The Latest On Adele And Rapper Skepta

Rumors that Grammy-winning singer Adele and British rapper Skepta were dating began swirling last fall, and despite Adele's insistence that she was single at the time, those same rumors have continued to persist. It also seems that while Adele and Skepta aren't doing anything to directly confirm the rumors, they certainly aren't going out of their way to deny them, either.

In fact, the two were recently spotted shopping together in San Bernardino, California. Fans spotted Adele and Skepta shopping at the discount Prada store in San Bernardino's Cabazon Outlets, and from what it sounds like, they had a pretty standard shopping trip together.

A source told Page Six, "She was sitting watching him while he was picking sweaters, pants, trying on jackets and coats and having the employees help him. She was giving him feedback and saying what she thought he looked great in. It was cute that just waiting and being a normal girlfriend while he looked. He must have shopped for 45 minutes."

Adele and Skepta seem to be going strong

Back in October 2020, a source told People that the long-time friends were spending time together. "They run in the same circles in London, and she's having fun." The update came after Adele filed for divorce from her husband of seven years, Simon Konecki, in September 2019. 

But their relationship goes back further than last year. In 2016, Skepta spoke fondly of his then-friend Adele, telling the Evening Standard that the two spoke frequently. "Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check," he said. "She speaks to me about how things are going. She's one of the people I know that, from her [example] alone, you can move in a certain way where you're not inviting fame. She's the biggest artist in the world, bro, and you do not see her in the papers."

He was also asked if the two might ever collaborate but said that wasn't the goal of the friendship. "With those kind of things, I don't really know," he explained. "With Drake and Adele, I'm happy firstly that they respect me as an artist and a man."
