Adele has officially filed for divorce from estranged husband Simon Konecki nearly five months after announcing their split.
The former couple announced their separation in April. “Adele and her partner have separated,” the singer’s rep told Us in a statement at the time. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
Adele gave birth to her son, Angelo, in 2012. She married Konecki – an investment banker turned charity boss – in 2016 after five years of dating.
“Their relationship evolved and they became more like friends than lovers.” The pair also “realized the romantic love was no longer there” and that they were “disappointed” that it “didn’t work out.”
The statement added that the couple, who announced their separation in April, were asking for privacy and there would be no further comment.
The divorce papers were lodged at a court in Los Angeles.
They married in a secret ceremony in 2016, with Adele publicly addressing the wedding for the first time during an acceptance speech at the 2017 Grammys, where she thanked her husband.
