Adele Files For Divorce
Adele files for divorce from her husband, Simon Konecki, following their separation in April. The multi-award-winning songstress filed it in California, where she and Konecki have had a home since 2016, the year they married.
When separating, a statement read that the pair are “committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always, they ask for privacy.” Their child, Angelo, was born in 2012.
The British singer has not directly commented on the split since. However, Adele made reference to it in an Instagram post where she posted a meme of herself. The post featured a tearful picture alongside a triumphant pose. The caption read: “When you catch yourself in your feelings then you remember who you are.”
In another post for her 31st birthday, Adele wrote: “30 tried me so hard, but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean into it all.”

I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once.
Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually 😂 Bunch of fucking savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you. Chin up eh ❤️
That post suggested that Adele’s new album would be called “30”, following the albums “19”, “21”, and “25”.
The latter, released in 2015, became the fastest-selling album of all time in the UK. It was also the highest-selling album in the world that year.
The excitement over her marriage breakdown is ugly and unkind. As Adele files for divorce, fans have taken to social media to express their anticipation for a new Adele album chock full of breakup anthems. A lot of fans would pay no regard or consideration for the person behind the voice.
If you’re tempted to type out “tHe nEw mUsIc wILl sLaP sO hArD”, don’t. Don’t be that person.
Whether or not there is a “30” album, we wish Adele all the love and encouragement to get through this hard time.
