He arrived in huge, blacked-out cars, with plenty of muscle surrounding him. » Huh! According to Page Six, there’s nothing romantic at play; Brown reportedly made the visit along with rumored girlfriend Gina Huynh. Meanwhile, Adele is rumored to be dating rapper Skepta, who Brown is friends with. « Adele and Skepta have a close bond and there’s definitely a special connection. They’re spending more and more time together, » a source said in 2019.
According to Cosmopolitan, Brown was also in the U.K. to see his son Aeko, whom he shares with ex Ammika Harris.
