Singer Adele splits from husband Simon Konecki
Adele, Grammy-winning singer, and Simon Konecki, her husband, have separated after 7 years together, representatives for the singer have confirmed.
“Adele and her partner have separated,” Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh, her representatives, wrote Friday, April 19, 2019.
“They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
The gifted singer got married to Konecki — an investment banker turned charity boss — in 2016 after five years of dating and in 2012, she gave birth to Angelo.
She is largely quiet on her private life and her relationship with Konecki.
Adele didn’t confirm their union until 2017 when she referred to herself as a “married” woman during her Grammy acceptance speech for album of the year.
“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 had said while accepting her Grammy in 2017.
Konecki is known as a former Lehman Brothers employee who left in 2005 and founded eco-friendly water company Life Water.
He also runs Drop4Drop, which provides clean water to countries in need.
Meanwhile, the songstress is speculated to be working on a follow up to third studio album 25.
