Rumour has it Adele’s new ‘boyfriend’ is US hip hop producer Jonathan Hay

Move over Skepta, could Adele have found another hitmaker to make sweet music with?

Friends tell me they think the 15x Grammy winner has been spending quality time with famed American hip-hop producer Jonathan Hay.

It is thought the pair randomly met this year at Quad Recording ­Studios in New York.

Jonathan was busy recording his No1 jazz album, Follow the Leader, with Mike Smith and Benny Reid. Adele, 31, had been working on new music at Quad following her shock split from husband Simon Konecki.

Jonathan, 45, later gushed about meeting “the love of his life” – with “a heavy British accent” at the studios. Sound familiar?

In the online interview, he said: “I unexpectedly met the love of my life when I got off the elevator at the legendary Quad Studios – the same elevator that Tupac Shakur was shot in.

“It was an immediate and galvanising connection with her right in the heart of Times Square.

“With a heavy British accent I was hanging on her every word and drawn into her every movement. I’ve been relentlessly courting her since.

“It’s been magic. We also signed a record deal with Fat Beats [Billie Elish, Mary J Blige] and a major licensing agreement for our music. None of this happens if I didn’t meet and fall in love with this girl from London.”

Fans are also convinced the girl in question is Adele with one saying: “Please! OBVIOUSLY Adele.”

When asked for comment, ­Jonathan told me: “Thanks for reaching out. I really can’t comment at the moment.”

And Adele’s reps did not respond either.

Producer Jonathan also worked with Rihanna on her debut Pon de Replay and he has a 17-year-old daughter, Iliana Eve, who is also a singer.

The star, from Florida, once said he fancied a Stateside switch to work with ­Britain’s top talent.

“I want to move to London and work with Adele, it’s kind of where my head’s at,” he said. And maybe his heart too?
