Adele and her husband Simon Konecki have separated.
The Rolling in the Deep singer’s representatives Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh confirmed the news in an email statement to news agencies on Friday night (19Apr19).
“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.”
The British singer, who has always been private about her relationship with Simon, gave birth to their first and only child, a son named Angelo, in 2012.
They tied the knot in secret in 2016 after five years of dating, with Adele appearing to confirm they were married when she gave a shout out to the charity entrepreneur as she won Album of the Year for 25 at the 2017 Grammys.
“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 said.
She later explicitly told fans “I’m married now” during a concert in Australia in March 2017, during her world tour.
The 30-year-old and the Life Water co-founder moved to Los Angeles in 2016, but reports have suggested they were planning to move back to their native England.
Adele likes to keep a low profile, but was seen on a date night with Simon at an Elton John gig in January and enjoying a night out at a New York City gay bar with Jennifer Lawrence in March, the same month she was spotted entering a recording studio in the Big Apple, sparking rumours she’s working on new music after taking a break from the spotlight following the conclusion of her world tour in June 2017.
