Who Did Adele Date Before Her Husband, Simon Konecki?

It must be the season for breaking up because yet another celebrity has called it quits with their significant other. This time, it’s singer, Adele who is walking away from her relationship.

Adele and her husband Simon Konecki were together for over seven years, before deciding to go their separate ways.

“Adele and her partner have separated,” Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh, representatives for the singer said in a statement to the Associated Press.

“They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”

Who has Adele dated?

Adele has always been private about her relationships. This could be partially due to the fact that she is so open in her music, so revealing who she is dating would also mean that the world would know intimate details about that person.

Adele first rose to fame with her album 19 but solidified her place as a musical powerhouse with her album, 21. She said that the album was written in 2010 over a three-month period after a painful breakup.

So, who was the man who inspired such a powerful album? No one really knows. There are a few clues to his identity, though.

“He was a few years older than me,” she once said in an interview. “He made me feel alive … and made me really passionate about food, wine, film, sociology, history and traveling. He opened my eyes to a lot of things.”

The singer never directly revealed who her tormented lyrics were about.

“Who cares?” she once told The Guardian when asked who her songs were about. “Nobody famous, just old boyfriends. I don’t date celebrities. I ain’t f****** Taylor Swift, do you know what I mean?”

But up until meeting her husband, she did think that the man that she wrote 21 about was the one.

“I don’t think I’ll ever forgive myself for not making my relationship with my ex on 21 work, because he’s the love of my life,” she told the outlet.

Adele’s relationship with Konecki

The singer first went public with her relationship with Konecki in January of 2012. Around that same time, she was seen in the everglades on an airboat with him, as well.

In June of that year, she announced that she and her beau were expecting a child and in October, they welcomed their son, Angelo, into the world.

“The reason her relationship works with Simon is because they are on the same page,” a source once told People. “Their priority is their son, and Adele loves being a mother. Angelo is a very happy little boy.”

In 2017, people started to wonder if the private couple had gotten married when Adele began wearing a ring on her left ring finger.

She didn’t address the rumors until the Grammy’s that year when she won album of the year for her album, 25.

“Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband, and my son — you’re the only reason I do it,” she said on stage.

Then, in March at her concert in Brisbane, she confirmed to the audience that she was married.
