Adele files for divorce from husband Simon Konecki five months after separating – The Sun

ADELE has filed for divorce from her husband Simon Konecki, according to legal documents.

The award-winning singer, 31, announced in April that she and charity entrepreneur Konecki were separating after three years of marriage.

Court documents lodged in Los Angeles on Thursday reveal Adele has now filed for divorce.

Speaking after their separation was confirmed earlier this year, a rep for Adele said: "They are committed to raising their son together lovingly."

The statement came after reports claimed the pair were living separate lives.

A source told The Sun: “This is a very sad situation – Adele and Simon had been living separate lives for some time.

“It was well known amongst their friends that this time they simply were not going to sort it out.

“They had been trying for years but eventually you have to accept that something just isn’t going to work.”

Adele and Konecki began dating in 2011 and welcomed their son, Angelo, in 2012.

They tied the knot in a secret 2016 ceremony, with Adele publicly addressing the wedding for the first time during an acceptance speech at the 2017 Grammys.

Adele is one of the most successful artists of the last two decades – topping the charts all over the world and amassing a fortune of over £140 million.

Tottenham-born Adele released her debut album, 19, in 2008, which contained the songs Chasing Pavements and Hometown Glory and reached number one in the UK.

Her eagerly anticipated follow-up, 2011's 21, brought even more success thanks to the singles Someone Like You, Rolling In The Deep and Rumour Has It.

The record topped the charts in 30 countries, including the US and UK, and cemented Adele's status as one of the world's best-loved artists.

Adele released her most recent album, 25, in 2015, which contained the single Hello. It proved to be another critical and commercial success.
