ADELE’S divorce from her ex Simon Konecki has officially been finalized, two years after she first announced they were splitting.
The former couple started dating in 2011, and Adele had revealed in early 2017 that they’d secretly wed.

The 32-year-old singer never revealed when exactly she and Simon got married, only sharing the news by calling him her “husband” at the 2017 Grammys, following by telling her concert audience, “I’m married now!”
A couple of years later, the duo called it quits.
Adele filed for divorce from Simon, with whom she shares 8-year-old son Angelo, in September 2019.
After almost two years, the paperwork has been finalized and a judge has signed off on their settlement, according to Us Weekly.

Th exes reached a settlement earlier this year and Adele filed a judgement package in court on January 15 and had just been waiting for it to be signed off on by a judge.
They are reportedly seeking joint custody of their eight-year-old son Angelo.
An LA court ruled the outcome of the settlement will remain private, and both Adele and Simon, 46, signed a confidentiality agreement around the divorce last year.
The Someone Like You singer has also agreed not to write tracks about him as a mark of “respect.”

A source close to the star said: “Heartbreak has helped Adele shift records over the years but this split is quite different.
“They’re both aware their son Angelo should be protected and that’s why Adele has agreed not to sing about their relationship.
“Her new album will have a different sound anyway, so it hasn’t bothered her too much that Simon quietly expected her to keep their relationship out of her music.”
The Hello singer met Simon after the pair were allegedly introduced by mutual pal Ed Sheeran in 2011 and were first spotted together in January 2012.
She was heavily linked to grime star Skepta last year after they were spotted out together on nights out.
In October, a week after her lauded SNL appearance, Adele confirmed she was single.
