Adele Says She's Single Amid Dating Rumors with Skepta — 5 Fast Facts about the British Rapper
Despite news making the rounds that multi-award winner, Adele and rapper Skepta are an item, Adele insists she is a single cat woman. Here's more about her rumored lover.
In recent times, there has been news going on that Grammy Award-winning singer Adele and British rapper Skepta are dating, with many tabloids reporting such.
However, amid the ongoing speculations, Adele took to her Instagram page following her recent hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live" to appreciate the show's wonderful cast and shed light on her life as a single woman.
ADELE IS A SINGLE CAT LADY
In the post, the 32-year-old singer said she had her best time on the show and described the cast, crew, writers, and producers as a sublime bunch of people.
"I'm going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am! Peace out til next year ♥️."
RUMORS BELIEVE OTHERWISE
If the singer is really single, it differs from the recent revelations in most tabloids. A source told US Weekly that Adele has been spending time with Skepta and that they have been seeing each other.
Another source also confirmed to PEOPLE that things have been heating up between Adele and Skepta in recent months, adding that they run in the same circles and that she is having fun.
Skepta is father to a 2-year-old daughter, River, whose mother's identity remains unknown to the public.
ADELE AND SKEPTA ARE LONGTIME FRIENDS
However, Adele's statement about being a single cat lady may not necessarily mean that she and Skepta are not an item, but may just mean that they are not yet exclusive.
The pair are longtime friends and were both born in Tottenham, North London. Skepta revealed during a 2016 interview that Adele speaks to him all the time and keeps him in check, showing the extent of their friendship.
The pair were first romantically linked in September last year after Adele attended Skepta's birthday party. They fuelled their romance further with some flirty comments beneath an Instagram post.
While Adele split from former husband, Simon Konecki, with whom she shares an 8-year-old son, Angelo, in April 2019, Skepta is father to a 2-year-old daughter, River, whose mother's identity remains unknown to the public.
5 QUICK FACTS ABOUT SKEPTA
Skepta, whose real name is Joseph Adenuga Jr., is of Nigerian heritage. Skepta launched his musical career in the early 2000s and has made some big hits while working with huge names in the industry like Drake, Diddy, Frank Ocean, and Asap Rocky.
Adele is not the first celebrity Skepta has been linked with, as he was previously linked with famous model Naomi Campbell in 2018.
Meanwhile, if the rumors are true, Skepta will become the latest man in the life of Adele, who has a tangled relationship history. Aside from Konecki, she also dated the mysterious Mr. 19, who her first album, "19," was about; Alex Sturrock, who inspired her album, "21," and rapper Tinie Tempah.
