Adele and her husband, Simon Konecki, have separated after more than 7 years together, the pop singer’s representatives confirmed on Friday.
Konecki, 45, is the CEO of a charity known as Drop4Drop while Adele is, of course, a Grammy, Academy and Golden Globe-award winning singer-songwriter.
With sales of more than 100 million records, the 30-year-old is one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
“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 last time we saw Adele and Simon together in public was back in January when they were photographed arriving backstage at an Elton John concert at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
Adele and Simon have mostly kept their relationship under wraps since they started dating back in the summer of 2011. She gave birth to their only son, Angelo, in October 2012. Adele and Simon eventually tied the knot in a super-secret wedding ceremony, but she didn’t confirm their union until 2017.
Some of Adele’s hits were quick to become break-up anthems.
She says she wrote her hit-album 21 over a three-month period at the start of 2010 after a relationship had ended, but didn’t reveal who the relationship was with.
