Well, this is unexpected…

The rumor mill is in overdrive, as it’s been speculated that Adele is moving on from ex-husband Simon Konecki. And the person she’s moving on with is none other than UK grime artist Skepta.

Did anyone see this coming?

According to several sources, friends close to the 31-year-old Oscar-winning singer have said that Adele and Skepta – real name Joseph Junior Adenuga – have already been on several dates with each other.

They were even spotted celebrating Skepta’s 37th birthday at London’s Crystal Maze Experience just two weeks ago.

Their friends predict that they could very well become an official couple…

“Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up,” a source told UK tabloid The Sun.

“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.”

The source also said that both Adele and Skepta are on the same page when it comes to keeping their personal lives private, as well as making their children their top priority.

(Adele has 6-year-old son, Angelo, while Skepta is the father to a baby daughter, River.)

“They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well,” the source added.

After some digging, it turns out that Adele and Skepta have actually been in each other’s lives for years…

“Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going,” Skepta said in an interview way back in 2016.

Also in 2016, Adele – a proud Tottenham native – posted a picture of the rapper with the caption, “Tottenham Boy” and a heart emoji.

We think that they would make a great couple – and who knows, maybe a musical collaboration could even be on the cards?
