Music superstar Adele has split with husband Simon Konecki after seven years of marriage.
“Adele and her partner have separated,” the singer’s representative Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh said in a statement to the press.
“They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
The 30-year-old ‘Rolling in the deep’ singer and entrepreneur-philanthropist Konecki, 44, have long kept the details of their romance under wraps. According to PEOPLE magazine: “The reason her relationship works with Simon is because they are on the same page,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “Their priority is their son, and Adele loves being a mother. Angelo is a very happy little boy.”
Adele has remained tight-lipped about her private life for most of her time spent in the spotlight. Adele Adkins only disclosed the nature of her relationship, although sneakily, in a blog post in 2012. It was then in June 2012 that Adele revealed she and Konecki were expecting a baby, and the pair welcomed their son Angelo in October of 2012.
The singer went on to hint that she may have gotten married to Konecki in 2017 at the Grammys as she accepted the ‘Album of the Year’ for her smash hit album 25: “Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son — you’re the only reason I do it.”
In an 2016 interview with Vanity Fair, Adele said – “I have no desire to be with anyone in show business because we all have egos,” she told VF. “He’s not threatened by any stage of my life that I’m going for, and that’s an amazing thing.”
According to PEOPLE magazine – In March 2019, the singer and pal Jennifer Lawrence were spotted partying at the New York City gay bar Pieces. The same week, Adele was photographed outside an N.Y.C. recording studio sans her wedding ring. And in April, she reportedly spent time with friend Taylor Swift.
The Associated Press were the first to report news of the split.
