Adele might have sung about finding ‘someone like her ex,‘ but that’s not exactly what she did. After splitting with her husband of three years, Simon Konecki, last April, the songstress has reportedly been going out with rapper Skepta. And both men couldn’t be farther apart from each other. According to an insider source, the Grammy award-winning singer and the grime star have been going out with each other for quite some time now. “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. 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.” shared the source.
The source also noted that, since both artists are new parents, there’s a deeper connection between the two than fans might realize. “They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well.” the source said. Though the purported couple has not publicly come out with their budding relationship, they’re slowly but surely letting everyone know now. Just recently, the “Skyfall” singer celebrated the rapper’s 37th birthday at the Crystal Maze Experience in London. More sources have come out saying that the couple spent a great deal with each other that night. Although this all seems new, Skepta has long expressed his admiration for the singer. Back in 2016, he admitted that it was the acclaimed songstress that stopped him from retiring early from the industry. “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.” he shared.
Simultaneously, Adele also surprised the grime star when she posted his photo on Twitter, with the caption, “Tottenham Boy,” alongside a heart emoji. In response, he retweeted her with a reply, “love you” alongside a rose 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. I was actually going to quit music that day, that was one of the sickest things ever. She’s like the lady of Tottenham.” he relayed at the time.
To no one’s surprise, when media outlets broke the story of their possible relationship, Adele suddenly trended on social media. Fans couldn’t help but express their shock and giddiness over the singer’s new possible boyfriend. For example, Twitter user IGZ (@igzrap) posted, “Adele and Skepta are dating 🤔 2019 keeps on 2019-ing.”. Meanwhile, user Chibuzo ‘KingAbsolute’ Anthony (@KingAbsoIute) tweeted, “Even Nostradamus wouldn’t predict Skepta dating Adele. Good luck to both, as a fan.”. And Morgan Jenkins (@morganjenkins) noted, “I hate to be trash but if the rumors are true, Adele is going to get great sex at the very least because Skepta looks like he *loses signal* And that’s that on THAT.”
