Over these past few years, Adele and Simon have showcased their love and admiration for each other on multiple occasions and now that it’s over, it is hard for us to continue believing in true love.

Even though they are going their separate ways, that doesn’t stop us from taking a look back at their early years together as a happy couple.

Adele and Simon met in 2011

Over the years, Adele has been adamant on keeping her private life out of the spotlight, and her relationship with Simon Konecki was no different.

The soulful songstress first met Konecki back in 2011 and though it is unclear how they first came in contact, Adele did reveal that she was, in fact, dating him in a now-deleted post on her blog around Jan. 2012.

The former couple was first spotted together in Boca Raton, Florida (where many of Konecki’s relatives live) on an airboat ride through the Everglades.

In 2012, fans finally got a glimpse of Konecki and Adele together after he accompanied her to the 2012 Grammy Awards and the tow of them just looked completely smitten with each other.

Later that year, Adele announced on her blog that she and Simon Konecki were expecting their first child together.

Their son, Angelo, was born on October 19, 2012.

Adele had “the ultimate love story” with Simon

Even though their love story stayed under wraps, Adele has shared that her love for Simon Konecki was something most people do not have a chance to experience.

In an interview 60 Minutes Australia back in 2015, Adele revealed, “Being in such an amazing relationship with someone that’s so there for me and so loyal and is really part of my core now. That’s what made me write about everything I’ve ever done, because I’ve got his love.”

Though Konecki is supportive of Adele, she did admit that he isn’t too invested in her music.

“He cares about me more than anything, but he doesn’t care about the style of music that I make and stuff like that,” Adele shared about Simon.

In 2017, it was speculated Adele and Konecki secretly married after they were spotted wearing rings on their ring fingers.

During her acceptance speech at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, Adele confirmed that she was in fact married. In her speech, Adele called Konecki her husband when thanking him.

Then a month later, Adele told her audience at a concert in Brisbane, Australia, “I’m married now”.

Many believed that Adele and Simon had the perfect relationship due to the way they acted towards one another whenever they were in public.

Adele and Simon always showed affection towards one another and one romantic gesture really stood out amongst the rest.

Back in 2016 during the end of one of Adele’s concerts, instead of regular confetti falling down onto the audience, Simon Konecki replaced the confetti with handwritten love notes to honor the couple’s fifth year anniversary.

Where did it go wrong?

Due to Adele and Simon Konecki keeping their private life away from prying eyes, it is still unclear why the couple decided to end their relationship?

The former couple was last spotted together earlier this year attending  Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road concert in Los Angeles.

It is not certain whether they were considering splitting at that time but over the past few weeks, Adele has been spotted spending quality time with friends such as Jennifer Lawrence.

On April 19, Adele and Simon Konecki announced that they would be ending their marriage after eight years together.

Though they are going their separate ways, Adele and Simon are committed to co-parenting their son.

“Adele and her partner have separated,” a statement from her rep read. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
