Adele and rumored boyfriend Skepta were seen trying out discounted Prada products together at a shopping mall in California, near Palm Spring, over the past week, reigniting speculation that they are an item. Adele, 33, was first linked to rumored boyfriend Skepta, 38, whose real name is Joseph Adenuga, last year.
The Rolling in the Deep singer went quite far to insist that she was not seeing anyone and claimed she was, in fact, single by making a public declaration about her romantic life shortly after she hosted Saturday Night Live last October. However, recently the chart topping star has been spotted out looking for bargains and mingling with fellow shoppers at a discounted designer outlet in California beside the fellow musician.
As per PageSix reports, Adele was seen at the Cabazon Outlets in the Prada store with rumored boyfriend Skepta.
An insider source told the gossip column, “She was sitting watching him while he was picking sweaters, pants, trying on jackets and coats and having the employees help him. She was giving him feedback and saying what she thought he looked great in.”
“It was cute that just waiting and being a normal girlfriend while he looked. He must have shopped for 45 minutes,” the source added. Adele even stopped to play with a puppy belonging to a fellow shopper as mentioned by the source.
Last year, in October, People reported that the relationship between Adele and rumored boyfriend Skepta was “heating up.” But she seemingly addressed her relationship status as she called herself a “single cat lady” on Instagram.
After appearing on Saturday Night Live, she wrote, “I’m going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am! Peace out until next year.”
However, Adele and rumored boyfriend Skepta are believed to have known each other for some time.
She posted a picture of the rapper in 2016 with the caption “Tottenham Boy.” The same year, Skepta shared in an interview with ES Magazine, “Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”
Adele previously tied the knot to Simon Konecki, but the pair split up in 2019 after being together for seven years. Their divorce was formalized in March. They share physical and legal custody of their 8-year-old son, Angelo.
Skepta shares a 2-year-old daughter with a prior relationship, River.
On professional front, Adele will release a new album of music at some point this year as per assumptions, after delaying the release of her fourth album last year because of the ongoing pandemic.
