Is Adele single? A look at truth behind false dating rumors with rapper Skepta, Chris Brown and past love life
Singer Adele appears to be shutting down rumors that she has a beau and rather claims to be single. The 32-year-old pop icon put an end to speculations that she has been dating anyone and indicated she is single in her Wednesday, October 28, Instagram post. She put up the post thanking the cast and crew of ‘Saturday Night Live’ for making her October 24 hosting gig at the comedy show memorable.
The post read, “Had the best time on SNL! Thank you to the most wonderful cast, crew, writers and producers. What a sublime bunch of people you are. Lorne thank you for believing in me! Lindsay my sister for life, Maya my comedy and Mama hero! Plus the so up for it audiences at both the dress rehearsal and live show! I did it for the joy of it and I hope you got some from it too! Good luck with the election America I love you so much. Look after each other and go easy on yourselves. Happy Halloween! I’m going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am! Peace out til next year.” At the end of the post, she highlighted that she is single and quashed dating rumors.
Recently many publications reported that the ‘Someone Like You’ hitmaker was dating rapper Skepta. A source told People magazine that the rumored pair “run in the same circles in London and she's having fun".
A source told People that in recent months "things have been heating up”, fueling dating rumors between the two. The publication reported that Adele and Skepta have been friends for years. They have a connection over music, their shared home neighborhood of Tottenham, London, and being parents to young children, as per sources. Substantiating this, Fox reported citing some reports that Adele and Skepta have reportedly bonded over years on the fact they come from the same area in London and both are parents to young kids: Adele has an 8-year-old son, Angelo, with ex-husband Simon Konecki, while Skepta has a daughter, 2, named River, from a previous relationship.
"Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check," said Skepta in 2016 as reported by The People which cited some media reports. "She speaks to me about how things are going."
However, The Cut reported that Adele and Skepta’s do not share a romantic love as tabloids report but rather share a platonic bond of friendship. The site reported recalling a 2016 post that Adele tweeted with a picture of Skepta with the caption, “Tottenham Boy ❤️.” As per the Cut, Skepta claimed that message convinced him to keep pursuing his music career when he was reportedly feeling discouraged. "She (Adele) 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 and she called me 'Tottenham boy', so I might as well quit."

It’s not just Skepta but also rapper Chris Brown that Adele has been linked to in the past. Media reports suggest that an eyewitness claimed that Chris Brown arrived at Adele’s London home at midnight for a party in October and didn’t leave until 2 am which sparked some dating rumors. Previosly in 2011, Adele reportedly dated charity CEO Konecki in 2011, and they welcomed their son, Angelo, in 2012. The pair tied knot in 2016, after five years of dating but divorced in 2019.
People reported that since filing for divorce from husband Konecki in September 2019 after seven years together, Adele has "been a lot more social and opened up quite a bit.” On October 24, she put her comedy skills on display while hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ for the first time. At the time of hosting, she even addressed her much-buzzed-about slim-down for the first time, saying, "I know I look really, really different since you last saw me." "Because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and could only bring half of me," she continued. "And this is the half I chose."
Besides ending dating rumors, Adele in latest Instagram post calls the show and her gig there a joyous experience. Now that she has ended the rumors on her love life, it might water down the speculations over her dating. What is officially known is that Adele filed for divorce from Konecki in September 2019 while Skepta was rumored to have previously dating supermodel Naomi Campbell. Chris Brown is reportedly in a relationship with model Ammika Harris. MEAWW reached Adele's representatives for a comment but hasn’t received a response yet on her dating rumors.
These allegations were made by the Internet and individual organizations, MEAWW cannot confirm them independently and nor does it support these claims being made on the Internet.
