Find out why Adele and Simon Konecki split up after eight years together. The two also have a 6-year-old son named Angelo together.
A rep for the couple 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.”
A source told E!, “They had a lot in common early on, but eventually they just grew apart. She became a bigger and bigger star, and he was okay [with] being in the background, but as she got bigger and had massive tours and intense schedules, they just grew apart.”
The source added that the two want to “keep this amicable” because “they have Angelo together.” The deterioration of this relationship is “highly unlikely” to “get ugly.”
The couple got together in 2011 and then had their son Angelo in October 2012. The two have been extremely private about their relationship and they will probably keep the same attitude going into the dissolution of their relationship.
The insider added, “Their marriage was clearly working for a very long time. Whenever she was out at big openings and special events, he was usually with her. They looked really just happy together and in love. They were into the marriage pretty much until they decided this just isn’t working anymore.”
The news of the split came just weeks after Adele was seen heading into a recording studio without her wedding ring on.
