Adele is moving on from Simon Konecki with Tottenham-born rapper Skepta.
Sources told The Sun that Adele and Skepta have formed a “special connection”.
The source said, “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. 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 are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well,” the source added. Adele has a 6 year old son and Skepta became a dad in November last year.
Skepta said in 2016, “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.” In the same year, Adele posted a picture of him and captioned it “Tottenham Boy” along with a heart emoji.
Skepta said of the post, “She 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.”
Five months ago, Adele announced her divorce from ex Simon Skepta after their 3 year marriage. The two have a six year old son together, and will be sharing custody of him post-split.
A source told The Mirror after the split, “Adele feels free and is moving on with her life. It looks like the divorce will be straightforward at this stage. They both wants what is best for their son.”
Adele’s rep said the couple is “raising Angelo lovingly. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
The two started dating in 2011, had their son in 2012, got married in 2016. They kept their marriage a secret until 2017, when Adele addressed it in her Grammys speech. She said, “Grammys, I appreciate it. The Academy, I love you. My manager, my husband and my son you’re the only reason I do it.”
OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder said Adele has recorded a new song for his band’s next album.
