A source close to the 32-year-old singer recently confirmed her relationship with the 38-year-old rapper, telling People, "things have been heating up" between the two in recent months. "They run in the same circles in London, and she's having fun," the insider added.
As fans know, Adele and Skepta have been friends for years. According to additional sources, the pair, who has been romantically linked for nearly a year, shares a "deep connection over music." Not only that, but they also have a lot in common outside of their careers, including their shared home neighborhood of Tottenham, London, and being parents to young children, the mag reports.
"Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check," Skepta — who has a 2-year-old daughter, River, from a previous relationship — said in a 2016 interview with the Evening Standard, per People. "She speaks to me about how things are going."
Adele filed for divorce from estranged husband Simon Konecki in September 2019 after seven years together. The former couple shares a son, seven-year-old Angelo Adkins.
Since their split, Adele has "been a lot more social and opened up quite a bit," the insider close to the "Hello" singer told People.
Late last month, The Sun reported that Adele is "basically in a relationship" with Skepta. A source later told the outlet, "Adele and Skepta 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."
