Five months after Adele and her husband Simon Konecki split, the singer has officially called it quits as she filed for divorce on Thursday. The couple, who share a 6-year-old son Angelo, had announced a joint statement in April that they had split following seven years together. According to TMZ, Adele filed for divorce from her estranged husband on Thursday in Los Angeles. With the singer now filing for divorce, the custody of their son remains to be decided as well as their finances

Back in April, Adele had given rise to speculations about their split after she was spotted without her ring. Amidst all the buzz, Adele’s representative confirmed the news to Associated Press and said, “Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.” 

People stated that Adele and Konecki are believed to have not signed a prenup when they wed in 2011, as per numerous UK reports. And since the 31-year-old singer chose to file for divorce in the state of California — where they own property and Konecki’s business has a base of operations — he could be entitled to as much as half of the singer’s earnings.

The details of their relationship and marriage were barely revealed as Adele always mentioned that she won’t be with someone from the industry due to big egos. Back in 2012, they welcomed their son and named him Angelo. Adele, in December 2016, bought a home in Beverly Hills and has been juggling her life between London and the USA. In a Vanity Fair interview earlier, Adele was all praise for Simon and mentioned that her relationship works with him because he isn’t threatened by any of her work.
