Queen of the power ballad Adele has split with her husband Simon Konecki after seven years together, according to her representatives.

In a statement on Friday, they said the pair were "committed to raising their son together lovingly".

Adele, 30, and charity CEO Simon Konecki, 45, have made a decision to go their separate ways, after their marriage was confirmed in February 2017. "As always they ask for privacy", the rep added. "There will be no further comment". Rumors of a secret wedding began swirling in December 2016, when the "Hello" singer was photographed with a band on her finger.

The British songstress announced her marriage to her longtime partner, Konecki, during a concert in Brisbane, Australia, in 2017 and thanked Konecki during the 2017 Grammys, calling him her "husband" at the awards ceremony.
