That’s Lord and Lady of Tottenham to you
Adele is reportedly dating grime MC Skepta, after splitting with husband, Simon Konecki.
The songstress, 31, is said to have formed a “special connection” with the grime star who, like her, hails from Tottenham.
Sources told The Sun that the two have been on a string of dates and are now “spending more and more time together.”
“They have a close bond and there’s definitely a special connection,” the source continued. “Some of their friends are hoping and predicting they could end up being a great couple one day.”
News of the two dating comes after Adele filed for divorce from Konecki last month. The former coupled initially announced their split back in April.
Skepta, (real name Joseph Junior Adenuga), who at 37, is slightly older than the Hello singer. He last dated OG supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Both Skepta and Adele are parents to one child.
In an interview from 2016, Skepta was quoted as saying, “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”
Shortly after the interview, Adele tweeted a pic of the MC with the caption “Tottenham Boy” with a heart emoji.

After seeing the tweet, Skepta said, “She gassed me up. One day I was just chilling and she [tweeted] a picture that said ‘Tottenham boy’ and she’s from Tottenham as well. I was actually going to quit music that day, that was one of the sickest things ever. She’s like the lady of Tottenham.”
If rumours are true, the two appear to be a good match. That just leaves the official portmanteau to decide on.
