The "Someone Like You" hitmaker filed for divorce back in September 2019, citing irreconcilable differences — and while fans were quick to assume that the breakup could inspire Adele to pen another album of heartbreak songs, she’s decided not to talk about Konecki in her upcoming project.
“Heartbreak has helped Adele shift records over the years but this split is quite different,” a source revealed.
“They’re both aware their son Angelo should be protected and that’s why Adele has agreed not to sing about their relationship.
"Her new album will have a different sound anyway, so it hasn’t bothered her too much that Simon quietly expected her to keep their relationship out of her music.”
The ex-couple reached a divorce settlement earlier this month and are said to be sharing joint custody of their 8-year-old son, Angelo Adkins.
As the source already noted, Adele prefers her privacy when it comes to her personal life, which is why she’s choosing not to bring any further attention to her spit with Konecki, particularly since he still plays an important role in her life.
After all, he's still the father of her child.
The couple separated in April 2019, the same month PEOPLE asserted how Adele was adamant that she and Konecki remain on good terms for the sake of their son.
“I just can’t see her divorce getting messy because she’s so careful when it comes to her son. She’s always five steps ahead in terms of how a decision will affect him," an insider said.
“Adele’s son is everything to her. Her whole life revolves around him,” an insider close to the "Send My Love" chart-topper continued. “I just can’t see her divorce getting messy because she’s so careful when it comes to her son. She’s always five steps ahead in terms of how a decision will affect him.”
The news outlet further claimed that Adele’s booming music career had definitely played a part in the pair’s split, insisting that while Konecki wasn’t jealous of his ex’s success, they eventually found themselves no longer being as close as they once were.
"They had a lot in common early on, but eventually they just grew apart. She became a bigger and bigger star, and he was okay [with] being in the background, but as she got bigger and had massive tours and intense schedules, they just grew apart.”
"Their marriage was clearly working for a very long time," that insider continued. "Whenever she was out at big openings and special events, he was usually with her, and they looked really just happy together and in love. They were into the marriage pretty much until they decided this just isn't working anymore."
