Adele is reportedly now dating Skepta, after splitting from her ex-husband Simon Konecki. The Hello singer, 31, is said to have formed a ‘special connection’ with the rapper, who hails from Tottenham just like she does, and friends of both stars are hoping for a fully fledged romance. Sources told The Sun that Adele and Skepta have been on a string of dates and are now ‘spending more and more time together’. ‘They have a close bond and there’s definitely a special connection,’ insiders say. ‘Some of their friends are hoping and predicting they could end up being a great couple one day.’

News they’re allegedly dating comes after Adele recently finalised her divorce from ex-husband Simon. The former couple announced their split five months ago, with reports later claiming Adele is ‘feeling free and moving on with her life’ after filing for divorce. She and Simon are now sharing joint custody of their six-year-old son Angelo, following the end of their three-year marriage.
