Adele and Husband Simon Konecki Split After More Than 7 Years Together

Adele and Husband Simon Konecki Split After More Than 7 Years Together

Adele and her husband, Simon Konecki, have split after more than seven years together.

“Adele and her partner have separated,” the singer’s representative Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh said in a statement to the Associated Press.

“They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”

Representatives for the star did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The 30-year-old singer (born Adele Adkins) and entrepreneur-philanthropist Konecki, 44, have long kept the details of their romance under wraps.

The “Hello” singer first addressed their relationship in a blog post in January 2012, the same month they were spotted on an airboat ride in the Everglades. In June 2012, Adele revealed she and Konecki were expecting a baby, and the pair welcomed their son Angelo on Oct. 19, 2012.

The small family has lived a quiet life, spending time between her native London and Beverly Hills, where they bought a home in 2016.

“The reason her relationship works with Simon is because they are on the same page,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “Their priority is their son, and Adele loves being a mother. Angelo is a very happy little boy.”

In a Vanity Fair cover story in December 2016, Adele opened up about her bond with the “confident” and “perfect” Konecki for one of the first times, calling it “the most serious relationship I’ve ever been in.”

“I have no desire to be with anyone in show business because we all have egos,” she told VF. “He’s not threatened by any stage of my life that I’m going for, and that’s an amazing thing.”

In January 2017, Adele sparked rumors she and Konecki had married when she was photographed with a band on her left ring finger.

The singer went on to hint at their marriage the following month at the Grammys as she accepted the album of the year award for her smash album 25: “Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son — you’re the only reason I do it.”

Then she finally confirmed they had wed at a March 2017 concert in Brisbane, where she told the audience: “I’m married now.”

Could Meghan Markles Baby Be Born on the Queens Birthday  

Could Meghan Markles Baby Be Born on the Queens Birthday

The arrival of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s first child will be quite the celebration!

With The Duchess of Sussex, 37, just days away from giving birth, many devoted royal fans have speculated that the baby will enter the world on the Queen‘s 93 birthday — this Sunday.

The special day also happens to fall on Easter.

It appears fans of Meghan and Harry, 34, are so convinced of the due date that that they’re even making bets — 8/1 odds the baby will be born on April 21, according to The Daily Express.

“Royal fans are sure Meghan and Harry will be meeting their child this weekend, particularly on Easter Sunday, leaving his or her to share their big day with the Queen,” Jessica Bridge of U.K. gambling company Ladbrokes told the outlet.

Princess Charles and Camila, Duchess of Cornwall also dropped a major clue about Meghan’s due date earlier this week when they announced their visit to Germany on May 7.

The three-day tour will begin in Berlin and take them to Leipzig and Munich, where they will carry out a series of engagements to strengthen the relationship between the U.K. and Germany.

Since Charles, 70, and Camilla, 71, are expected to be nearby when Meghan and Prince Harry’s child is born, it can be assumed that Baby Sussex will be born prior to their May 7 trip.

During Camilla‘s historic visit to Cuba with Prince Charles last month, she was heard telling an American fan who asked if she was excited about Baby Sussex, “Yes, very much so.”

And just one day after Meghan’s pregnancy news broke, Charles was spotted on a whiskey distillery tour in Scotland. Asked if he’d toasted to the happy announcement yet, he replied, “Oh yes, absolutely. Several times.”

In addition to the baby’s due date, Ladbrokes is also taking bets on the the baby’s name. Many are banking on a nod to Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana.

Meanwhile, Victoria remains the favorite name at 8/1 odds, Diana takes the second spot on the list of girls’ names with 12/1 odds.

As for boys’ names, it’s a tight race between Albert, Arthur and Phillip – all tied at 10/1.

Seeking Sister Wife Star Vanessa Cobbs Announces Split from Her Polygamist Husband and His Wife

Seeking Sister Wife Star Vanessa Cobbs Announces Split from Her Polygamist Husband and His Wife

Seeking Sister Wife star Vanessa Cobbs is calling it quits with the Snowden family.

Vanessa announced her decision to leave her polygamist husband Dimitri Snowden and his wife Ashley on Instagram explaining, “After some deep soul searching, I have decided to part ways with the Snowdens.”

“I love Ashley, Dimitri, and the children so much, and will continue to do so always. However, my love and commitment to them overshadowed my love and commitment to myself,” Vanessa wrote.

“I was not being truly honest with myself until recently. I was ignoring my inner guidance which was telling me that I do not belong with them in the capacity that they need me to.”

“I now know that just because you love someone (or a family), does not necessarily mean that you are meant to be with them. Sometimes their long-established dynamic is not aligned with your own personal growth and paths forward,” Vanessa continued. “Thank you to all who have supported us on this journey.”

Despite their separation, Vanessa says the “love and life” she had with the Snowdens “was very real.”

“I still believe that polygamy can be, and is, a beautiful thing.”

“Love who you want to and love out loud and proud. I wish Ashley, Dimitri, and the children nothing but love and happiness, and I know they wish me the same.”

On the TLC show, which follows four polygamist families as they try to find and then introduce a new wife into their homes, viewers watched as Dimitri, Ashley, their three kids and Vanessa attempted to become one family.

When Dimitri met Vanessa, he and Ashley were not legally married but saw themselves as husband and wife. Quickly into the new romance, the couple invited Vanessa to live with them in California and Dimitri later proposed.

We are deeply saddened by Vanessa’s decision to leave our family. We take our family dynamic and the relationships we build with others very seriously. We make sure we always do our best and give our absolute all. We also know we must respect when someone feels they must move on and try to do that with a spirit of acceptance.
