Adele Reportedly Dating Rapper Skepta After Filing for Divorce From Husband
Adele might have a new man in her life.
According to The Sun, the "Hello" singer is dating British rapper Skepta following her split from husband Simon Konecki earlier this year. Sources told the newspaper the two have been on a number dates and she also celebrated his 37th birthday with him at the Crystal Maze experience in London a couple of weeks ago.
“Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up. They have a close bond and there’s definitely a special connection," the insider said. “They’re spending more and more time together. Some of their friends are hoping and predicting they could end up being a great couple one day.”
As of right now, neither Adele or Skepta have spoken out about the rumors, but given how private the superstar is about her love life, it's unlikely either of them will any time soon. “They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well,” a source added.
Also, when asked if the two are a couple, Adele's rep told reporters: “No reply at this time.”
Back in 2016, Skepta — whose real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga Jr — opened up about his close friendship with Adele during an interview with ES Magazine. “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check," he said. "She speaks to me about how things are going."
Adele even posted a photo of him on Instagram that same year.
Meanwhile, this rumored romance has come as a surprise to fans everywhere...
Adele is expected to release new music later this year.
