    Adele's divorce from Simon Konecki has been finalized

    The 32-year-old singer and the 46-year-old charity boss split two years ago, and now their marriage has officially been dissolved after a judge signed off on their settlement on Thursday (03.04.21), Us Weekly reports


    The pair represented themselves and will share joint custody of their eight-year-old son Angelo.

    The divorce being finalised comes after it was recently claimed the exes reached an agreement on custody and assets in January, with the help of mediators.

    A source said: "This has been a very long time coming, but the sums of money involved and the assets are absolutely huge.

    “They made it very clear they didn’t want to set lawyers on each other but the process hasn’t been exactly straightforward all the same. The priority was making sure they did right by their son, Angelo.

    “The first thing they agreed on was sharing custody, and since then it has been about dividing up the rest of their marital finances fairly.

    “Fortunately they have managed to get there without an explosive public court case, slanging matches or scandalous claims about each other, and that gives them the best possible chance of staying on good terms in the future.

    "There have been disagreements on the way but the mediation did its job."

    The pair started dating in summer 2011 and the British singer gave birth to their son Angelo in October 2012.

    Adele and Simon married in secret in 2016, and they always made a concerted effort to keep their relationship private.

    Their separation after three years of marriage was confirmed in April 2019, while Adele filed court documents in Los Angeles five months later.

    Meanwhile, the ’Skyfall’ hitmaker is said to have "been pouring her heart and soul" into her comeback album and found music "like therapy" since the end of her marriage.

    A source said previously: "Adele is pouring her heart and soul into this record, including how she feels post-divorce

    "She's been a fan of Raphael since she was a teenager and loves his back catalogue. She wants her next album to be full of soul, with a more eclectic sound."
