Adele and her husband have finally announced that they have reached a divorce settlement after almost two years. The couple separated in April 2019. Five months later the singer filed for divorce.
Although it has taken time, this has been one of the most amicable settlements in personal and financial issues. Although the star has a staggering fortune of her own, her husband also had a small fortune as CEO of his self built Broker association.
They decided to use mediation to divide their combined properties and debts. The singer requested an LA court to keep the details of her divorce private and it was granted by the court.
On Friday January 15, the couple filed the terms of their settlement in court. They represented themselves and did not publicly disclose how the combined £140 million ($190 million) has been divided.
Sources and friends of Adele and Simon said that there never was a chance of acrimony. Despite having a son together, Angelo Adkins who is now eight, the couple grew apart after years of togetherness and were said to have a platonic relationship before their separation.
Adele has always led a private life, despite her public persona. She publicly revealed that she was married at the 2017 Grammy Awards as she acknowledged Simon as her husband, after she received the Album of the Year. Adele was in a relationship with Simon in 2011. In October, 2012 they were proud parents of a son named Angel Adkins. In 2016 they got married secretly. The couple had been married for three years.
They had split their time between houses in LA, Kensington – West London and Brighton. They had an “unconventional relationship” as Adele enjoyed being stateside while Simon preferred life in the U.K., with family and friends.
Since her separation Adele has lost over 100 pounds in weight and looks more gorgeous than ever. The Skyfall singer joked about her new look in SNL opening monologue saying: “I know I look really, really different since you last saw me.
“But, actually, because of all the COVID restrictions…I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me. and this is the half I chose.”
