Joint custody of son, no spousal help in Adele divorce | Leisure

LOS ANGELES – Adele will share custody of her 8-year-old son and not pay child support to her now ex-husband, Simon Konecki, according to divorce papers the Associated Press received on Wednesday.

The couple separated in August 2019 and Adele filed for divorce the following month. A judge in Los Angeles finalized the divorce last week.

According to the documents, 32-year-old Adele and 46-year-old Konecki used mediation to amicably reach the terms of the split. Both waived the right to seek spousal support and both consented to the legal and physical custody of their son Angelo, who was born in 2012. The newspapers say they will try to solve any problems without litigation.

Adele kept her original legal name, Adele Adkins, throughout their marriage.

The British singing superstar married Konecki, co-founder of Life Water, an environmentally friendly bottled water brand, in May 2018. But she referred to him as “my husband” during a 2017 Grammy acceptance speech, and the two had been a couple for several years when they got married.
