Adele firmly insisted that businessman Rich Paul agree to a highly restrictive prenup. The terms established by the artist and her lawyers aimed to safeguard her considerable fortune, valued at more than US$220 million. Sources linked to Adele revealed to the website RadarOnline that the singer hesitated when approaching the signing of the contract with her partner, but ended up being persuaded by people she trusted.
The process of presenting the terms, however, generated some tension between the singer and the manager.
A few months ago, reports surfaced that Paul had no intention of signing any prenups. A source revealed: “Adele has trust issues, which is common for her, but negotiating the prenup was a source of tension between them. She believes in love and says any issue related to money can harm a relationship. She’s correct. It was a sensitive topic for the couple.”
Despite this, the source highlighted that Adele managed to impose her will. In the event of a divorce, there is no harm to either party: Adele preserves her fortune of US$220 million, while Rich Paul maintains his funds estimated at US$120 million.
