Adele’s Multi-Million Net Worth Rumored to Be at Stake in Divorce: Here’s What We Actually Know
Rumor has it Adele owes her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, a lot of money amid their multi-million dollar divorce settlement.
According to The Sun, the couple, who split up in April 2019, are going to share custody of their seven-year-old child Angelo and are "committed to keeping the details [of their divorce] as private as possible for the sake of their son."
The news outlet also noted that "financial, sales or other confidential business information” will remain private, which is why fans have been speculating what this means for the "Hello" hitmaker's considerable fortune.
“Hollywood divorces can drag on for years and become extremely ugly. Adele and Simon clearly don’t want that,” a source told the publication. "They are trying to work out their issues."
Though we can't confirm how much Adele owes her ex, here's what we do know.

A divorce court in Los Angeles has granted that the details of the couple’s split will remain completely private and that anyone involved in the case (lawyers, etc.) will need to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
Adele reportedly didn't sign a prenup
The Sun alleges that the two didn’t sign a prenuptial agreement ahead of their marriage in 2016, so Adele supposedly could wind up having to give Konecki half of her fortune. However, it's not known for sure whether or not a prenup exists.
Here's what the internet is saying
