After three years of marriage, Adele and Simon Konecki decided in 2019 to end their relationship. The news came as a shock to his fans at the time. Now, after two years of separation, the two have officially finalized their divorce. Scroll down to find out more.
The 31-year-old singer and Simon started dating in 2011 and welcomed their son Angelo the following year. The two even got married in a secret ceremony in 2016. The “Rolling In The Deep” singer addressed the wedding for the first time during a acceptance speech at the 2017 Grammys. However, their marriage didn’t last as long as the two filed for divorce in April 2019.
As reported by Us Weekly, a judge on Thursday approved their divorce, making it official and ending Adele and Simon Konecki’s two-year separation journey. The two are said to have represented themselves in the case.
Adele and Simon Konecki also chose to “determine community property rights and debts through mediation”. Previously, reports suggested the British singer was forced to resort to mediators to split her $ 190 million fortune during legal proceedings.
Singer Hello and CEO of the charity will also share custody of their 8-year-old son. A source revealed to The Sun that while they agreed to joint custody, they were also firm on not involving the lawyers in the process. The source told the publication, “They made it very clear that they did not want to put the lawyers on top of each other, but the process was not straightforward all the same. The priority was to make sure they were doing right through their son, Angelo. The first thing they agreed on was sharing custody, and since then it’s been about dividing up the rest of their marital finances fairly.
In the midst of her divorce proceedings, Adele surprised her fans and her follower with her dramatic weight loss.
