According to The Sun the music superstars who both hail from Tottenham, have been in regular contact since 31-year-old Adele’s marriage split in April.
A source told The Sun: “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.
In 2016, the “Energy (Stay Far Away)” singer 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.
The Mercury Prize winner retweeted the snap and replied: ‘love you’ with a red rose emoji.
Discussing the moment, months later Skepta 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.’
Adele has a son Angelo, who turns seven this month, and Skepta became a dad in November last year. The source said: “They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well.”
Skepta — real name Joseph Junior Adenuga Jr — told ES Magazine in 2016: “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”
The same year Adele, whose hits include Skyfall and Someone Like You, posted a picture of Mercury Prize winner Skepta and wrote “Tottenham Boy” alongside a heart emoji.
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.
On Monday night a spokesman for Adele told The Sun: “No reply at this time.” A representative for the other party did not respond to the paper’s requests for comment.
Adele is reported to have filed for divorce earlier this year.
