Adele has filed for divorce from her husband Simon Konecki five months after they separated. The Hello singer, 31, announced in April that she and charity entrepreneur Simon had split after three years of marriage. And she has now officially called time on their marriage by lodging divorce papers at a court in Los Angeles on Thursday. Adele and Konecki began dating in 2011 and welcomed their son, Angelo, in 2012. They tied the knot in a secret 2016 ceremony, with Adele publicly addressing the wedding for the first time during an acceptance speech at the 2017 Grammys.
After she collected the Album of the Year gong, the Someone Like You singer said: ‘Grammys, I appreciate it. The Academy, I love you. My manager, my husband and my son you’re the only reason I do it.’ Speaking after their separation was confirmed Adele’s rep said the exes were dedicated on ‘raising Angelo lovingly’. ‘They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment,’ her spokesperson said. The divorce news comes after sources claimed the Make You Feel My Love is feeling ‘perky as hell’ after a ‘difficult year’. Some questionable wording there, but we’ll take it.
She is definitely getting ready both mentally and physically to promote new music. It seems it will happen later this year,’ a source told People in September. ‘She talks about last year as a very difficult year, and she’s said in the past that creating new music is almost like therapy. You can tell that she is ready to share with her fans.’ Tottenham-born Adele has been pretty much the reigning queen of the music world since releasing her debut album, 19, in 2008.
Her eagerly anticipated follow-up, 2011’s 21, brought even more success thanks to the singles Someone Like You, Rolling In The Deep and Rumour Has It. Adele released her most recent album, 25, in 2015, which contained the single Hello and goddamit now it’s in our heads again.
