Adele And Ex-Husband, Simon Konecki Finalise Divorce Nearly Two Years After Announcing Split

Published

Adele and her former husband, Simon Konecki have reportedly finalised their divorce, nearly two years after they separated.

The 32-year-old singer, whose full name is Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, and her 46-year-old philanthropist and charity entrepreneur former husband, are now “officially divorced” according to US Weekly who reported that a judge signed off the settlement on Thursday, March 4.

The Someone Like You singer and Simon first met in 2011, and welcomed their son, Angelo the following year.

There was intense speculation that they had secretly tied the knot in 2017 when they were spotted flashing wedding rings.

The star then confirmed the speculation at the Grammys by referring to Simon as her ‘husband’ during her acceptance speech.

However, their relationship ended in 2019, following a seven-year romance and the singer’s spokesperson at the time said;

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.

Following this, Adele and Simon have stayed close since the split in a bid to co-parent Angelo, and reportedly live across the street from each other in Los Angeles.

In their divorce case, the publication stated that they chose to ‘represent themselves’ and determined the rights to their community property and debts through mediation.

It was reported that mediators were forced to split the £140 million (over $193 million) fortune that the couple had amassed.

The couple had a £34.7 million property portfolio among their fortune, which had been mostly made on the back of Adele’s hugely successful career, and the carving up of their assets and money needed careful management.

They had already agreed to have joint custody of their eight-year-old son, Angelo.

A source told the publication;

They made it very clear they didn’t want to set ­lawyers on each other but the process hasn’t been exactly straightforward all the same. The priority was making sure they did right by their son, Angelo.

The first thing they agreed on was sharing custody, and since then it has been about dividing up the rest of their marital finances fairly.

The source added;

Fortunately they have ­managed to get there without an explosive public court case, slanging matches or scandalous claims about each other, and that gives them the best ­possible chance of ­staying on good terms in the future.

The former couple, who are notoriously private, were yet to speak publicly over the development.
