Court documents lodged in Los Angeles on Thursday reveal Adele has now filed for divorce. And since the 31-year-old singer chose to file for divorce in the state of California - where they own property and Konecki's business has a base of operations - he could be entitled to as much as half of the singer's earnings. A representative for the Grammy victor had confirmed in a statement to an American news-based TV channel.
A representative said the pair were "committed to raising their son together lovingly". As always they ask for privacy.
Adele and Simon started dating in summer 2011 and she gave birth to their son Angelo in October 2012.
Adele hasn't publicly commented since her divorce was announced, but she did post a meme earlier in the year that read, "When you catch yourself in your feelings then you remember who you are". She also referred to Konecki as her husband while accepting a Grammy in 2017.
She said: "My knowledge of postpartum - or post-natal, as we call it in England - is that you don't want to be with your child; you're anxious you might hurt your child; you're anxious you weren't doing a good job".
She went on to win a string of awards and her follow-up, 21, topped the charts in 30 countries including the USA and the UK.
