Well, whoop-dee-doo, Adele and Skepta are likely still dating. 32-year-old Adele, who may have finished her long-awaited album, has been linked to the 38-year-old grime rapper for about a year. Though they’ve never publicly confirmed their relationship, there’s been lots of online flirting. Now a source is telling the Mirror that Adele spent £16,000 (about $21,000 in U.S. doll-hairs) on a gold chain for Skepta’s recent birthday, and while they’re not official, it’s getting more serious. Um, I should hope so. You don’t just spend that kinda cash on a fuck boy. Unless he’s really good at… well, you know. You knooow. Babysitting your kid!

Friends say although the couple are not “official”, their romance has stepped up a gear. A source said: “Adele and Skepta have grown close in recent months and have been seeing a lot of each other. She’s been in England, and she gave him a beautiful gold chain for his birthday. He was showing friends the chain and seemed pretty hyped about it. While they’re not officially in a relationship, they are very close.”
But making it official may not be so easy. Rumor Has It (that’s a reference to Adele’s song, not that shitty Aniston/Costner flick) Skepta’s ex Naomi Campbell is still in the picture (well, not this exact picture, it’s from 2018):
According to an insider, all three stars are “locked in a love triangle” (via the Mirror):
A source says that the singer and model are both vying for the rapper’s attention, with Adele currently “having the edge”. The insider, close to Adele, claims she’s having a hell of a time with Skepta, having grown since last year. But Adele has some “serious competition”, they add, in the shape of international modelling icon Naomi.
“Adele is having a blast with Skepta,” they told heat magazine, “but she’s got serious competition from Naomi. “Adele insists it’s just fun but it’s common knowledge that both she and Naomi are crazy about Skepta – and they’re both hoping for something serious.”
Naomi’s rep denied these totally true allegations from a highly respectable source, so it looks like Adele is the winner by default. Um, did the Bantu knots pic actually work in her favor? At the very least the photo proved she has loads of backup options… I’m sure Adele is writing “Mrs. Chet Haze” in cursive all over her songwriting notebooks. Hey, it’s 2020, crazier things have happened.
