Adele Reveals Relationship Status Amid Skepta Dating Rumors


Adele is setting the record straight!

After a source close to the 32-year-old singer told People she was in a relationship with UK rapper Skepta, Adele took to Instagram to issue a rare statement, refuting the claim.

"Had the best time on [Saturday Night Live]," she captioned a photo from her Saturday (October 24) hosting gig. "Thank you to the most wonderful cast, crew, writers and producers. What a sublime bunch of people you are. Lorne thank you for believing in me! Lindsay my sister for life, Maya my comedy and Mama hero! Plus the so up for it audiences at both the dress rehearsal and live show! I did it for the joy of it and I hope you got some from it too! Good luck with the election America I love you so much. Look after each other and go easy on yourselves. Happy Halloween!"

The "Hello" singer then addressed her relationship status, writing, "I’m going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am! Peace out til next year ♥️."

Adele's post came hours after an insider told People, "things have been heating up" between her and Skepta in recent months. "They run in the same circles in London, and she's having fun," the source claimed.

As fans know, rumors have surrounded Adele's relationship status since she filed for divorce from estranged husband Simon Konecki — who she shares a seven-year-old son, Angelo Adkins, with — in September 2019 after seven years together.

Late last month, The Sun reported that Adele is "basically in a relationship" with Skepta. A source later told the outlet, "Adele and Skepta have a close bond and there’s definitely a special connection. 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."
