On Saturday, March 4, Adele spoke about her heartbreak during a concert in Brisbane. She said her pain inspired her to write the hit song, Someone Like You. It was during that moment in her concert that she confirmed what she hinted at last month.
It’s finally confirmed that she and her longtime partner, Simon Konecki, are married.
Adele said, “I could see in their eyes as they were listening to it on their headphones that it reminded them of something or someone and that’s what I wanted to remember.”
“How it was I felt at the beginning of the relationship that inspired that record, because as bad as a break up can be, as bitter and horrible and messy as it can be, that feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth, and I am addicted to that feeling,” the singer continued.
The 28 year-old star then revealed, “Obviously I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now. I’ve found my next person. But that feeling, when you first meet someone and everything about you just feels alive for the first time. I wanted to go back to that.”
At the Grammys last month, while accepting her award for Album of the Year for 25, Adele nonchalantly referred to Simon as her “husband,” giving weight to rumors saying that they’d tied the knot secretly.
Adele took home five Grammy awards and said during her acceptance speech, “My husband and my son — you’re the only reason I do it.”
Reports say that the couple got hitched over Christmas, but Adele never talked about the marriage up until Grammys night. Also, the singer was spotted wearing a wedding ring late last year.
However, it’s been recently revealed she married her longtime love just after Christmas in a discreet ceremony.
Adele and Simon have been together since 2011. The pair have a 4 year-old son, Angelo.
“Being in such an amazing relationship with someone that’s so there for me and so loyal and is really part of my core now,” Adele shared in an interview in 2015. “That’s what made me write about everything I’ve ever done, because I’ve got his love.”
Simon is the CEO of a charitable foundation known as Drop4Drop. He is an ex-investment banker who became dismayed by the growing distance between rich and poor. Having that realization, he believed that water was a human right and wanted to look at ways to fix the underprivileged people’s water difficulties.
Also, Drop4Drop is backed by comedian Stephen Fry and by British actor Sid Owen, who has been Simon’s pal for more than 20 years.
Simon was previously married to fashion stylist, Clary Fisher, in 2004 but got divorced in 2008. They have a 5 year-old daughter.
Ultimately, thru singer-songwriter, Ed Sheeran, Simon and Adele got acquainted with each other in 2011. During that time, the songstress was taking a break from her work after a throat surgery. The two hit it off instantly. The couple welcomed their first child together the following year.
