The 32-year-old pop music superstar seemingly put the kibosh on rumors she had a new man in her life after reports on Wednesday claimed "things have been heating up" between Adele and British rapper Skepta, 38.

Adele is setting the record straight about her relationship status. "Thank you to the most wonderful cast, crew, writers and producers", she wrote, referencing her recent host gig on "Saturday Night Live".

"I'm going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am!"

Those circles include the likes of Drake, who often taps Skepta - real name Joseph Junior Adenuge - for collaborations due to the rapper's unique Tottenham-sourced grime style.

"What a sublime bunch of people you are. Peace out til next year", she added.

Following her unforgettable Saturday Night Live monologue, the "Hello" singer took to Instagram on October 28 to clear up those Skepta rumors. "Lorne [Michaels] thank you for believing in me!"

"My album's not finished, and I'm too scared to do both". Look after each other and go easy on yourselves.

The two sparked off relationship rumours back in 2019 after they were spotted hanging out together.

Adele, 32, and Skepta, 38, made headlines a year ago when she helped celebrate his 37th birthday. "She speaks to me about how things are going. She's the biggest artist in the world, bro, and you do not see her in the papers [every day]".

Rapper Skepta comes from the same North London neighbourhood as Adele.

Angelo's momma filed for divorce from her husband Simon Konecki in 2019, and has since highlighted her slimmer physique both at outings and on the 'gram - so we think her self-imposed "cat lady" title might be a bit of a stretch, too!

Earlier in the year, Adele made headlines for her new look, and she also commented on her new appearance during the show.
