Everything you need to know about Skepta, Adele’s rumoured new boyfriend

Skepta and Adele have been friends for years

Skepta and Adele have shared a deep connection over music and live in the same neighbourhood of Tottenham, London.

“Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check,” Skepta said in a 2016 interview with the Evening Standard. “She speaks to me about how things are going.”

Skepta has a 2-year-old daughter

Skepta has a daughter River, who was born in 2019. Adele also has an eight-year-old son Angel Adkins, with her ex Simon Konecki.

The two were first believed to be an item in 2019

After their respective relationship breakdowns, Skepta and Adele reportedly looked out for one another.

The Sun reported that the two celebrated the rapper’s 37th birthday together in London in October 2019 – just six months after she split with ex-husband Simon Konecki.

“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,” a source told The Sun. “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.”

All went quiet for a while until June 2020 when Skepta wrote a flirty comment on Adele’s Instagram, and fans were led to believe the pair were back on.

Skepta may have possibly written a song dedicated to Adele

Lyrics from Skepta’s song ‘Mic Check’ in his 2020 album ‘Insomnia’, are reportedly about Adele.

“Can you handle the fame? You know you’re f—ing with a star. When you’re f—ing with me, they talk about you in the press.”

However, this has never been confirmed.
