British singer, Adele and her estranged husband Simon Konecki who both recently announced their shock split after three years of marriage will reportedly be heading for a £145 million divorce battle.
According to The Mirror, Adele and Simon are said to have made the decision to go their separate ways before Christmas.
Rumours over the state of their marriage began in February after charity entrepreneur Simon, 45, showed up to this year’s Brit Awards without the singer, 30, by his side.
A source told the website: ‘The Brits were confirmation in a way. Everyone was hoping Adele would come but she stayed away. Things had already broken down for a while.
The source continued: ‘There were whispers running up to the Brits that Adele and Simon’s relationship was over, but Simon was in such a good mood at the party, everyone hoped it wasn’t true,’ said the friend.
The former couple – who share son Angelo, six, are now said to be gearing up for a multi-million-pound divorce which could see Simon entitled to up to half of the Tottenham-born hitmaker’s £145m fortune.
They are understood not to have signed a pre-nup agreement.
