British singer, Adele has separated from husband Simon Konecki, three years after the pair wed in a secret ceremony.
In an emailed statement to the Associated Press, representatives for the singer, Benny Tarantini wrote, “Adele and her partner have separated.”
“They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
The pair had a six-year-old son Angelo who was born in 2012.
The 30-year-old singer married Konecki, an investment banker turned charity boss in 2016 after five years of dating.
They married in secret and Adele first addressed the wedding publicly during an acceptance speech at the 2017 Grammys, where she thanked her “husband”.
The announcement of the split comes weeks after the singer was spotted entering a recording studio in New York City last month, prompting speculation that a new album is in the works.
The best-selling London-born artist is known for her chart-topping albums 19, 21 and 25.
Her third album, 25, sold a record-breaking 800,000 copies in its first week and became the best-selling album of 2015.
Konecki, 45, left his job at Lehman Brothers in 2005, and founded the ethical water company Life Water. The company and its charity partner Drop 4 Drop “fund clear water projects across the globe”.
“I was originally an investment banker at Lehman Brothers and I was doing well and earning a lot of money, but I got sick of that greedy and corrupted world,” he told Management Today in 2012.
