Adele and Simon Konecki: It's Over!

by at .

Sad news, everyone.

Adele -- beautiful, amazing, insanely talented and beloved Adele -- is getting divorced.

Simon Konecki and Adele

Yes, she and Simon Konecki, her partner for the better part of this decade and her husband of two years, are splitting up.

The news definitely comes out of nowhere, but then again, these two have always been exceedingly private.

They began dating over seven years ago, as we first saw Adele with the philanthropist in January of 2017.

Things moved very fast from there, because in October, they welcomed their first child together, a son they named Angelo.

Remember, they're so private that they didn't even announce the kid's name, we just figured it out when she was seen rocking an "Angelo" necklace.

At some point (seriously, we really know so little about their relationship), they got married.

It's believed this happened sometime in late 2016 or early 2017, because in January of 2017, they were spotted wearing wedding bands.

At the Grammy Awards that February, she referred to him as her husband, and a month later, she finally confirmed during a concert that they were husband and wife.

Adele is so Happy!

"That feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth," she said then, "and I am addicted to that feeling."

"Obviously I can't go through with those feelings because I'm married now," she added. "I've found my next person."

In hindsight, that's definitely a weird comment -- was she admitting that she had been falling for other people?

Also, don't people in such committed relationships refer to their partner as just their "person," not their next person?

Adele Rules!

Well, either way, it's over now.

Adele's rep made a statement, and in it, he confirmed "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 statement concluded.

If you keep up closely with Adele, this news may not come as such a shock.

Last month, she was in New York, partying with Jennifer Lawrence.

And while that alone wouldn't have been a tip-off that something was amiss, the fact that she was also photographed going into a recording studio without her wedding ring was a pretty big sign.

Yep, nobody does breakup music like Adele, and it looks like there's a definite possibility of getting a new song or two soon.

Or maybe even a whole album.

Obviously it's not like we're glad she's getting divorced so we can get some incredible breakup album, but in situations like this, you have to look at the silver lining, right?

Here's hoping Adele and Simon really are able to get along with each other for the sake of their son.

What a sad, sad time.
