AceShowbiz - Is Adele and Skepta's relationship already over after only six months together? The British rapper recently released his new album with Chip and Young Adz titled "Insomnia" and one of the songs off the record sparked the split rumors.
In the song "Mic Check", the 37-year-old emcee seemingly references his rumored romance with Adele as he suggests that it's hard to handle the fame when someone is dating "a star." The lyrics in question read, "Gave her the sex, she said she feel it in her chest/ Can you handle the fame? You know you're f**king with a star/ When you're f**king with me, they talk about you in the press/ Took a little time just to get it together/ Better late than never."
He further hints that their relationship has gone through a rough patch as he raps, "Matching Alyx hoodies for the rainy weather/ Lost count how many times I broke your heart/ I'm tryna make it better, you know." In another part, he claims that his girlfriend wore sexy underwear for him during a video call."How can I fall asleep when I'm on this FaceTime with Nao... shh. She got them Victoria Secrets that she's tryna show me," he spits his bar.
Neither Adele nor Skepta has addressed their romance rumors, let alone the split speculation. The two were first rumored romantically involved in late September following her split from her husband of five years, Simon Konecki, with whom she shares a seven-year-old son, Angelo.
According to The Sun at the time, the "Set Fire to the Rain" songstress and the grime artist have been in regular contact since her split from Simon and they have also gone on a number of dates. Prior to the dating news, Adele was spotted celebrating the rapper's birthday during a night out at the Crystal Maze experience in London.
"Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up," a source told the news outlet. "They have a close bond and there's definitely a special connection." The source added, "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."
As for whether or not Adele and Skepta would go public with their relationship, the insider suggested that the chances were small, given that both of them are "private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well."
