British pop superstar Adele recently went through a very public divorce, and now she has a new man. The popular songstress is dating the British Rapper Skepta.
Adele, 31, split from husband Simon Konecki, 45, in April. The two share a 7 year old son.
The UK’s Sun magazine reports, “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.
The mag added, “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, who is 37, is probably best known for his last famous girlfriend. Last year, he was romantically linked to supermodel Naomi Campbell, 49. The two reportedly split when Skepta allegedly had a baby with his side chick in November. The source said: “They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well.”
Hopefully Adele has better luck with the rapper than Naomi did . . .
Skepta — real name Joseph Junior Adenuga Jr — told ES Magazine in 2016: “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”
The same year Adele, whose hits include Skyfall and Someone Like You, posted a picture of Mercury Prize winner Skepta and wrote “Tottenham Boy” alongside a heart emoji.
Skepta retweeted it with the words “love you” and an emoji of a red rose.
Three months later Skepta told the website IBTimes UK: “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.”
