ADELE has opened up on her short-lived marriage to former investment banker Simon Konecki, admitting that she’s “embarrassed” about the split.
British singer Adele has broken her silence on her split from her ex-husband, branding the situation “embarrassing”. Adele, 33, and her ex-husband Simon Konecki announced that they had decided to go their separate ways two years ago after being married for a short period of time, before their divorce was finalised earlier this year.
When I was 30, my entire life fell apart and I had no warning of it
Speaking for the first time about her marriage, Adele spoke candidly about her nine year relationship with her ex-husband.
The singer said: “We got married when I was 30… and then I left.”
When asked why she decided to end the marriage, Adele revealed that she was too “embarrassed” to go into further detail about the painful split.
She replied: “I’m not gonna go into that detail.
“Remember I am embarrassed. This is very embarrassing,” she added.
However, she admitted: “It wasn’t very long.”
Speaking about reaching a milestone birthday, Adele looked back on how her life took an unexpected turn.
“When I was 30, my entire life fell apart and I had no warning of it,” she told British Vogue in her first interview in five years.
Addressing the break up, Adele said: “We kept it to ourselves for a very long time”, before revealing that she still trusts her ex-husband “with her life”, adding: “I f**ked up. It didn’t work.”
Earlier this year, the Rolling In The Deep singer finalised her divorce from the charity CEO after separating in 2019.
Documents have confirmed that the pair share custody of their son, Angelo, eight.
Adele and Simon welcomed their son in 2012.
The megastar sparked a frenzy back in 2017 when she referred to Simon as “my husband” during an acceptance speech at the Grammys.
But court documents reveal that the pair weren’t officially married until the year after.
A statement from Adele’s representative confirmed her divorce, saying: “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,” it ended.
Last month, the singer went Instagram official with her new beau, sports agent Rich Paul.
The star posted several pictures of her and Rich as they attended basketball player. “Brinkwire Summary News”.
