Say hello to Peter Van der Veen! And nope, he’s neither a newbie Hollywood actor nor is he Adele’s boyfriend. He is—whether you believe it or not—the soulful singer’s recently hired bodyguard.
Prior to being on the books of a personal protection agency, Adele’s hunky Dutch protector used to make ends meet as a bodybuilder. After which, he was in charge of Lady Gaga’s security for five years and has also previously worked with Iggy Azalea. Nowadays, he can only usually be seen standing by Adele’s side and guarding her precious life.

Apparently, we’re not the only ones who’ve noticed.
So let’s get this straight: Adele has a new record-breaking album, a European tour, and now this hot bodyguard? Wow. The 27-year-old singer is indeed winning at life.
