Adele and her partner of eight years, Simon Konecki, have ended their relationship.

In a statement to the Associated Press, a spokesperson for Adele said:

“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.”

The Hello singer and Konecki were together for eight years and married for three.

They share one son, six-year-old Angelo.

Adele and Simon were always intensely private about their relationship, but in a 2015 interview with 60 Minutes she credited her husband with giving her the love and support that allowed her to be her most creative self.

“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. That’s what made me write about everything I’ve ever done, because I’ve got his love.”

The bombshell break-up follows the sad news that Michelle Williams has split from her musician husband Phil Elverum.

Crying, me? No, I’m not crying! My eyes are just a little sweaty today. That’s all.
