‘Hello’ singer, Adele, 31, has apparently developed a romance with her fellow Tottenham native, Skepta, 37, after enjoying a string of dates.
And amid reports of the blossoming romance, friends of the pair are reportedly ‘hoping and predicting’ that they go on to become a ‘great couple.’
Adele split from Simon in April this year, after seven years together.
According to The Sun, the chart-topper joined Skepta to help celebrate his 37th birthday at the Crystal Maze Experience in London just two weeks ago.
A source revealed to Daily Mail: ‘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.”
The insider added: ‘They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well.’
Adele shares a son, Angelo, with Simon while Skepta – real name Joseph Junior Adenuga Jr – became a father in November.
The reports come after the pair have spoken about each other in high regards to the press and made it clear of their fondness on social media.
In 2016, Skepta said of Adele to ES Magazine: ‘Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.’
While in the same year, the Someone Like You hitmaker posted a picture of the Shutdown rapper, writing: ‘Tottenham Boy’ alongside a heart emoji.
