In a statement to the Associated Press released yesterday, the singer's representatives confirmed the shock separation, highlighting the couples commitment to protecting their son.

The pair had been together five years before they married in secret in 2016. As per usual, the couple asked for privacy during this hard time and wouldn't be commenting on it any further. Adele confirmed the news in March of the same year by announcing her engagement during a concert in Brisbane.

She spoke out while picking up album of the year during an emotional acceptance speech, where she referenced her young family. The couple later welcomed a son, Angelo, on October 19, 2012.

Adele and Simon had been in a relationship for over 7 years and were together since the last 3 years.

Coming on the heels of reports of Michelle William's divorce this morning, it looks like break up season is underway in Hollywood.

Adele, 30, and Simon, 45, began dating in 2011 after reportedly being introduced by pop singer Ed Sheehan.

Four years later, Adele released her third album 25, featuring the global hits Hello and Send My Love (To Your New Lover).

"All of my relationships are more important to me than any tour I'll ever do".

In a rare interview with Vogue in 2016, Adele opened up about life as a parent and her bond with Simon. "Obviously, I can't go through with those feelings because I'm married now".
