Adele‘s long road toward ending her marriage is nearly complete now.
The 32-year-old diva has reached an agreement on her divorce settlement with her CEO ex-husband Simon Konecki, 46, Us Weekly reported on Thursday.
The former couple, who represented themselves, filed the terms of their divorce settlement with the court on Friday, January 15.

Although Adele and Simon have finished their work to finalize the divorce, the marriage won’t officially be ended until the judge signs off on the paperwork.
The pair announced they were going their separate ways in April 2019, with Adele filing court documents five months later.
They opted to use mediation to work out the details of how their properties and debts would be split up.
Adele began dating Simon in 2011, and in October 2012 they welcomed their son Angelo Adkins, now eight years old, before later marrying in secret in 2016.
Notoriously private, Adele did address her marriage at the 2017 Grammys, where she confirmed they had married by acknowledging Simon as her husband.
After she collected the Album of the Year gong, she said: ‘Grammys, I appreciate it. The Academy, I love you. My manager, my husband and my son you’re the only reason I do it.’
The Hello singer filed for divorce in September 2019.

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 told Us Weekly that their relationship had changed rapidly into a platonic arrangement.
‘Their relationship evolved and they became more like friends than lovers,’ they explained at the time. ‘They realized the romantic love was no longer there. They’re disappointed, but it just didn’t work out.’
Since her separation, Adele has revealed her dramatic 100lb weight loss during rare public outings.

In October, the Rolling In The Deep singer flaunted her enviable figure when she hosted Saturday Night Live, though she left the musical performances to H.E.R. because she didn’t think she could both act and sing on the episode.
During the episode, Adele mentioned that she was still working on her next album.
Her third studio album, 25, was released in 2015, and fans have eagerly awaited new music in the five years since.
Adele was rumored last year to be dating the British rapper Skepta.
