Adele has started writing a new chapter in her life, and she is not doing it alone. PEOPLE magazine has confirmed that Adele has been dating rapper Skepta for several months.
The publication spoke to a source who revealed that the romance is heating up between the two British artists.
The pop star and the rapper, whose real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga, have been close friends for numerous years, according to the source.
After Adele’s divorce, the friendship blossomed into a romantic relationship. The “Make You Feel My Love” singer and the MC are said to be doing all they can to keep the romance private, but that might be impossible because “in recent months things have been heating up.”
The magazine explained that the love affair between the duo happened organically because “they run in the same circles in London, and she’s having fun.”
Adele and Skepta share several bonds — they have special ties to the neighborhood of Tottenham, London, their passion for music, and they are both parents to young children.
Skepta has a 2-year-old daughter, River, from a previous relationship, while Adele is mom to seven-year-old Angelo Adkins, whom she shares with ex-husband Simon Konecki.
The person made this revelation about Adele’s son: “It’s been Adele’s focus to help him be successful with online schooling. They are on a good schedule.”
It was also revealed that since her divorce from husband Konecki, Adele has “been a lot more social and opened up quite a bit.”
In a past interview, Skepta spoke about his friendship with the megastar via the Evening Standard saying: “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”
Adele is also working hard on her new album that will reflect the state of the world during the health crisis.
The insider revealed: “There have been major challenges in her life and in the world. She’s working her way around all of that and will introduce it when she’s ready. She’s doing well and feeling terrific.”
Adele recently hosted Saturday Night Live, where she debuted her new figure after losing over 100 pounds.
In her opening monologue, she joked about her weight loss and stated: “I know I look really, really different since you last saw me. Because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and could only bring half of me. And this is the half I chose.”
Adele seems ready to take more risks, and her fans are ready to see the results.
