Adele’s ex husband Simon Konecki ‘has resigned himself to the singer detailing their divorce’

Adele’s ex husband Simon Konecki has reportedly resigned himself to the singer detailing their divorce in her new heartbreak album 30.

The charity CEO knew the risks going into his relationship with the songstress, 33, and that she ‘wears her heart on her sleeve’ in her songs, a new report claims.   

The former couple announced they were going their separate ways in April 2019, with Adele filing court documents five months later. They share one son – Angelo – who is nine.

A source told The Mirror: ‘Simon likes to be under the radar. He doesn’t attend big glamorous Hollywood events. He certainly doesn’t discuss his marriage at all with people.

‘He has had to resign himself to the fact that she would talk. He knew the risks going in. This is the type of artist she is, she wears her heart on her sleeve.’ 

‘They have a very modern-day family dynamic.

‘They’ve been adamant any personal tension should never come ahead of what’s best for Angelo.’

Representatives for Adele and Simon have been contacted by MailOnline for a comment.  

It comes after earlier this week Adele revealed that she walked away from a secret relationship a year after she split from her ex-husband Simon because she associated him with the breakdown of her marriage.  

Speaking to The Face, the singer – who is now dating Rich Paul – said:  ‘It wasn’t right, leaving a marriage and then dating a year after. Even if you feel ready, it’s a gaping, open wound whether you leave or you’re left.’  

She continued: ‘I was unable to pretend that I wasn’t in my own storm… I couldn’t give myself properly. I couldn’t be consistent, and neither could he.   

‘I associate him with the breakdown of my marriage. So therefore, he is part of the storm.

‘And I was just, you know, really honest with him about it, thank God. Otherwise I could’ve found myself in a situation being in a relationship I didn’t want to be in after coming out of one.’ 

Adele is now happily dating the sports agent Rich Paul, 39, after they met at a mutual friends birthday party, became friends, and later started a relationship.  

The singer’s latest candid interview came after it was revealed that her upcoming album would include heartbreaking voice notes exchanged with her son Angelo.

In an emotional track, My Little Love, the singer includes audio recordings from conversations with her nine-year-old in which he attempts to stop her crying amid her 2019 divorce, which is the key subject of the record. 

Adele – who shares Angelo with ex-husband Simon – sings: ‘I’m so sorry if what I’ve done makes you feel sad’. 

In more heart wrenching notes she says ‘Tell me you love me’, to which Angelo replies, ‘I love you, one million per cent. I feel like you like me too.’ 

Adele continues in the tearful voice notes: ‘You know Mummy doesn’t like anyone else like I like you, right? Mummy’s been having a lot of big feelings lately, I’m confused and I don’t know what I’m doing.’ 

In more voice notes to her son she says: ‘I love your dad because he gave you to me…  I’ve had a bad day, I’m very anxious…

‘I feel very paranoid, stressed, and I’m hungover which never helps. I feel like today is the first day since I left him that I actually feel lonely — and I never do. 

‘I just feel really lonely and frightened, and I’m worried I might feel like this a lot.’ 

In Woman Like Me meanwhile, she sung of Simon: ‘Complacency is the worst trait to have, are you crazy? It is so sad a man like you could be so lazy…

‘All you do is complain about decisions you make / How can I help lift you if you refuse to activate?’ 

While Adele features her son on her new album, and dedicated the music to him, she revealed this week that her One Night Only CBS special concert was the first time Angelo had ever seen her perform.
