The singer was linked to rapper Skepta

Adele parted ways from Simon in April last year after a seven-year relationship. It's been reported that the pair filed for divorce in September 2019. The former couple are parents to their eight-year-old son Angelo.

The Hello hitmaker was first linked to Skepta in September last year. The rapper has previously gushed about his friendship with Adele, telling ES Magazine in 2016: "Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going." Later that year, Adele shared a picture of Skepta, writing, "Tottenham Boy" alongside a heart emoji.
