MIAMI — Boys’ night!

Rich Paul was spotted partying with LeBron James in Miami on his girlfriend Adele’s 34th birthday — with the “Easy on Me” singer nowhere in sight.

The sports agent, who went public with Adele last summer, was seen hanging out with his client James as well as Kevin Love, Stephen Ross and Maverick Carter at the American Express Presents Carbone Beach dinner party Thursday night as Formula 1 took over Miami.

Paul, 40, was seen schmoozing with his friends at the bar and posing for photos at the $3,000-a-head exclusive dinner party.

Other stars at the Major Food Group fête included Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, chef Mario Carbone, DJ Hannah Bronfman and driver Pierre Gasly. Andrea Bocelli also delivered a surprise performance.

Meanwhile, Adele celebrated her birthday with an Instagram post reflecting on her 33rd year.

“What a difference a year makes! If time keeps healing and smoothing out all the creases in my life like it does as the years fly by, then I can’t wait to be 60!” she wrote Thursday, adding, “I’ve never been happier!”

She continued, “So many lessons, so many blessings to be grateful for. This is 34, and I love it here! Thank you for the birthday love as always x.”

Adele’s pals also posted several photos to their Instagram Stories in which she was seen having a low-key pajama party in celebration of her D.O.B.

It is unclear whether Paul and the Grammy-winning artist had celebrated together earlier, and her rep did not immediately respond to our request for comment.

Adele and Paul first sparked dating rumors when they were spotted sitting together at Game 5 of the NBA Finals in July 2021. Days later, Page Six exclusively confirmed that they were an item.

The duo went on to make several public appearances together before going Instagram-official in September 2021, when Adele shared a snap of them with a simple red heart emoji as the caption.

In February, the “Someone Like You” vocalist played coy about any engagement plans with Paul but did reveal that she was ready to have another baby.

“It is absolutely 100 percent happening this year. It has to happen this year because I’ve got plans for next year,” she said on “The Graham Norton Show” ahead of her Las Vegas residency. “Imagine if I have to cancel because I am having a baby?”

Their relationship hasn’t been without its drama, though. Adele holed up with Paul after angering fans by postponing her residency, but an insider told Page Six in February, “She and Rich had been fighting, and their relationship was volatile before she canceled her dates.”

The source continued, “Adele is very emotional and dramatic. He’s an NBA guy who has to go on the road — they are very different — and they hit a rough patch.”

We also reported that Adele was constantly sobbing and shouting on the phone with her boyfriend during rehearsals.
