According to The Sun, Adele and Skepta were spotted at the Crystal Maze experience in London just two weeks ago. 

The alleged new couple reportedly went together to celebrate his 37th birthday. 

“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,” an insider told The Sun. 

“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.”

“They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well,” the source added.

In 2016, Skepta spoke about his friendship with 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 Hometown Glory singer posted a picture of the Shutdown rapper, writing: “Tottenham Boy” alongside a heart emoji. 

The Mercury Prize winner retweeted the snap and replied: “love you” with a red rose emoji.

A humbled Skepta later told IBTimes UK: “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.”
