Adeleis moving on.
The 31-year-old British singer filed for divorce from Simon Konecki on Thursday, E! News can confirm. In April 2019, a rep for Adele announced she and her partner of at least eight years had gone their separate ways. Referencing Adele and Simon's 6-year-old son Angelo, the statement read in part, "They are committed to raising their son together lovingly."
In documents obtained by E! News, Adele cites "irreconcilable difference" as the reason for the divorce. She is seeking joint physical and legal custody of their son. Additionally, the filing reveals her and Simon's wedding date: May 4, 2018.
A source previously told E! News the exes experienced a shift in lifestyles, explaining, "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."
The notoriously private star has yet to comment publicly on the breakup, but did reflect on the power of self-love while celebrating her birthday in May.
