Grammy-winning singer, Adele is reportedly dating British-Nigerian star Skepta following her split from husband Simon Konecki (since April) with whom she shares a son.

Adele had filed for divorce from her husband, Simon Konecki back in April 2019.

According to The Sun: “The music superstars, who both hail from Tottenham, have been in regular contact since 31-year-old Adele’s marriage split in April. And she celebrated the grime star’s 37th birthday during a night out at the Crystal Maze experience in London less than two 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,” a source told the news outlet.

“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.”

Adele was also on hand to celebrate Skepta’s 37th birthday at the Crystal Maze experience in London on September 19.

While Adele shares a 7-month-old son with ex-husband Konecki, Skepta became a father in November.

“They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well,” the source added.

In the past years, Adele and Skepta have spoken about each other in high esteem either to the media or on social media.

In 2016, the rapper told ES Magazine that “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”

The same year, Adele shared a picture of Mercury Prize winner Skepta and wrote “Tottenham Boy” alongside a heart emoji.

In his retweet, Skepta wrote “love you” coupled with an emoji of a red rose.

Speaking about the moment, months later with IBTimes UK,  Skepta said “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 added.

In May, Skepta teamed up with Nigerian Afrobeat star, Wizkid, on a song in ‘Ignorance is Bliss,’ his 13-track album.

The rapper had also appeared alongside Drake on Wizkid’s remix for ‘Ojuelegba’. Skepta would later feature the Afrobeat star in his single ‘Energy’ in 2018.
