As for his relationship with Adele, sources close to them said..
Adele likes to keep part of her life back for herself, but it’s an open secret that Slinky was the guy who inspired ‘21. He’s a seriously good-looking guy. He has a great body and likes to wear vests to show it off. And he has this crazy hair which reminds me of Jimi Hendrix — it’s really wild and untamed.
“It’s easy to see what attracted Adele to him. He’s a really popular guy, the life and soul of the party, and he’s a musician as well. But while Adele has the knack for writing songs which the whole world can tap into, Slinky’s material is more underground and kind of art-school trendy.”
“Slinky isn’t the kind of guy you can tie down,” the friend says. “It was always going to end in tears, and those tears were always going to be Adele’s. They never lived together, and I can’t really recall Slinky ever describing Adele as his girlfriend,”
Slinky and Adele met in the early months of 2008 in February to be exact, thru mutual friends, they began dating not long after, Last September it was revealed Adele rekindled her friendship with her ex-boyfriend who today we know is Slinky Winfield, a few month before she said she would do anything to have him back into her life.
Just to make something clear here, apparently Adele’s ex-boyfriend who dumped her and wanted royalties from her songs is not Slinky, but her first serious boyfriend, I think that would be Chris ‘Boomer’ McCann.
