Adele might just be one of the wealthiest musicians in the U.K. Despite just being a mere 31-years old, the singer-songwriter is speculated to be worth £150 million, which translates to roughly $184 million U.S. dollars. While Adele has admitted to ‘Vanity Fair’ before that “I don’t come from money. It’s not that important to me,” perhaps her tune will be changing during her divorce proceedings. While details have remained private regarding the musician’s divorce with ex-husband Simon Konecki, could he walk away with half of her fortune?
Adele and Konecki reportedly met in the summer of 2011, and just a year later the duo confirmed that they were expecting a child together. Angelo was born in October 2012, and many details surrounding his birth were kept private. It was reported in early 2017 that Adele and Konecki did get married, as they were both spotted wearing matching rings. Then when the singer won a Grammy award for Album of the Year in 2017, Adele thanked her “husband” which only then confirmed the news.
But after over seven years together, Adele confirmed that she and Konecki would be divorcing, but the pair would continue to co-parent together. In September 2019, Adele officially filed for divorce from Konecki in the United States. Right now, many of the details surrounding their divorce have been kept private. While it has been alleged that the relationship ended from “irreconcilable differences” many have speculated that it was Adele’s rise to fame and ever-busy schedule that led to the eventual split.
According to recent reports from the UK’s ‘The Sun, the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement before being wed, so Konecki may end up receiving quite a bit of money from this separation. It might be difficult to find out any more details regarding the couple and their divorce from here on out, however, as a Los Angeles divorce court judge has granted that the details of the divorce will remain private. ‘The Sun’ also reported that a judge ruled that “financial, sales or other confidential business information” will be kept private, and even the lawyers will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
While the true details of the divorce will likely be kept hidden throughout the proceedings, one can only surmise what the payday for Konecki will be if a prenup hadn’t been signed. Adele has seemingly been moving on from all the divorce drama, however, as she has been romantically linked to a few different men in the media, most notably Harry Styles after vacationing together, and U.K. rapper Skepta. While Adele did not confirm the dating rumors, a source revealed to ‘The Sun’ that Adele and the rapper have been spending more time together, and they have “been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up.”
