Adele's estranged husband, Simon Konecki has just filed a response in the couple's divorce, and it seems the split will be very amicable.

According to new legal documents obtained by The Blast, Simon is also seeking joint custody of the couple's 6-year old son, Angelo.

In his filing, Simon also agrees that all financial issues, regarding the couple's breakup, can be handled in "private mediation."

As we reported, Adele and her estranged husband did not have a prenup, and splitting up a $180 million dollar fortune will be quite the undertaking.
