Hello Twitch streamers, it's me, Adele.

The Grammy winner accidentally crashed her partner Rich Paul's in-person Twitch chat with influencer Kai Cenat. The streamer was chatting with the sports agent when Adele FaceTimed him. As Kai both looked down at Rich's phone, he looked shocked and star-struck.
Rich answered the call and the singer greeted her partner, saying, "Hi baby." He responded, "I'm streaming, I'ma call you right back."
Adele replied, "Oh my god! Where are you streaming?" Her partner explained, "I'm streaming with my guy Kai."
The Twitch star then chimed, giving her a wave and saying, "Hi Adele! Hi!" The singer responded with a cheerful, "Hi darling! OK, have fun."
And after the call ended, Kai was nothing short of star-struck. He joked to Rich, "Who's that?" before starting to sing Adele's hit song "Hello."
The "Rolling in the Deep" singer and Rich, who represents top NBA stars such as LeBron James, have been in a relationship since 2021. And while they largely keep their romance private, they have been spotted at basketball games. And Rich served as the Adele's plus one at the 2023 Grammys earlier this year.
In December, Rich supported Adele at one of her Weekends With Adele concert residency shows in Las Vegas. There, the singer sang "Happy Birthday" to him onstage to celebrate him turning 41.
The two have rarely spoken about their relationship in the press. But in 2021, Adele, 34, gushed about her boyfriend on her CBS special Adele One Night Only last November. "He's just hilarious. He's so funny," she said. "And very smart. Very, very smart. It's quite incredible watching him do what he does and just the easiness of it and very smooth."
Adele, who in 2021 finalized her divorce from Simon Konecki, with whom she shares son Angelo, 10, added that her relationship with Rich is "the first time I've loved myself and been open to loving and being loved by someone else."
