Adele Is Reportedly Dating This Popular Hip Hop Artist
Adele is reportedly moving on, guys.
Less than six months after splitting from her husband, Simon Konecki, reports say that the “When We Were Young” crooner has set her eyes on someone else. She’s allegedly seeing British rapper, Skepta, who is best known for his award-winning album, Konnichiwa (2016).
Inside Adele and Skepta’s alleged relationship
On Sept. 30, sources told The Sun that the entertainers, who are both from Tottenham in North London, have been in “regular” contact since Adele and Konecki split back in April. They’ve apparently gone on a “series of dates,” and friends believe they’ll become official really soon.
“Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up,” a source explained.” 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,” the insider continued.
The insider added: “They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well.”
(Adele has a 6-year-old son named Angelo, and Skepta had a daughter back in December of 2018.)
Adele and Skepta have history
In 2016, Skepta told ES Magazine that he regularly communicated with Adele.
“Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”
The same year, the “Hello” singer posted a photo of Skepta on Instagram, captioning it “Tottenham Boy” alongside a heart emoji.
In response, he retweeted the post, adding “love you” and a rose emoji.
Skepta opened up about the moment three months later to the website IBTimes UK, saying, “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.”
As of writing, they have not commented on the current nature of their relationship.
Why Adele and Konecki broke up
Neither Adele or Konecki has commented on the reason for their split. However, a source previously offered up an idea.
An E! News insider said back in April that they had simply “grew apart.” Adele and Konecki had started dating in 2011 and married in 2016.
“They had a lot in common early on, but eventually they just grew apart,” the insider explained. “She became a bigger and bigger star, and he was okay [with] being in the background, but as she got bigger and had massive tours and intense schedules, they just grew apart.”
The divorce could cost a lot of money, but the E! News source maintained that things will stay “amicable,” given that they want to have a healthy co-parenting relationship for the sake of their son.
Only time will tell what happens, but we wish all parties the best. Who knows — maybe Skepta and Konecki will even meet one day.
