Adele has reached a divorce settlement with Simon Konecki almost two years after they announced their separation.
Us Weekly reported on Thursday that the singer, 32, and the CEO of charity of Drop4Drop, 46, reached an agreement after the pair represented themselves while working out the division of their assets.
The pair filed the terms of their divorce settlement with the court on Friday, January 15.

Although Adele and Simon have finished their work to finalize the divorce, the marriage won’t officially be ended until the judge signs off on the paperwork.
The pair announced they were going their separate ways in April 2019, with Adele filing court documents five months later.
They opted to use mediation to work out the details of how their properties and debts would be split up.
Adele began dating Simon in 2011, and in October 2012 they welcomed their son Angelo Adkins, now eight years old, before later marrying in secret in 2016.
Notoriously private, Adele did address her marriage at the 2017 Grammys, where she confirmed they had married by acknowledging Simon as her husband.
After she collected the Album of the Year gong, she said: ‘Grammys, I appreciate it. The Academy, I love you. My manager, my husband and my son you’re the only reason I do it.’

Adele had revealed a wish to have more babies back in 2016. The Rolling in the Deep singer told fans at a Nashville audience: ‘My son is about to turn four very, very soon.
‘I’m starting to get very emotional about it because I feel like once they turn four, they’re not really your actual baby anymore.
‘So my womb is starting to ache a little bit. It’s like, ‘Baby, baby, baby. Need a baby, need a baby’. I’m not pregnant. I won’t get pregnant until the end of the tour.’
It had been a change of heart for the superstar because earlier that year she had told people she didn’t want any more children.
During a gig in Minnesota in July, she said: ‘I don’t think I can have another child. I mean, I can. But I don’t think I want two.’

Adele’s representative said in a statement in April 2019: ‘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.’
At the time they announced their separation, a source close to the couple told Us Weekly that their relationship had changed rapidly into a platonic arrangement.
‘Their relationship evolved and they became more like friends than lovers,’ they explained at the time. ‘They realized the romantic love was no longer there. They’re disappointed, but it just didn’t work out.’
Since her separation, Adele has revealed her dramatic 100lb weight loss during rare public outings.

In October, the Rolling In The Deep singer flaunted her enviable figure when she hosted Saturday Night Live, though she left the musical performances to H.E.R. because she didn’t think she could both act and sing on the episode.
Meanwhile, it was previously claimed that the Skyfall hitmaker has ‘been pouring her heart and soul’ into her comeback album and found music ‘like therapy’ after the end of her marriage.
A source said: ‘Adele is pouring her heart and soul into this record, including how she feels post-divorce
‘She’s been a fan of Raphael since she was a teenager and loves his back catalogue. She wants her next album to be full of soul, with a more eclectic sound.’
Her third studio album, 25, was released in 2015, and fans have eagerly awaited new music in the five years since.
She was later linked to British musician Skepta, 38, real name Joseph Junior Adenuga Jr – who became a father in 2018.
And in October 2020, it was reported that things were ‘heating up’ between Adele and the star, one year after the musicians were first linked.
But, Adele shut down the rumours she was dating the rapper as she told fans she’s a ‘(single) cat lady,’ in an Instagram caption.
Alongside a photograph of herself on Saturday Night Live, the Hello songstress first praised all those involved in her successful hosting gig, before ensuring she not-so-subtly confirmed her relationship status.
‘Lindsay my sister for life, Maya my comedy and Mama hero! Plus the so up for it audiences at both the dress rehearsal and live show!
‘I did it for the joy of it and I hope you got some from it too! Good luck with the election America I love you so much. Look after each other and go easy on yourselves. Happy Halloween!
‘I’m going back to my cave now to be the (single) cat lady that I am! Peace out til next year.’
Her not-so-subtle words came a month after Adele and the Grime artist, who she is good friends with, were spotted having a wild night out in east London the month before.
