Yes, love is dead. Adele has separated from her husband, entrepreneur Simon Konecki, just 2 years after confirming their marriage.
Adele’s representatives first confirmed the news Friday in a statement to The Associated Press. “Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy,” the statement said.
The English singer, known for heart-wrenching ballads such as “Someone Like You” and “Rolling in the Deep,” had been in a long-term relationship with Konecki, a former financier who founded drop4drop, a charity that presses for global access to clean drinking water.
The news of this split will most likely help fuel the material for her next album because there should be a lot of emotions to work with now.
Adele released her last album, 25, back in November of 2015. The massively successful album sold 2.3 million copies in just three days and debuted in the No. 1 spot in 32 countries. 25 went on to sell 3.38 million copies in its debut week and sold a total of 17.4 million copies in 2015.[irp posts=9381]
The couple tied the knot just after Christmas at their $10 million LA mansion, in front of close family and friends including Robbie Williams.
Surprise! Adele is Married!
They managed to keep their marriage a secret until the following year, when Adele thanked her “husband” in her 2017 Grammy’s acceptance speech.
She confirmed their marriage at a concert in Brisbane, Australia in 2017 as she introduced “Someone Like You,” her breakthrough 2011 hit written about the lingering pain of a breakup with a previous boyfriend.
“That feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth,” she said, according to a fan’s video posted online.
“And I am addicted to that feeling. Obviously, I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now,” she added, to a smattering of cheers.
