Earlier this year, Adele filed for divorce from Simon Konecki, her husband of two years and father of her 6-year-old son Angelo, and we all have been collectively preparing for the saddest album of all time because of it. Well, it looks like things are about to get a lot more interesting, because there’s a rumor that 31-year-old Adele is getting with 37-year-old grime rapper Skepta (who’s from her hometown).
Skepta and Adele seem to have history as she gave him a shout out on Twitter in 2016, calling him “Tottenham Boy” and adding a red rose emoji. And friends seem excited about them going on dates three years later, a pretty slow burn, but based on his shirtless Instagram pics, worth it.
According to The Sun:
ADELE has been on a number of dates with Skepta — and friends predict they could become a couple.
The music superstars, who both hail from Tottenham, have been in regular contact since 31-year-old Adele’s marriage split in April.
A source revealed: “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.”
Skepta had a brief relationship with Supermodel Naomi Campbell early last year. But they are thought to have split after she discovered another women was expecting his daughter, River.

You know a guy who is crazy enough to knock up a woman while dating Naomi Campbell is a brave and very hot soul. That said, good luck to Adele and Skepta!! At the very least some good music will come from this union, and if doesn’t last, we know it will be a messier break-up than Brexit.
