Random, but we stan.

The stunning Adele is reportedly dating grime and rap star Skepta, in the most unlikely coupling of 2019.

This news comes after the Hello singer split from her husband Simon Konecki back in April of this year.

Sources say that the musical duo have enjoyed a number of dates, including a night at the Crystal Maze experience in London two weeks ago for the rapper’s birthday.

The insider told The Sun:

“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’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.”

Wildly, this hasn’t come as a major surprise to fans, as the pair have shown an interest in each other before, but in a non-romantic way.

Speaking to ES Magazine in 2016, Skepta said:

“Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”

The same year Adele shared a picture of Skepta to her official Instagram account and captioned it:

“Tottenham Boy,” she wrote, followed by a heart emoji.

Well folks, we’re here for this rumoured new romance.
