“They are committed to raising their son together lovingly,” Adele’s representatives told The Associated Press via email. “As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
The Grammy winner met Konecki, a water charity executive, back in 2011. Adele surprised fans at the Grammys in 2017 when she publicly confirmed her marriage to Konecki while accepting the Album of the Year award.
Adele and Konecki welcomed their son, Angelo, in 2012.
The singer’s fans shared messages of support on social media, while many also argued that the news shouldn’t spark excitement over the possibility of new music:
Perhaps it’s the former single mom in me, but all these celebratory tweets about Adele’s divorce — “a new album!” — makes me bone weary. All I want for her and her child right now is a quiet patch of the world where no one is excited for her sadness.— Connie Schultz (@ConnieSchultz) April 20, 2019

A lot of the comments I have seen about Adele's divorce has been excitement over new music. No compassion, no basic human decency. You guys suck.— Steamboat Suzy (@Pyarrai) April 20, 2019
