Rumor Has It: Adele Dating Rapper Skepta
Hello from the other side: Adele reportedly is rebounding from her divorce with UK rapper Skepta, and Twitter is shocked, confused, excited and opinionated.
The two "have been in constant touch since Adele’s split from husband Simon Konecki this April," RadarOnline reports. "The singer even celebrated the rapper’s 37th birthday with him at the Crystal Maze experience in London less than two weeks ago."
Meanwhile, a source tells The Sun, "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."
It seems Adele and Skepta have been friends since at least 2016 after allegedly being introduced by mutual friend Stormzy. That year, Skepta told ES Magazine, "Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check."
Are you surprised she's moving on so quickly after splitting from her husband? That seems to be the general consensus of Twitter, and that they're an unlikely couple.
