It appears that 2019 will continue to deliver surprise after surprise.
Really? Like, really!?
The world of celebrity dating will never cease to surprise and amaze us all. It's uncertain as to why exactly we're all so interested, but perhaps it's because it promises to ultimately impact their work.
If musicians start dating, it's likely to reflect on their output, whether it's in the realm of collaborations to the inspiration behind the material. We've seen UK grime maverick Skepta talk about his love life and dating across his records, but arguably, few have been so influenced by love and loss than Adele.
The 31-year-old singer captivated the world with tracks like 'Someone Like You', 'Rolling in the Deep' and 'Hello', pretty much striking a romantic chord with us all. Well, according to The Sun, a source revealed: "Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up. They 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.”

Fans on Twitter react!
As you'd expect, this is huge news to both of the Tottenham-hailing artists' fanbases. Nobody expected to hear the news, so it's inevitably sent Twitter into meltdown.
Here are ten of our favourite reactions to the news:

Who is Adele's ex?
The popular singer married Simon Konecki back in 2016 and they had a child together.
However, they announced their separation earlier in 2019 and it looks as though Adele and Skepta could announce that they've become a couple in the near future.
The earlier source notes that they have had contact for a few years, of sorts. 37-year-old Skepta reportedly told ES Magazine in 2016: “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”
We imagine their connection must have taken off since their recent relationships ended, and under the circumstances, it's clear that they've been brought closer together in a wonderful and supportive way...

They're both parents!
It's fair to say that both like to keep their personal lives rather private, with the music doing a lot of the talking when it comes to emotional experiences.
Both are sensational artists in their own right, and they're both parents! Skepta's daughter River was born in 2018 and has even been referenced in his recent music; the song 'Greaze Mode' features the lyrics "River's dad, super swag..."
It's pretty out of the blue, but hopefully, we hear more news of the pair's situation in the near future. Hopefully there's a collaboration on the cards!
