Adele has filed for divorce from Simon Konecki, according to legal documents filed in the US. The divorce papers were lodged at a court in Los Angeles, five months after the Hello singer confirmed she and her husband had parted ways following three years of marriage.

The 31-year-old began dating Simon in 2011, and they welcomed their son Angelo together the following year. The pair mostly kept their relationship out of the public eye, but Adele publicly addressed their secret wedding during an acceptance speech at the 2017 Grammys. In her speech, 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." She later spoke about the early days of falling in love to an Australian audience during a performance in March 2017, saying: "And I am addicted to that feeling. Obviously, I cannot go through those feelings because I'm married now. I've found my next person."

Praising her friend’s "incredible" figure in July, Spice Girls singer Mel C said she had seen Adele in the gym, telling SiriusXM: "She was on the treadmill. She looks incredible, she is working out hard."
