British songstress Adele has announced her split from her husband Simon Konecki after seven years together.

Adele has announced her split from husband Simon Konecki after three years of marriage and seven years together. The British superstar confirmed the shock separation in a statement last week and seems determined to shield her family, particularly her young son Angelo, from further scrutiny.

Familiar With Heartbreak

The couple has been extremely private, rarely appearing together in public, so their sudden split has come as a shock to many. In the statement, Adele’s representatives indicated that the singer will be navigating the end of her marriage away from the public eye.

“Adele and her partner have separated,” the statement read. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always, they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”



Adele is no stranger to heartbreak, with her hit album 21 recounting the tumultuous end of a previous relationship. Smash hits such as Someone Like You and Rolling In The Deep became break up anthems for millions around the world. Her recent album 25 had a much more upbeat tone, no doubt as a result of her marriage and the birth of her son.

Whether recent events will inspire another album only time will tell, but we hope that Adele and her family are given the space to get through this difficult time.

Did you experience a marriage breakdown while your children were still young? Share your story in the comments.

  • My ex-husband and I split when my kids were young which I found better than them being older. I was 9 when my parents split and I was throwing tantrums etc. My mother soon brought another man to live with us so that didn’t help. It’s better to split then to have an unhealthy relationship or any toxicity in the house.


  • That’s so sad


  • Yes I did and it is going to be a hard time for her. I wish her well moving forwards.


  • So sad. I wish her all the best and hope they can work through this as a family out of the public eye and scrutiny.


  • We’ve been married 22 years and counting. So many of my kids friends though are from broken families. It can give so much instability if both parents don’t put the child at the forefront.


  • I was lucky never to have a marriage breakdown. We were together for 48 years and married for 42 of those years. We only parted ways when he passed away last year. It’s bad enough for people who divorce but, to me, it would be worse if it was in the limelight. I wish Adele, Simon and Angelo are given the privacy they deserve in this difficult time.


  • How awful for her, and to have to deal with it in such a public way


  • Sad to hear.


  • A shame it didn’t work out


  • How sad but good that she has been able to keep it somewhat private.


  • So hard with careers and young children. Hope they can work together for their childs sake


  • Awww it’s always a shame to see breakups!


  • oh that is sad news, I hope that the media and fans will respect their wishes and stay out of their business. Wishing them all the best during this sad time.

    • I hope so too! – respect is needed at such a difficult time.


  • So terrible when you hear about a split, in particular when there are kids involved. :-(


  • Marriage’s break up and hers is public because of her status.
