Adele, 30, and husband Simon Konecki, 45, SPLIT just three years after secret wedding
Adele and her husband Simon Konecki have “separated”, a representative for the star has said today. The Hello hitmaker wed the charity entrepreneur in 2016 after five years of dating and four years after the birth of their son Angelo. The 30-year-old and her estranged spouse, 45, said they’re now concentrating on their little boy and raising him “together lovingly”. Reps Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh said in a statement: “Adele and her partner have separated.
Adele and husband Simon Konecki are committed to raising their son together lovingly
“They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
Adele and Simon married in secret, with the A-lister first publicly addressing the wedding during an acceptance speech at the Grammys 2017.
She spoke out while picking up album of the year during an emotional acceptance speech, where she referenced her young family.
The singer said at the time: “My husband, my son, you’re the only reason I do it.”
Adele later removed any doubt over her marital status a month later during a concert in Australia.
While discussing her worldwide hit Someone Like You, which is about a break-up, she said: “Obviously I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now. I’ve found my next person.”
** Who is Adele’s husband? **
Adele, who is notoriously private, reportedly started dating Simon in 2011 and they were first pictured together on holiday in Florida in January the following year.
In that June, she announced she was expecting her first child, confirming the news on her blog.
She wrote: “I’m delighted to announce that Simon and I are expecting our first child together.
“I wanted you to hear the news direct from me, obviously we’re over the moon and very excited but please respect our privacy at this precious time. Yours always, Adele xx.”
Angelo was born on October 19, 2012. Adele would later describe motherhood as “hard but phenomenal”.
She took a break from performing following the enormous success of her 2011 album 21, and her Oscar win for the James Bond theme, Skyfall.
The singer denied being a “recluse” and in December 2014 took the rare step of issuing a public statement on her private life.
She dismissed reports she had split from Simon, writing on Twitter: “Just wanted to wish everyone happy holidays & all the best for 2015!
“PS Simon & I are still very much together, don’t believe what you read x.”
The split news comes just weeks after Adele was pictured entering a recording studio in New York City, sparking rumours she was working on new music.
