Adele’s relationship with grime star Skepta is said to be getting serious with rumours that she’s now introduced him to her friends.
Last month it was reported that the Hello! singer was dating fellow Tottenham native Skepta following her split from husband Simon Konecki.
After the two musicians are alleged to have enjoyed ‘a string of dates’, Adele is now said to have let Skepta meet her showbiz pals, including James Corden and writer Laura Dockrill.
It’s claimed Adele, 31, brought Corden and Dockrill along when she went to Skepta’s 37th birthday party at the Crystal Maze Experience in London last month.
A source told The Sun: “No one saw it coming but there’s a whirlwind romance going on between Adele and Skepta.
“It’s been a bit of a brief fling so far. But these are two people who very much care about each other very much as friends so it’s very exciting times
“The fact Skepta has met Laura and James seems like a positive sign. Everyone wants the best for them both.”
Adele and Skepta have spoken fondly of each other in the press in the past and made their mutual appreciation clear on social media.
Speaking to ES Magazine in 2016, Skepta said: “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”
The same year Adele shared a picture of Skepta – real name Joseph Junior Adenuga Jr – to her official Instagram account.
“Tottenham Boy,” she wrote, followed by a heart emoji.
Skepta reshared the message and wrote “love you” with a red rose emoji.
Recalling the incident to IBTimes UK, Skepta later said: “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.”
In April this year it was reported Adele had split from Simon Konecki, with whom she shares a son.
She has since filed for divorce.
