Adele split with her husband after more than 7 years together
Pop singer Adele and her husband Simon Konecki finally split after more than seven years of love together.
“Adele and her partner have separated,” the singer’s representative Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh said in a statement to the Associated 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 singer (born Adele Adkins) and entrepreneur-philanthropist Konecki, 44, have long kept the details of their romance under wraps.
The “Hello” singer first addressed their relationship in a blog post in January 2012, the same month they were spotted on an airboat ride in the Everglades. In June 2012, Adele revealed she and Konecki were expecting a baby, and the pair welcomed their son Angelo on Oct. 19, 2012.
https://people.com/music/adele-simon-konecki-split/ “The reason her relationship works with Simon is because they are on the same page,” a source told PEOPLE Magazine at the time. “Their priority is their son, and Adele loves being a mother. Angelo is a very happy little boy.”
In December 2016, Adele opened up about her bond with the “confident” and “perfect” Konecki for one of the first times, calling it “the most serious relationship I’ve ever been in.”
“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.”
