The online world was shocked following the news of singer-songwriter Adele’s split from her husband of three years, entrepreneur Simon Konecki. The Grammy-award-winning singer, who is known for keeping her relationships private, had gotten married to Konecki in 2016. She confirmed the same during her 2017 Grammy’s acceptance speech for ‘Album of the Year’.

The news of the split was confirmed on Friday, when Adele’s representative made a statement to CNN. It read "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 couple have a son, Angelo, born in 2012, who they plan to raise together.

Adele’s representative has also mentioned that she remains committed to maintaining a loving partnership to raise their son.

The news comes months ahead of the slated release of Adele’s fourth album ‘Adele’, which she plans to release by the end of 2019.

Twitterati responded to the news with mixed reactions. While on one hand her fans were upset about the split, the prospect of being blessed with great new music from the songstress who is widely known for her breakup anthems provided a source of guilty pleasure.

Konecki is the CEO of DROP4DROP, a social entrepreneurship venture that works on promoting global access to clean water.
