Adele Reportedly Dating Rapper Skepta After Filing For Divorce From Husband


Adele has reportedly found romance with rapper Skepta.

Six months after announcing her separation from estranged husband Simon Konecki, the “Hello” musician has been spending a lot of time with the 37-year-old grime star, The Sun reported Monday (September 30). “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,” an insider told the publication.

The news comes weeks after Adele filed for divorce from Konecki.

Skepta, whose real name is Joseph Adenuga Jr., also hails from Adele’s native Tottenham, North London. Less than two weeks ago, the 31-year-old songbird supposedly appeared at the “Greaze Mode” artist’s birthday party at the Crystal Maze experience in London. “They’re spending more and more time together,” the source added. “Some of their friends are hoping and predicting they could end up being a great couple one day.”

Both stars are parents: Adele has a son, Angelo, 6, with Konecki, and Skepta became a father last November. Per the source, “They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well.”

Did we also mention the pair have been longtime friends?

“Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going,” he once told ES Magazine in 2016. That same year, the “All I Ask” singer celebrated Skepta’s Mercury Prize win by posting a photo of him on her Instagram page captioned “Tottenham Boy” along with a heart emoji.

“She gassed me up. One day I was just chilling and she [tweeted] a picture that said ‘Tottenham boy’ and she’s from Tottenham as well,” he told IBTimes UK of her post. “I was actually going to quit music that day, that was one of the sickest things ever. She’s like the lady of Tottenham.”
