The Real Reason Adele Is Ending Her 7-Year Marriage To Simon Konecki

When the news hit that Adele was ending her 7-year marriage to her partner, Simon Konecki –the world was shocked. The notoriously private singer has kept her relationship under wraps –so the world just assumed that she and Konecki were raising their son and living out the dream away from the spotlight.

Unfortunately, marriages can be difficult even when one party isn’t mega-famous, and Adele and Konecki have decided to pull the plug on their relationship. But what is the real reason Adele is ending her marriage?

This is the real reason why Adele is ending her 7-year marriage to Simon Konecki

Everyone was stunned over Easter weekend when Adele’s rep shared that the 21 singer was ending her marriage. The rep’s statement said, “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.”

Thankfully, there is nothing salacious or terrible that occurred during the relationship that led to divorce. The songstress and her partner have simply grown apart. An insider told E!,

They had a lot in common early on, but eventually, they just grew apart. She became a bigger and bigger star, and he was okay [with] being in the background, but as she got bigger and had massive tours and intense schedules, they just grew apart. Their marriage was clearly working for a very long time. Whenever she was out at big openings and special events, he was usually with her, and they looked really just happy together and in love. They were into the marriage pretty much until they decided this just isn’t working anymore.

Is Adele’s $180 million net worth at stake in her divorce?

Adele has never seemed to care about money. In fact, in 2016 she told Vanity Fair, “I don’t come from money. It’s not that important a part of my life.” However, since she and Konecki have been married for 7-years, half of her earnings since 2012 could be at stake –especially if a prenup wasn’t in place.”

Sandra Davis, a divorce attorney who represented Princess Diana of Wales told the U.K. Times, “What is made during the marriage is likely to be split on an equal basis. It doesn’t matter who did what, or who contributed what.” However, Adele could claim that her talent is a genius-level and her former partner would get significantly less.

Will Adele’s divorce get ugly?

Since both Adele and Konecki are extremely low-key and focused on their son, we doubt their split will get nasty. An insider told People, “Adele’s son is everything to her. Her whole life revolves around him. I just can’t see her divorce getting messy because she’s so careful when it comes to her son. She’s always five steps ahead in terms of how a decision will affect him.”
