Adele and her ex-husband Simon Konecki would have to be pretty friendly exes to be neighbours.
More than a year after Adele announced her split from Konecki, a source close to the singer told People the exes are living within walking distance from each other in Los Angeles while co-parenting their seven-year-old son Angelo.
“They are doing what’s best for Angelo,” the source said. “Her son is her world.” The pair are also keeping their divorce on the down-low for the sake of their son.
The Grammy award-winning artist has been spending more time than usual at home due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“She helps Angelo with schoolwork and cooks. She very much enjoys being a stay-at-home mum right now,” a source told MM.
Adele — whose full name is Adele Adkins — and 45-year-old Konecki split in 2019 after three years of marriage. The couple were together for a total of seven years.
The British star, who is currently based in LA, is said to have bought charity entrepreneur Konecki a property near her Beverly Hills home, so they could each be near their son as they co-parent.
“They are both committed to keeping the details as private as possible for the sake of their son,” a source told The Sun. “They are trying to work out their issues.”
“Adele and her partner have separated,” a statement read from the singer’s publicist back in April 2019. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
It’s believed the couple did not sign a prenup before marrying in April 2016.
