Adele and ex Simon Konecki finally reach divorce settlement

The couple’s divorce still isn’t official just yet

After being broken up for nearly two years,  Adele  and her estranged husband,   Simon Konecki , have finally reached a divorce settlement. On Friday, the former couple filed a judgement packet with the court in Los Angeles, though the document has not been entered or signed by a judge to officially dissolve their marriage.

The “Someone Like You” singer first separated from Konecki in April 2019. Adele officially filed for divorce a few months later, in September, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and requesting joint custody of their son.

While she gets very personal in her music, the English star is known for keeping her personal life fairly private, making details of her relationship with her ex very sparse.


The couple welcomed their only child together, a son named Angelo, in 2012. Though there were rumors that the two of them secretly married years prior, Adele didn’t confirm that they were husband and wife until the 2017 Grammys, with other reports saying the two didn’t tie the knot until the spring of 2018.

While the divorce being finalized proves theres no chances of reconciliation, the couple is staying on good terms for their son. In May, a source told PEOPLE that the former couple have been living across the street from each other in Los Angeles as they co-parent their 8-year-old amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“They are doing what‘s best for Angelo,” the source said. “Her son is her world.”


Adele still isn’t letting fans in on the details of her love life, but rumors have been swirling for a while now that she’s dating rapper Skepta.

A source close to the “Hello” singer confirmed the couple’s status to PEOPLE back in October, saying “things have been heating up” between the two of them for months. “They run in the same circles in London, and she‘s having fun,” they told the publication.

The British artists have been close friends for years before making things romantic, bonding over their love of music, their shared home neighborhood of Tottenham, London, and being parents to young children.

“Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check,” Skepta said in a 2016 interview with the Evening Standard. ”She speaks to me about how things are going.”
