The NBA super-agent was spotted wining and dining the Rolling In The Deep singer during a romantic meal at a ritzy Los Angeles restaurant on Monday, only hours before being slapped with a lawsuit by NBA star Nerlens Noel over $58 million in lost wages.

Adele, 33, and Paul, 39, were photographed exiting the popular coastal European eatery Olivetta in West Hollywood. This outing marks the second time we've seen them together in only a few short days.

New York Knicks center is alleging negligent treatment. He claims Paul cost him more than $58 million in lost wages.

In the lawsuit, Noel alleges Paul talked him out of a $70 million, four-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks in 2017 and that he was made to believe a bigger deal would be on the horizon.

"Paul began to lose interest in Noel as a client,” the documents state. Noel alleges he was ignored by his manager and mislead by officials in the firm.

Paul and his firm parted ways with Noel in December. But according to Adele's boyfriend and his firm, Noel's the one that owes them money.
