"Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going," he said in an interview with Evening Standard.
Rumors of the two taking things to the next level first started circulating in 2019, shortly after her divorce. In September of that year, she broke things off with her husband, Simon Konecki, after seven years together. The two share an 8-year-old child, Angelo Adkins.
As reported by The Inquisitr in May, Adele was enjoying life as a single woman. She was reportedly in a great place both physically and mentally and decided to make some drastic lifestyle changes, including eating better and working out, to combat the stress of balancing her life as a singer and a single mother. She lost more than 100 pounds in the process.
Skepta's last public relationship was with Naomi Campbell in 2018, which ended around six months before Adele's divorce. The rapper also has a 1-year-old daughter, River, from another relationship.
Not long after reports of Adele having a new man hit the Internet, fans took to social media to react to the rumors. Fans were generally excited to find out she was dating the "Greaze mode" rapper, and some demanded a collaboration from the two.
"ADELE IS DATING SKEPTA. I DONT KNOW HOW TO RESPOND TO THIS," one person tweeted.
"wow adele dating skepta!!!! that makes me so happy," someone else wrote on Twitter.
"Adele and Skepta really dating. Drop the collab pls," another fan tweeted.
"Finding out Adele is dating Skepta is the best thing that happened to me," a fourth person wrote on Twitter.
