Adele did not give fickle support to Simon Konecki


British singer-songwriter Adele, who recently finalised her divorce with Simon Konecki, will not be paying spousal support to her ex-husband.

Adele will share custody of her 8-year-old son and won’t be paying child support to her now-ex-husband Simon Konecki, according to divorce documents obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press.

The former couple has decided to waive “the right to seek or obtain any spousal support from the other party”, and also agreed upon joint custody of their eight-year-old son Angelo, according to US Weekly.

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

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

Adele kept her original legal name, Adele Adkins, during her marriage.

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

The former couple has decided to waive “the right to seek or obtain any spousal support from the other party”, and also agreed upon joint custody of their eight-year-old son Angelo, according to US Weekly.

Adele and Simon started dating in 2012, and got married in 2016. In April 2019, five months after rumours of breaks in their relationship had surfaced in the media, Adele announced that she had filed for divorce with Konecki citing “irreconcilable differences”.

In January this year, the former couple reached a settlement in their divorce, choosing to determine rights to community property and debts through mediation.
