Acclaimed singer Adele is officially single after reaching an agreement with her husband, Simon Konecki, on their divorce settlement.
According to US Weekly, the ‘Someone Like You’ hitmaker and charity CEO are now “officially divorced” after a judge signed the settlement.
The news comes nearly two years after Adele, 32, and Konecki, 46, announced their split in April 2019. They each represented themselves in their divorce. Though they filed a judgment packet with the court on Friday, a judge still needs to sign off on the agreement before they’re officially divorced.
It was reported that the singer was forced to employ mediators to split her £140million ($190million) fortune during the proceedings.
The publication claims that the former couple submitted a “judgment package” in the previous month where they “opted to determine rights to community property and debts through mediation”.
The majority of the disputes were thought to have stemmed from the singer’s fortune which included their impressive £34.7m ($47.4m) property.
“They made it very clear they didn’t want to set lawyers on each other but the process hasn’t been exactly straightforward all the same. The priority was making sure they did right by their son, Angelo.”The source said.
“The first thing they agreed on was sharing custody, and since then it has been about dividing up the rest of their marital finances fairly.”
Adele and Konecki welcomed a son, Angelo, together in 2012, a year after they started dating. Adele confirmed she and Konecki were married during a March 2017 concert in Australia. Reports circulated that they had tied the knot in January of that year when they were photographed wearing matching rings on their ring fingers.
The former couple had announced in April 2019 that they were going their separate ways with the singer filing court documents five months after the news broke.
However, Adele wrote on Instagram in October 2020 that she was single.
“I’m going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am!” she said, in part. “Peace out till next year.”
