Reports are suggesting that Adele and grime artist Skepta are dating

Now there’s something I wasn’t expecting to wake up to this morning.

But no, you read that correctly, Adele is reportedly dating the one and only Skepta. Well according to The Sun anyway. But when are they ever right? I swear their mantra is just ‘there’s no smoke without fire.’


Who is Adele’s ex boyfriend/husband?

Apparently, the two artists – both from Tottenham – have kept in contact with one another since Adele split up with her now/soon to be ex-husband, Simon Konecki in April.

According to the newspaper, Adele was seen celebrating the rapper’s 37th birthday two weeks ago at the Crystal Maze experience in London.


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. They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well.”



Is Adele dating Skepta?

It’s hardly 100% evidence – I’m Skepta-cle (get it) until she explicitly says it.

However, it may not be so hard to believe the two are dating as not too long ago (2016 – maybe it is long ago. Is three years long?), Adele posted to Instagram about Skepta with the caption “Tottenham Boy” with a red a love heart emoji. Skepta replied to the post saying “love you” with a red rose emoji.

True love? Red roses spell love to me, even if they are on screen and not something which is sat on your fireplace making your front room look pretty.

But yes – this post was in 2016, on 15th May to be exact, so perhaps this isn’t something to take as a declaration of true love between the pair.

Skepta spoke about the post with IBTimes UK where he said it was “the sickest thing ever” that she had mentioned him in a post.


He said:


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 and she called me ‘Tottenham boy’, so I might as well quit.”

With all this being said (this totally not being a shock in any way whatsoever), neither Adele or Skepta’s representatives have confirmed the news and have indeed replied with “no comment”. People haven’t even let the poor woman split properly from her husband before they start talking about her dating someone new.

Ahh well, I guess the best way to get over someone is to… date a famous rapper?
