Five months after announcing their split, Adele has filed for divorce from her husband Simon Konecki.

The 31-year-old filed the documents on Thursday in Los Angeles, according to People

The Someone Like You singer released a statement confirming her split from Konecki earlier this year.

Released by her representatives, the statement read:

“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”.

They have one son together, Angelo, who was born in 2012.

The couple have always been extremely private about their relationship and rarely speak publicly about each other.

Their marriage was only confirmed during the singer’s Grammys acceptance speech in 2017 when she described Simon as her husband.

Sharing a list of people she wanted to thank, she said:

“Grammys, I appreciate it. The academy, I love you. My manager, my husband and my son. You’re the only reason I do it. Thank you so much. Thank you very much to everybody”.

It’s thought that Adele and Simon were dating for five years before getting married in 2016.

Simon is an entrepreneur and CEO of Drop4Drop, a charity that campaigns for clean water to be made accessible globally.
