According to the second tragic breakup report of the day, Adele and husband Simon Konecki, together since 2011, have decided to end their relationship. “Adele and her partner have separated,” the singer’s representatives told the Associate Press on Friday. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always, they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”

While the pair have been extremely private throughout the course of their relationship, they did welcome son Angelo in 2012. Later, while accepting Album of the Year for 25 at the 2017 Grammys, Adele addressed Konecki from the stage. “I love you, my manager, my husband, and my son,” she said during her acceptance speech. “You’re the only reason I do it.” Later that spring, in March, the singer told a Brisbane audience, “I’m married now.” While sad to hear, this does really contextualize that night Adele and Jennifer Lawrence were going absolutely nuts in a New York gay bar last month.
