Adele is not only an amazing singer with a gorgeous voice, she is also known to have an incredible personality. Her talent and name proceeds her in many ways. However, what you may not have known about this amazing singer is that she is married to Simon Konecki. The duo have been together since 2011, but got married in 2017. They also share a lovely son named Angelo.
In 2019, Adele sadly announced that her and Konecki were in the process of getting a divorce. Ouch!
Since Adele and Konecki began their relationship, the duo have led very private lives. This privacy also extended to their son and the couple once sued a company for publishing photos of her son during a family outing.
When Adele released her album titled “25” in 2015, fans could not stop talking about her heart-break song titled “Hello.”
The song was a reference to her past relationships and how much they hurt her. This is why it is very alarming that the singer is filing for a divorce form her husband.
The media’s interpretation of the divorce settlement is the real reason for the uproar on Twitter, where Adele trended for hours.
Adele asked the court to keep the details of the divorce proceedings in confidentiality and the court agreed to this.
Since this issue came up on social media, some fans have been arguing with each other and airing several opinions on the issue.
Some fans believe that it is not the right thing for Adele to pay that sum of money to her husband, upon divorce as she worked hard for it.
There have been social media debates regarding Adele in the past, but this recent one is a bit different and unexpected. According to reports, Adele did file for divorce from Konecki, stating irreconcilable differences as the reason. Also, fans have misinterpreted the £140m divorce headlines by several media outlets.
Many believe that Adele is going to have to pay her husband a settlement of £140 million, but that is not the case. However, Adele’s entire net worth is £140 million and she may be expected to share it in half with her ex-husband.
Other fans asked if Adele was on the receiving end, would she take the money?
Then, some other people who are agreeing with this settlement, stated that this is only a sign of equality. Some went as far as referencing the fact that millionaires like Jeff Bezos and Tiger woods has to pay a fortune to their ex-wives after their divorce.
The details of the divorce and the settlement that will occur will not be published online as Adele wants it private, so, there is no way to know what would happen at the end of the day.
