Who Was Adele’s Husband Before Divorce And How Long Were They Married?

Despite being one of the most famous musicians on the planet, with hundreds of millions of records sold since she began her career, Adele has made a remarkable habit of keeping details of her personal life private. However, when Adele announced her split from her husband in April 2019, fans and observers went scrambling in search of information about her husband.

Meanwhile, the British music star was married to Simon Konecki and in this article, we cover everything you need to know about him, including their marriage and their eventual separation. Scroll down to learn more about the ex-husband of the Rolling in the Deep singer.

Who was Adele’s Husband – Simon Konecki?

Unlike several of other major music stars who are either married or in a relationship with fellow celebrities in the music or film industry, Adele’s dedication to a private life led her to a relationship with someone outside of the entertainment industry. She got married to a man named Simon Konecki who is a charity entrepreneur.

Not much is known about him except for the fact he was born on the 17th of April, 1974 in New York where he was raised for the first ten years of his life before relocating to London with his family. Born to Rosemary and Andrew Konecki, Simon grew up with a couple of sisters who attended Roedean School while he attended Eton, the prestigious boys’ school.

Now Adele’s ex-husband, Simon Konecki began his professional life at the young age of 17 when he became a foreign exchange broker. He worked as a broker for ten years, out of which he spent three years working for Lehman Brothers, running its teams of senior brokers. A desire to make a positive impact on the world drove Simon to quit his career as a broker/investment banker and establish Drop4Drop, a charity focused on bringing quality water to areas across the world that lacked it.

He went into partnership with Lucas White, a friend he met while he was studying in England and launched the organization. Through the charity, he has worked with personalities like Sid Owen and comedian, Stephen Fry. Before setting up Drop4Drop, he and his business partner also founded an eco-friendly brand of bottled water named Life Water.

Four years after his divorce, the first evidence and suggestion of a relationship between Adele and Simon Konecki began to surface in January 2012, when he was seen on vacation with the singer in Florida. While having a nice time on an alligator-spotting airboat, rumors of a possible relationship between the two of them began to swirl amidst a prior statement by Adele urging her fans to follow his charity if they want her to join Twitter.

As time passed, more details about their relationship began to emerge, such as a rumor that they had begun a relationship before Simon Konecki divorced his ex-wife. Although the rumor was denied by Adele, it was deepened when Adele and Simon welcomed a child in October 2012.

The child, Angelo James Konecki, was born on the 19th of October, 2012. A couple of years after having a child together, Adele, in a rare public statement about her personal life confirmed a swirling rumor that she and Simon had gotten married in early 2017 when she referred to him as her husband during an acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards in 2017.

Two years after she confirmed their marriage, Adele, through her representatives shocked the world when she announced that she and her husband were getting a divorce. Although the reason for the divorce hasn’t been made public as is most facts about Adele’s personal life, the couple announced they will continue to be co-parents to their child.
