Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, or better known as just Adele, has split from her husband, Simon Konecki, after being together for more than 7 years.
The 31-year-old British songstress and her 45-year-old entrepreneur-philanthropist beau confirmed their separation via the Associated Press (from representative Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh).
The statement reads:
“Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
The Grammy winner first met Konecki in 2011 and supposedly tied the knot sometime in 2017. Although Konecki has a daughter from a previous marriage, he and Adele plan to co-parent their son, Angelo James, together moving forward.
Adele has previously confessed that she has “no desire to be with anyone in show business because we all have egos”. The recent breakup may have inspired her to churn out some new songs as she was spotted heading into a recording studio alone in New York City – sans her wedding ring.
