Adele filed for divorce yesterday.
That had been fully expected. Adele confirmed in April that she and husband Simon Konecki had separated. Her rep said they would continue to (quote) “raise their seven-year-old son together lovingly.”
They started dating in 2011 then secretly married nearly three years ago. For the most part, Simon stayed in the background. A source told E! News, (quote) “As Adele got bigger and had massive tours and intense schedules, they grew apart.”
