Adele sparked engagement rumours with boyfriend Rich Paul this week after she donned a dazzling diamond ring at the BRIT Awards.
While she hasn’t spoken out on the rumours, the 33-year-old singer previously admitted that she ‘missed’ marriage following her divorce from Simon Konecki and recently hit out at claims that her relationship with Rich was on the rocks.
As one of Hollywood’s hottest new power couples, the pair would have a combined net worth of £250 million if they were to tie the knot, with the duo both respected in their fields and earning a whopping nine properties between them.
However, doubt has been cast on whether Adele is indeed engaged or if this is an elaborate ploy to generate more headlines, and in turn an increased profile.
Back in 2012, Adele attended the BRITs with another giant diamond ring on her finger, with the rumour mill going into overdrive that then-boyfriend Simon had popped the question.
The singer did not address the rumours until three months later, when she tweeted that she was ‘not engaged’, while thanking fans for sending her birthday messages.
Adele never revealed she was engaged to Simon, but confirmed they had married in 2018 – with the couple filing for divorce the following year.
Now, as Adele hints that she’s set to walk down the aisle once again, MailOnline takes a look at Rich and Adele’s combined wealth.
