Adele & Simon Konecki To Share Custody Of Son, Ex Won’t Receive Alimony
The Grammy winner married Konecki on May 4, 2018, although they were together for several years before tying the knot and welcomed their son in 2012. The pair announced their separation in August 2019 and Adele filed for divorce a month later for reasons of “irreconcilable differences.”
“Adele and her partner have separated,” her rep told Today at the time. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
According to court documents, the pair used mediation to come to an agreement over the custody of their son Angelo.
The “Rolling in the Deep” singer has always been extremely private about her personal life. Fans were not even aware that she had gotten married until she thanked her “husband” in a Grammy acceptance speech.
In 2015, Adele opened up to TODAY about her much of a priority her son is. “My son comes everywhere with me, he’s the first person I see in the morning and the last person I see at night,” she said at the time. “My kid comes first and my music comes second. And I come second.”
Konecki is the co-founder of Life Water, a U.K. eco-friendly bottled water brand. He also runs Drop4Drop, an organization that helps countries in need of clean drinking water.
