Adele explained, “When I was 30 my whole life came crashing down and I had no warning about it.”
She insisted there was no bad blood between the couple and continued, “It just wasn’t… It just didn’t suit me anymore. I didn’t want to end up like many other people I knew.
“I wasn’t miserable, but I would have been miserable if I hadn’t put myself first. But yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that.’
Adele also admitted that she struggled to talk to their son about the couple’s separation, which made her so anxious that her therapist suggested she record herself talking to Angelo so she could remember what had been said. .
She reasoned, “Obviously Simon and I never fought over him or anything like that. Angelo just says, “I don’t get it.” She sighs. I don’t really get it either. There are rules that are made in society about what does and does not happen in marriage and after marriage, but I am a very complex person.’

A source said: ‘They made it very clear that they didn’t want to put lawyers on top of each other, but the process wasn’t exactly easy. The priority was to make sure they got it right through their son Angelo.
“The first thing they agreed on was custody sharing, and since then it’s been about splitting the rest of their marital finances fairly.
“Fortunately, they managed to get there without an explosive public trial, swear words or outrageous claims about each other, and that gives them the best chance of staying on good terms going forward.”
