All you need to know about Adele’s husband Simon Konecki after split
After three years of marriage, Grammy Award winning singer Adele has announced that she has split from her husband Simon Konecki.
They were long-term lovers before that and Simon is the father of Adele's five-year-old son Angelo.
Their relationship has been kept reasonably quiet so this is all you need to know about the man that has been by Adele's side as she conquered the world of music.
Where was Simon Konecki born and where did he grow up?
Simon Konecki was born in New York on April 17, 1974.
He moved with his family to London when he was 10 years old and spent his school days at Eton, alongside Bear Grylls and Tom Parker-Bowles.
Simon's parents, Rosemary and Andrew, live in Boca Raton in Florida, while he shares a home with Adele in Los Angeles.
What does Simon Konecki do?
Simon has been responsible for setting up charities but before that he was a director of EBS, a division of trading giant Icap.
He then went on to manage teams of senior brokers at Lehman Brothers before he decided to make a massive change in his working life.
Following a desire to make a difference to the world, Simon co-founded Life Water with his friend Lucas White.
It was an eco-friendly brand of bottled water that was based in the UK.
From there, Simon set up the charity Drop4Drop, which is campaigning to provide clean water in third world countries.
How did Adele and Simon Konecki meet?
It was January 2012 when Simon and Adele were first spotted together, as they holidayed in Florida.
Rumour has it that Ed Sheeran played cupid and brought the pair together as Adele recovered from throat surgery in 2011.
Ed has denied this though and claims he had "nothing to do with Adele meeting her boyfriend."
Adele had previously stated that having someone in her life 'distracted her from what she should be doing' but it seems they hit it off so well, Simon was here to stay.
The couple had their first child, son Angelo, in 2012.
Simon Konecki's previous love-life and marriage details
Adele was not Simon's first wife and it is thought that the reason for his first marriage to fall apart was that he had met and fallen in love with Adele.
The singer has since denied this and said that she believed he was divorced when they first got together up.
Before that though, Simon was married to stylist Clary Fisher from 2004 to 2008.
He has a nine-year-old daughter with Clary.
