Adele Will Not Be Paying Her Ex-Husband Spousal Support After Finalizing Divorce
During high-profile celebrity divorces, it’s common for spouses to ask for spousal support. In Adele’s case, she will not be paying ex-husband Simon Konecki spousal support. The “Hello” singer shares 8-year-old son Angelo with the Life Water co-founder.
Adele And Simon Konecki Will Not Be Paying Spousal Support
Adele filed for divorce in September 2019. The pair were married for 7 years. The divorce was just finalized just last week. In the part of the divorce settlement that was made public, Adele and Simon will be sharing legal and physical custody of Angelo. Most of the divorce settlement was confidential but it was made known that neither party will be paying spousal support.
Further details about child support were not made public. It is also not clear if Adele paid Simon any other money for anything. “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” her team said in a statement to the Associated Press at the time of their split.
The pair have always kept their relationship out of the public eye since they started dating in 2011. Their nuptials were kept a secret until the Grammys in 2017 when they finally revealed it to the world.
Naturally, everyone wanted to know why the couple had split. “They had a lot in common early on, but eventually they just grew apart,” an insider shared with E! in 2019. “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.”
She Has Moved On From The Relationship And Is Focusing On Her Son
At the time of their breakup, Adele remained focused on being happy. “She’s free and spirited and feels like a new person,” a source told People at the time. “She’s happy, healthy and eager to continue to better herself.”
In 2020, rumors began swirling that Adele was dating rapper Skepta. She later confirmed in an Instagram post that she is single while reflecting on hosting SNL.
Adele is a very involved mom and is very close to her son. “Adele’s son is everything to her. Her whole life revolves around him,” a source close to the 32-year-old singer said. “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.”
The singer has also gone on a major weight loss journey while going through her divorce. Her shocking transformation made headlines and heightened people’s interest in the latest craze, the sirtfood diet.
