that time, she warmed to training and made better food choices. As a result, she lost considerable weight and people took notice.” Five months later, Adele showed off her hard work during her first Saturday Night Live hosting gig. In her monologue, the Oscar winner discussed her weight loss, saying, “I know I look really, really different since you last saw me, but actually because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and only bring half of me, and this is the half that I chose.” After her memorable appearance on the sketch show, Alan Carr addressed the comments being made about his friend Adele’s dramatic change. “She’s always been gorgeous with those eyes and those lips,” Carr said during an episode of the U.K. morning show Lorraine in October 2020. “With Adele, you sort of miss the point if you’re just worried about what size knickers she wears, ‘cause it’s the voice. It’s that inspirational, awesome voice! If the voice got skinny, I’d say [there’s a problem].” The following year, Adele spoke about why she chose to visit the gym more which lead to an almost 100 pound weight loss over the course of two years. “I had the most terrifying anxiety attacks after I left my marriage,” she explained in her CBS tell-all interview in November 2021. “They paralyzed me completely and made me so confused because I wouldn’t be able to have any control over my body.” She noted that working out helped her mental state and that became her priority. “I had such trust [with my trainer]. And when I worked with him, I had less anxiety. I wasn’t even bothered by my weight but by doing that, it helped me with a lot of things,” Adele shared at the time.

Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung's Relationship Timeline
A perfect fit! Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung have one of Hollywood’s sweetest love stories — and they’re still making fans swoon on the regular. The pair started dating in 2012 but had been aware of each other long before then. “[We met] like 10 years ago,” Chung told Us Weekly exclusively in December 2017. “But I was barely starting off, Bryan was working. We just so happened to recently work with the same producers … and they kept talking about this Bryan guy. I was like, ‘Who is this Bryan guy?’” The Lovecraft Country actress thought Greenberg was “really cute” before they finally “hit it off.” They met up in New York City and went on one date — but wouldn’t find each other again until one year later. “It really was like missed opportunities, missed timings, different cities and then finally we ended up in the same city together,” Chung told Us. Although it took a few years, the duo finally found their happy ending. On October 31, 2015, the Good Guy actor and Chung exchanged vows after an elaborate, three-day celebration. One month after tying the knot, Greenberg told Us that his wedding day was “one of the best days” of his life. Even amid their busy work schedules, the couple still find time dedicated to only each other. One of the strongest aspects of their relationship, however, is that they both value their freedom. “We both have our own things, our own interests, our own hobbies, but there are other things that bring us together,” Chung explained to Us in December 2017. “I do think that we live — not separate lives — but kind of. I mean, I spent six months in Atlanta and Bryan was working in New York, but I really do think it’s having something you love but it’s just really yours. A little bit of independence.” Greenberg agreed, telling Us at the time, “It’s really a long-distance relationship when you think about it. But for us — I can’t speak for other people or other relationships — but for us there’s just a lot of trust and enjoying the times that we have together and being present.” Scroll down to relive Greenberg and Chung’s longtime love.
