Adele goes on series of dates with grime rapper Skepta after marriage breakup, friends say 'there's a special connection'
Adele has reportedly gone on quite a few dates with rapper Skepta and her friends now strongly believe that the two could eventually become a couple.
Both musicians hail from Tottenham and have been in touch with each other ever since Adele's marriage split in April. The 31-year-old 'Someone Like You' singer also helped celebrate the grime star's 37th birthday in London around two weeks ago.
According to a report by The Sun, a source shared, "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 source said. The source added that the pair have been spending a lot of time together and many people are hoping for them to get together.
Adele has a son Angelo whom she had with her ex-husband Simon Konecki while Skepta became a father in November.
"They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well," the source shared.
We had previously reported that Adele had split from Konecki after the couple began dating in 2011. According to our report, she had said earlier this year that she was ready to get back to the dating scene.
Earlier last year, Skepta had a fling with supermodel Naomi Campbell though they split up after she discovered that another woman was pregnant with Skepta's baby.
In 2016, Skepta, whose real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga Jr, shared with ES magazine, "Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going."
Later that same year, Adele had shared a picture of the Mercury Prize winner and commented, "Tottenham Boy" along with a heart emoji. He then retweeted the same comment along with the words 'Love you' and a red rose emoji.
