Adele and Husband Simon Konecki Split A Look Back at Their Extremely Private Relationship

Adele and Husband Simon Konecki Split A Look Back at Their Extremely Private Relationship

After more than 7 years together, Adele and her husband Simon Konecki have called it quits.

Despite their decision to end their marriage, a rep for the Grammy winner, 30, says the former couple is “committed to raising their son together lovingly,” according to the Associated Press.

Adele and Konecki welcomed Angelo on Oct. 19, 2012.

Over the years, Adele (born Adele Adkins) has remained a prominent figure in music, gaining a reputation as the reigning queen of chart-topping sadness.

Though fans of the “Hello” crooner have watched Adele’s career reach new heights, she’s kept her personal life extremely private.

Thirteen years Adele’s senior, Konecki was something of a wunderkind. He grew up in New York and moved to London when he was 10, studying at the prestigious Eton College for two years. He became a foreign exchange broker at 17 and was a power player at Lehman Brothers by 24. He left Lehman in 2005 to found the eco-friendly water brand Life Water and its charity, drop4drop, which brings clean water to developing countries across the world.

Previously married to a stylist, Konecki got divorced in 2008. Konecki and Adele met in 2011, and she first addressed their relationship in a since-deleted post on her blog around Jan. 2012.

Some of Konecki’s relatives live in Boca Raton, Florida, and he and Adele were spotted going on an airboat ride through the Everglades that same month. In June of that year, she announced on her blog that the pair were expecting a child together.

Adele remained cagey about their relationship and their child for some time, pointedly refusing to share Angelo’s name with the press.

In 2015 in a rare move, she opened up to 60 Minutes Australia, saying, “It’s only because of and because of our kid and stuff that I’m all right.”

She added that despite being supportive, Konecki generally isn’t too invested in her music, though he did enjoy her most recent album, 25. “He cares about me more than anything, but he doesn’t care about the style of music that I make and stuff like that. He just loved it.”

The small family has lived a quiet life, spending time between her native Londo

Danny Amendola Slams Ex Olivia Culpo and Brands Zedd a Scrawny Little F— in Explosive Rant

NFL star Danny Amendola has taken aim at his ex-girlfriend Olivia Culpo.

In an explosive rant on Instagram, which has since been deleted, Amendola, 33, slammed Culpo, 26, as “f—– up” and blamed her very public “lifestyle” for their split.

“I believe there should be a boundary btw private life and social media. Olivia believes in fishbowl lifestyle. This fundamental difference was huge in our relationship,” Amendola began.

“If you’re my real friend you know I’m private. My mother, brother, father and nephew are closest to me in this world and you don’t see one picture of them and that’s for their protection from those who criticize and judge. I believe in nailing picture frames on the inside of my house to remind the ones I love that I care.”

“Olivia chooses and wants to be noticed on the internet and in Hollywood to make money. Which was hard for me to understand but quickly had to learn. Where as the cost of fame in this world doesn’t appeal to me. I play ball for one reason and that’s RESPECT,” Amendola continued.

“The only reason I’m writing this post is because, whether I like it or not, we lived in the public eye. Some of it is amazing! I’ve met some of the nicest people from all over the world and Olivia and I had some amazing times together… just like any other loving relationships we fought.”

Amendola went on to take ownership for his part in the demise of their romance, but he made sure to note that he wasn’t the only one to blame.

“A lot of time it was my fault bc let’s be honest I can be an idiot. But! Yup! She’s f— up too! and if you cross me I’m a hard mfer to deal with,” Amendola wrote.

“The universe brought her and I together to enjoy life, love and learn. We celebrated that as often as we could. And the sex was f— crazy too.”

Amendola then alleged that Culpo would get “so mad” at him for not sharing photos of her on Instagram, but to him that was “fake, sometimes toxic, but sometimes beautiful.”

“Truth is I have a whole cellphone of funny, embarrassing, sexy pics IG would love to have. However, living a public image isn’t my choice, it’s something I’ve learned to deal with.”

Amendola explained he opened about their relationship in hopes of sharing his side of the story.
