Adele is reportedly dating Skepta following split from husband
According to tabloid newspaper The Sun, Adele and Skepta are reportedly dating.
Per the publication, the musicians, who both hail from Tottenham in North London, have been in contact since Adele split from her husband, Simon Konecki, back in April.
Watch Adele's emotional Grammys speech:
"Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up," a source told The Sun. "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. They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well."
While the claims may not be credible, the publication references that Adele was purportedly at the grime artist's 37th birthday night out at a "Crystal Maze Experience" in London two weeks ago.
The Sun also cites the fact that the 31-year-old posted a picture of Skepta on Instagram, which was captioned "Tottenham Boy", with a love heart emoji. Skepta replied with "love you", along with a red rose emoji. It is worth noting, however, that this exchange took place back in 2016.
Speaking about the interaction several months later, Skepta told IBTimes UK that it was "the sickest thing ever".
"She gassed me up. One day I was just chilling and she [shared] a picture that said 'Tottenham boy' and she's from Tottenham as well," the 37-year-old continued. "I was actually going to quit music that day, that was one of the sickest things ever. She's like the lady of Tottenham."
A representative for Skepta did not respond to the paper's request for comment, while on Monday evening a spokesman for the Hello singer said "No reply at this time".
