Adele and Husband Simon Konecki Have Separated and “Are Committed to Raising Their Son Together”

Adele and her husband, Simon Konecki, with whom she shares her son, Angelo Adkins, are separated, her representatives confirmed in an emailed statement to the Associated Press on Friday.

“Adele and her partner have separated,” the statement said. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”

When she received the Album of the Year Award at the 2017 Grammys, Adele announced that she had gotten married to her longtime boyfriend in a very subtle speech: “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 mentioned her son, now 6, in her speech and mentioned the challenges she’s faced with being a mom: “Five years ago, when I was last here, I was so―I was pregnant, and I didn’t know. And I was awarded that shortly after, I found out shortly after, which was the biggest blessing of my life. And in my pregnancy, becoming a mother, I lost a lot of myself. I struggled and I still do struggle being a mom. It’s really hard. But tonight winning this kind of full circle.”

Adele confirmed the marriage at a March 2017 Brisbane concert by saying, “Obviously I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now. I’ve found my next person.”

Adele and Konecki have always been private, especially when it comes to raising their son. She gave birth to Angelo when she was 24, just one year after her album 21 spent 24 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. In August 2012, Adele squashed rumors that she and Konecki had gotten married with this simple tweet:
