Adele has reportedly ‘divorced’ her estranged husband Simon Konecki after it was claimed the pair had been ‘living separate lives for years’.
The Someone Like You hitmaker, 30, confirmed she had separated from her husband of three years, 45, in an official statement released earlier this month. Reports surrounding the breakdown of Adele’s marriage come amid claims she was spotted kissing a ‘Simon Konecki lookalike’ in New York following her split.
A source told the Daily Star that the mother-of-one has reportedly told those close to her: ‘I’m divorced now, so I’m trying to find my new normal.’ They added: ‘Publicly, Adele is saying as little as possible about the split. But, privately, she’s been very open about the fact that her and Simon have already divorced.
‘She’s been telling friends that the marriage is done and dusted.’ MM has contacted Adele’s representative for comment. The reports come amid claims Adele has been on a series of dates with a lookalike of her ex during her time in New York City, according to The Sun.
A source told the publication: ‘Adele is a strong woman and is determined to get on with her life, like any normal person who is getting over a marriage break-up.
‘She has developed a real soft spot for American guys since living in LA and had a kiss with a very handsome gentleman in a New York bar. He had a big beard like Simon, but it was tidier and more groomed.
‘They’re getting to know each other better but Adele is by no means looking for anything serious.’
The insider added that the award-winning singer is focused on raising her son Angelo, six, who she shares with ex Simon. MM has contacted Adele’s representatives for comment.
The bold claims come after it was reported that Adele and Simon had been ‘living separate lives for years’ after news of their shock split emerged. The singer and her ex confirmed their separation last week after an eight-year relationship and three-year marriage.
And now it has been reported that Adele and Simon had been ‘living separate lives for years’ and ‘accepted that something just isn’t going to work’, according to The Sun.
MM contacted Adele’s representatives for comment at the time. Adele, who met the charity entrepreneur in 2011 and married him in secret in 2016, said the pair were committed to raising their son Angelo together ‘lovingly’.
The singer’s representatives said: ‘Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy.’
Her spokespeople added that the star would be making no further comment on the matter. Adele and Simon tied the knot sometime in 2016, though they managed to keep the secret wedding under wraps until the following year.
The singer confirmed the union on-stage as she picked up a Best Album Award at the 2017 Grammys. During an emotional acceptance speech, she said: ‘I’m married! My husband, my son, you’re the only reason I do it.’
