Adele spent £16,000 on a gold chain for her new ‘love interest’ Skepta’s birthday present, it has been reported. 

The singer, 32, has been on nights out with the rapper and is said to have splashed out on the jewellery to mark him turning 38. 

Friends of the couple told The Mirror that while the music stars aren’t in an official relationship yet, things are heading in that direction.

The insider said: ‘Adele and Skepta have grown close in recent months and have been seeing a lot of each other.

‘She’s been in England, and she gave him a beautiful gold chain for his birthday.

‘He was showing friends the chain and seemed pretty hyped about it. While they’re not officially in a relationship, they are very close.’

Representatives for Adele and Skepta have been contacted for a comment by MailOnline.

Last year, Adele split from her husband Simon Konecki after eight years together. They share a son Angelo.  

It comes after the pair enjoyed a fun-filled night on the town, at a virtual reality centre in east London last Tuesday. 

Having returned to the capital from her £7.7m Beverly Hills home, Adele was said to be putting on such a raucous display with the Boy Better Know star, at the futuristic venue. 

The ‘couple’, who were joined by MC Jammer, were spotted at OTHERWORLD, an ‘innovative social entertainment concept using unique, multi-sensory virtual reality technology’, which is held in a converted railway arch in a backstreet in Haggerston.

Insiders told MailOnline: ‘We were asked to move from the lounge because a VIP was arriving. I couldn’t believe it when Adele just walked in with Skepta and Jammer… 

‘After doing the VR I saw her chatting to people and putting her boots back on. She seemed really down to earth. They were screaming and laughing when they were doing the VR together, I could hear her from the other end of the venue…

‘It looked like they had a lot of fun together.’

The venue charges from £12 for a 40 minute session, up to £44 for an hour and 10 minute session per person, while drinks range from £2.00 for half a pint of Stiegl Radler to a bottle of champagne – the brand of which is unlisted – for £135.00. 

The Hello hitmaker and rapper were first linked to in October last year after it had emerged that Adele’s marriage to Simon Konecki had broken down. 

Rumours swirled in March that Skepta, real name Joseph Junior Adenuga, confirmed that things are now over between himself and Adele in a new track, Mic Check, from his album, Insomnia.

In the track, he rapped: ‘Can you handle the fame? You know you’re f***ing with a star? When you’re f***ing with me, they talk about you in the Press.’

As well as being linked with Adele, Skepta has been reportedly dating supermodel Naomi Campbell, 49, for a few months up until April 2018.
