Pop singer Adele parts with husband
LONDON (Reuters) – British pop singer Adele and her husband have separated, her representatives said on Saturday.
One of the most successful singer-songwriters of all time, Adele and water charity executive Simon Konecki met in 2011. They had a son a year later, and married in 2016.
“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,” a spokesman for Adele said in a statement.
Adele Adkins, 30, shot to fame in 2008 with her debut album ‘19’, lauded for its combination of soulful vocals and confessional lyrics.
Her last album, ‘25’, released in 2015, broke U.S. and British records by becoming the fastest-selling album of all time. She became the first person in the history of the Grammy awards to win the top three awards twice.
U.S. media reported in March this year that Adele had visited a recording studio in New York, raising speculation that a new album would surface soon.
Singer Adele cancels remainder of world tour with damaged vocal cords
Singer Adele has canceled the last two sell-out shows of her world tour due to take place at London’s Wembley Stadium this weekend after damaging her vocal cords.
Adele, 29, said she went to see a throat doctor on Friday night, who advised her not to perform.
She had already performed two nights to crowds at Wembley, but said that she had been struggling vocally.
“To say I’m heartbroken would be an understatement,” Adele, said on her Twitter page.
One of the biggest selling artists in the world, she said she was so desperate perform that she had even considered miming at the shows.
“I’ve never done it and I cannot in a million years do that to you,” she said. “It wouldn’t be the real me up there.”
Adele said refunds would be available if the shows could not be rescheduled.
The Grammy-award singer has previously had to cancel concerts due to problems with her throat following vocal cord surgery in 2011
