Adele has separated from Simon Konecki, her husband of eight years. This news was announced last Friday, April 19 by representatives from Adele’s camp.

“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,” they announced.

The 30-year-old Tottenham singer and Simon got married secretly in 2016, a union that was announced during one of her concerts and when she addressed him as her husband during her acceptance speech at the Grammys.

Konecki is co-founder of Life water and its charity arm Drop4drop which promotes global access to clean water.
