Emeli Sande dating rapper Hypo

Emeli Sandé is dating British rapper and producer Hypo.

The 29-year-old musician - who split from husband Adam Gouraguine in 2013 after one year of marriage - reportedly started dating Hypo, also known as Bigg Hypes, earlier this year and couldn't be happier.

A source told The Sun: "Emeli was in a bad place when she split from Adam but time is a healer and she really likes Hypo.

"They started dating earlier this year after being introduced by mutual friends. It's only her second relationship so she's been cautious.

"But Emeli has really clicked with him and they even travelled to Jamaica together in March. Things have flourished between them."

And Emeli's upcoming album has been delayed because she has been working on new music inspired by her relationship with the rapper.

When asked by fans on Instagram when the new record will be released, she said: "This year!! Sorry it's taken so long...wanted it to be worth the wait x (sic)."

Although they initially kept their romance private, the pair have recently started to post pictures of each other on social media.

Last week Emeli shared a picture of them smiling together and wrote: "Sunshine through my window (sic)."

Emeli previously admitted she came close to a breakdown following her split from Adam, who she started dating when she was just 17.

She said: "Everyone thought I'd gone mad. 'What do you mean a divorce? We were all at your wedding a few months ago!' But there was just something inside me that said, "This isn't the life. You're pretending to be someone else.

"I don't want to call it a breakdown, but it felt like that."
