She said: ‘Thank you, again the company I’m in really is phenomenal. Thanks to everyone I work with. But I want to dedicate this to my son. And his dad. Because it’s about them. 

‘I’m really proud of myself for sticking to my guns and putting out something so personal. It’s not something people do anymore. My son has been so gracious and patient with me over recent years. So it’s for him.’

Adele also set tongues wagging when she arrived on the red carpet at the music awards ceremony wearing a huge diamond ring on her engagement finger.

Following her split from Simon, Adele has been dating sports agent Rich Paul and recently hit back at speculation there are issues in their relationship.

The rock on Adele’s finger appeared to confirm that things are solid between the couple, who went public with their relationship last summer.

It was reported that part of the reason Adele has postponed her Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace was due to problems in her relationship, as sources cited emotional phonecalls with Rich as part of the reason for the delay.

A source at the Vegas rehearsals previously told Page Six late that the singer often made sobbing calls to her boyfriend that interrupted practice.

The source, who was connected to the Caesars Palace management team, said: ‘Adele’s been crying and couldn’t get through a single full rehearsal for the past month. 

‘Just constantly on the phone with Rich… loudly shouting and sobbing. She has barely rehearsed because she is constantly in the middle of an emotional shootout.’

However Adele shut down speculation last week when she shared a smiling snap of herself alongside the caption confirming her appearance at the BRITs, which ended: ‘Rich sends his love’.

Last October, Adele spoke candidly about her 2019 divorce from her ex and admited their split was ‘overdue.’

The former couple announced they were going their separate ways in April 2019, with Adele filing court documents five months later.

Speaking to Heart Radio’s Amanda Holden and Jamie Theakston at the time, the award-winning songstress was asked about her divorce – which inspired her No.1 single Easy On Me.

Speaking to promote her first single in five years, Adele was asked by Breakfast presenter Jamie about her ‘life-changing decisions’ over the past few years.

‘There will be a lot of people listening who have got things in their life that they’re not too happy about, you did something about it. You made some big, life-changing decisions, how important was that to you?’ Jamie asked the superstar.

‘It was overdue,’ Adele replied. ‘It was exhausting, it was really hard work but I was able to take the time that I needed, which isn’t a given for everyone, I’m very aware of that.’

‘The more and more you put it off, the worse and worse it gets and I had been putting it off anyway for years before… now I am chilled as anything. So I’d say it’s worth it, you know treading through all of that poo is worth it.’

‘You have to put on your waders don’t you?’ Amanda commented. ‘One hundred percent. Or you’ve just got to jump in head first,’ the singer quipped in return.

Speaking about the release of another deeply personal album, Adele added that she’s ‘done a lot of learning over the past few years, more than ever, and there is a reason I am one of the most complicated and complex people I’ve known in my life.’

‘And I feel like I’m a little bit closer to understanding why so that’s what my side is. I have huge amount of feelings as well, it doesn’t mean they go away.’

The candid interview also saw Adele admitting she was homesick for the UK after spending the past year or so in the US, where she lives with her son Angelo, nine.

‘Talking to British people is making me incredible homesick I’m not gonna lie. It’s actually f**king me off a little,’ she declared. 

After becoming a foreign exchange broker, Simon invested in his self built Broker association and then built Drop4Drop, a charity which funds sustainable clean water solutions to countries that need it most.   

It has been reported that the pair, who were married for three years and together for eight, were keen to avoid a nasty ‘Hollywood style’ divorce which would ‘drag on for years.’

Sources previously insisted the separation was ‘unlikely’ to turn nasty. An insider told the Mail On Sunday: ‘Simon’s not like that. He’s got his own money after investing in his self built Broker association.

‘His only concern now is that he and Adele remain the best parents they can be to Angelo.’

In fact, it was revealed in May 2019, that Adele had splashed out on a £8.53million Beverly Hills home just feet away from Simon’s pad in order that they can co-parent their son.

Adele began dating Simon in 2011, and in October 2012 they welcomed their son Angelo Adkins, before later marrying in secret in 2016.

Simon was previously married to stylist Clary Fisher. They have a ten-year-old daughter and split in 2010. He met Adele the following year, after reportedly being introduced by Ed Sheeran.

The former couple announced they were going their separate ways in April 2019, with Adele filing court documents five months later.

Adele’s representative said in a statement in April 2019: ‘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.’

At the time they announced their separation, a source close to the couple claimed that their relationship had changed rapidly into a platonic arrangement.

They told US Weekly at the time: ‘Their relationship evolved and they became more like friends than lovers. They realised the romantic love was no longer there. They’re disappointed, but it just didn’t work out.’  

The pair share custody of their son Angelo, but ‘financial, sales or other confidential business information’ regarding the proceedings were not ‘publicly available.’

Adele and Simon had split their time between a gated mansion in Los Angeles, a £40million ($44million) property in Kensington and another home in Brighton.

Back in 2012 she bought a mews house in Kensington, for £5.65million ($7m) before purchasing the house next door for £5.38million ($6.6m) with plans to knock the two through in order to give her extra space.

In 2019, Adele raked in nearly £23,000-a-day despite not releasing a record or going on a tour. She made a staggering £8.6million profit last year after taxes, which works out to £23,719 a day.

According to The Sun, she has two companies which look after her royalties and album sales. The first is Melted Stone Ltd which makes a net profit of £483,546 while Melted Stone Publishing Ltd makes £8,173,994.
