Adele ‘keen to date an American man following split from husband… and will release a heartbreak album by the end of the year’


She announced her split from husband Simon Konecki after eight years together on Friday and has now Adele is reportedly keen to date an American man.

The superstar singer, 30, is said to be ‘excited’ at the prospect of new romance and wants friends to help her find a match, The Sun reports.

The Mirror has also claimed she is planning on releasing a heartbreak album by the end of the year and has been writing new material for some time.

A source The Sun: ‘She’s been excited speaking to men again. She is very much in the courting phase.

‘She’s attracted to other men and accepts it is over with Simon for good this time — there is no going back.

‘She has asked friends to look out for potential dates. She doesn’t want to rush or get into something too serious too soon.’

Moreover, The Mirror says ‘she is throwing herself back into work to get over the break-up. She has been working on new material for a while.

‘She has already had meetings with her record label, Sony, in London about her progress. London producers have been approached about working with her.

‘They are hoping the album will be released by Christmas.’

MailOnline has contacted Adele’s representatives for comment.

It comes as the singer reportedly plans to base herself in London to be close to her mother and so her six-year-old son Angelo can have a British education.

The Tottenham-born singer, who has an estimated fortune of £145 million, flew into the UK three weeks ago to spend time with her mum, Penny Adkins.

In their separation statement, the pair said they were ‘committed’ to raising their son together ‘lovingly’ and are believed to have split amicably.

Adele, who is thought to be recording a new album in New York, has been with Konecki, who is 14 years her senior, since October 2011.

Despite this, rumours about their rocky relationship have plagued the couple for years.

In 2014, it was claimed that Konecki had moved out of their London home and into his bachelor pad in Brighton.

Adele eventually responded to the reports on Twitter, writing: ‘Just wanted to wish everyone happy holidays & all the best for 2015! PS Simon & I are still very much together, don’t believe what you read x.’

However, the pair were photographed in June that year having an argument outside London celebrity hotspot Chiltern Firehouse.

And it was revealed the couple began preparing for their split months ago, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The singer and Konecki, an Eton-educated philanthropist, began separating their business affairs in February.

Legal documents show Adele, 30, signed over a £500,000 house in Los Angeles to Konecki, whose charity water business is based in the city.

A statement released by her PR team early yesterday announced that Adele and former investment banker Konecki, 44 – who she once described as her ‘perfect man’ – were no longer together.

‘Adele and her partner have separated,’ the statement said. ‘They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.’

The Someone Like You star signed over the £500,000 property in the middle-class Van Nuys suburb, a half-hour drive from the couple’s £10 million Beverly Hills mansion, two months ago.

Legal papers show the property changed hands under an ‘intrafamily transfer’, which gifted Konecki the house.

The property is the registered base of Mammoth Water Resources, a company owned by Konecki who also runs a charity called Drop4Drop.

During their marriage, they split their time between their gated Beverly Hills home, a £40 million property in Kensington, West London, and another home in Brighton.

The couple were last seen together backstage at an Elton John concert in LA on January 25.

Sources insist the separation is ‘unlikely’ to turn nasty.

‘Simon’s not like that. He’s got his own money. His only concern now is that he and Adele remain the best parents they can be to Angelo,’ one insider told The Mail on Sunday.

It is understood that Adele is being comforted by her friends, including Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence with whom she was spotted partying in a New York gay bar in March.

Highly secretive about her romance with Konecki, Adele only confirmed the pair had married in 2016 when she referred to him as her ‘husband’ on stage at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

During a tearful Album of the Year acceptance speech, she said: ‘My husband, my son, you’re the only reason I do it.’

In a handful of interviews, Adele has gushed about her love for Konecki who she has credited with helping her recover from vocal cord surgery in 2011.

‘He’s wonderful and he’s proud of me but he doesn’t care about what I do or what other people think,’ she once said.

‘He looks after me. I don’t think I would have gotten through the recovery for my surgery if it hadn’t been for him.’

More recently, the singer spoke of her longing to expand her family.

‘My womb is starting to ache a little bit,’ she said. ‘It’s like, ‘Baby, baby, baby. Need a baby.’ I’m not pregnant. I won’t get pregnant until the end of the tour.’

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

Social media erupted at the news of Adele’s separation from her husband with many fans rejoicing that the split may inspire her to complete her fourth album – the singer’s songs of heartbreak are a hallmark of her multi-million selling 19, 21 and 25 albums.

‘Adele and her husband just separated. Music charts, get ready for the world’s greatest breakup album ever… again! #Adele #divorce,’ one fan wrote on Twitter.
