Fans shocked by Adele split from hubby Simon Konecki
Social media was left in shock on Friday after British musician Adele announced that she had split from her husband of three years, Simon Konecki.
The news was confirmed through a statement from her representatives.
"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," her reps told AP.
The pair gave birth to their son, Angelo, in 2012.
Adele has always been private about her personal life, but confirmed at the 2017 Grammys that she had married.
“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 said in her album of the year acceptance speech at the awards.
The news sent shockwaves across the world, with fans taking to social media to share their reactions.
They were also excited at the prospect of great "breakup" music in the aftermath of the split.
I love Adele & her music but to use her divorce & pain to joke about a new album is disgusting. She has a child & her husband was/is a huge part of her life. Have some decency ppl. If she does decide to come out with an album, I hope that it serves her as positive outlet ❤️ pic.twitter.com/i0e3Znpi2b— MRD (@mrd_1990) April 20, 2019
