Multi-award winning singer Adele recently made public her split from husband, Simon Konecki. The couple has been together for 7 years, having made their relationship known in 2012. Their son, Angelo, was born that same year. They then married sometime in 2017.
Adele’s representatives, Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh, released the following statement to The Associated Press announcing the separation:
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 couple has always been very private about their relationship, having only made their marriage known in short references. In fact, their marriage was mostly announced to the world during Adele’s grammy-acceptance speech in 2017. She 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.”

She also only briefly confirmed her relationship with Simon when announcing her pregnancy back in 2012. She had written on her website called I’ve Got Some News: “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.” Prior to that, only minimal rumors had floated around about the two spending time together.
Perhaps the most that Adele has ever said about her relationship was in an interview with 60 minutes. She’s recorded as sharing: “Being in such an amazing relationship with someone that’s so there for me and so loyal and is really part of my core now. That’s what made me write about everything I’ve ever done because I’ve got his love.” Which only makes the whole ordeal even sadder.
Most likely, this statement from her representatives is the only information we will be getting regarding the split due to the couple’s private nature — and that is entirely their right. Fans will just have to satisfy themselves with overanalyzing every song in her eventual next album.
