Adele and Simon Konecki love story

The songs of Grammy-winning superstar Adele are well known for making one cry. However, the inspiration behind her music is the opposite of a relationship gone wrong. 

After making her debut in 2008, the British singer said hello to a life of motherhood and forever after love with then boyfriend, Konecki.

In an interview with 60 Minutes Australia, the 30-year-old spoke honestly about her long-time romance with Konecki, their son and how family life motivated her. Adele explained:

Being in such an amazing relationship with someone that's so there for me and so loyal and is really part of my core now. That's what made me write about everything I've ever done, because I've got his love.

When Adele was asked if her relationship is the 'ultimate love story', she admitted saying:

I guess it is, I guess it is. I know that sounds a bit like I'm trying to write a Hollywood movie. But it's only because of him and because of our kid and stuff that I'm all right.

Say it isn't so

Sadly, after seven years, Adele and her husband have separated. The split came as a surprise to many.

Information obtained from The Associated Press says Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh, representatives of the singer confirmed the report on Friday in a statement.

The statement made it clear that the two plan to co-parent their 6-year-old son Angelo together:

Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.

The British superstar, who has always been private about her relationship, confirmed she was married in her acceptance speech when she won album of the year at the 2017 Grammys.

Adele and the entrepreneur secretly got married after five years of dating in 2016. 

A source claimed to E! News why the couple decided to call it quits: 

They had a lot in common early on, but eventually they just grew apart. She became a bigger and bigger star, and he was okay [with] being in the background, but as she got bigger and had massive tours and intense schedules, they just grew apart.
