Naomi Campbell and Skepta confirmed their romance at the NME Awards on Wednesday, February 14, 2018.
The 47-year-old supermodel was rumoured to be dating the 35-year-old musician last month, and they reportedly couldn’t hide their affection for one another at Brixton’s O2 Academy in London earlier this week.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ”They only had eyes for each other. They were sat next to each other and were constantly whispering into each other’s ears.
”There is an obvious spark.”
And after the ceremony was over, the pair headed separately to Liam Gallagher’s afterparty at The Ivy, and though they departed the venue solo, they were seen leaving in the same car just a few minutes later.
According to The Sun newspaper, Naomi spent 11 minutes at the bash, while Skepta – whose real name is Joseph Adenuga – was inside the venue for just one minute.
The couple also appeared to pay coded tributes to one another while on stage at the music awards ceremony.
Accepting Boy Better Know’s NME Innovation Award, Skepta pointed over to Naomi’s table and said: ”Thanks, thanks, to all the women, all the ladies that have been holding us down. For managers to girlfriends and all that stuff.
”Thanks to all the ladies. Girl better know.”
Meanwhile, Naomi presented the Best Album award to J Hus, but name-checked her new beau saying: ”I’m so proud to be part of the collective group of musicians here tonight, to see Skepta with Liam Gallagher.”
On Thursday (15.02.18), the ‘Shutdown’ hitmaker shared a photo of Naomi on stage at the ceremony, and simply captioned it with two heart emojis.
It was previously claimed the couple had been enjoying a number of ”secret” dates.
A source said last month: ”Naomi and Skepta have been meeting up for a string of secret dates. They are both very creative which is why they have hit it off with each other. Things are going well but they are taking it very slowly.”
