It's been five months since Adele split with her husband Simon Konecki, and it's high time she made room for someone new.
Reports have been circulating that the singer is dating U.K rapper Skepta.
Radar Online reported that the Skepta (real name Joseph Junior Adenuga Jr) has been in touch with Adele since her relationship with Simon ended.

The Grammy-winner even joined him in celebrating his 37th birthday at the Crystal Maze Experience in London last month.
According to the publication, fans have theorised that the two met through their mutual friend Stormzy.
"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,” a source told The Sun.
The insider revealed that their friendship between the two Tottenham-natives could blossom into romance at any moment.
“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,” said the source.
In an interview with ES Magazine in 2016, Skepta opened up about their closeness.
“Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going.”
The Hello singer posted a photo of the 37-year-old on social media that same year, with the caption “Tottenham Boy” and a red heart emoji.
Skepta then retweeted the post and wrote “love you” and a red rose emoji.
“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,” he later told IB Times UK in 2016.
“I was actually going to quit music that day, that was one of the sickest things ever. She’s like the lady of Tottenham.”
Adele filed for divorce from Simon (with whom she shares 6-year-old son Angelo) in September.
Sources claimed the 45-year old sent secret messages to his ex-wife while married to Adele.
While Skepta also has a child from another relationship, has never been married.
The Grime star was previously linked with supermodel Naomi Campbell early last year.
“They are both private about their love lives and they are both committed to their children first and foremost as well,” a source told Radar.
When asked if the two were an item, spokesman for the Someone Like You singer told reporters: “No reply at this time.”
Similarly, a representative for Skepta did not respond to The Sun’s requests for comment.
