Adele is currently going through a $180 million divorce from her husband, Simon Konecki, after three years of marriage. And, a new report claims that before the split, Konecki sent secret texts to his first wife, stylist Clary Collicutt.
According to The Sun, last Christmas Konecki secretly texted Collicutt after he and Adele had started to live separate lives. However, the former couple didn’t announce that their marriage was over until April 19th.

“Clary was shocked to get a message from Simon wishing her happy Christmas, especially because the news he had split from Adele wasn’t out there, but now it all makes sense,” says an insider. “He messaged again on her birthday in February, and wanted to meet for coffee in Hove, but she hasn’t told anyone if she has met him yet.”
The source added that Collicutt and Konecki have a long history. At first, they were neighbors before getting together, and they were a couple for more than four years before he met the 30-year-old superstar. The insider explained that Collicutt and Konecki have the same friends, and it seemed their relationship was solid. Collicutt adored him, so it was a shock to everyone when they split.
Konecki, a charity entrepreneur, moved to Los Angeles with Adele after his divorce from Collicutt, and she moved on and remarried. She launched a successful business as a personal stylist, and in her free time, she loves to practice yoga and focus on environmental sustainability.
The insider revealed that Collicutt’s life is completely different from the one he was living in Los Angeles, and Konecki finds this “refreshing.”
The former couple’s divorce is already final, and cameras have already caught her with a bearded mystery man that looked a lot like her ex-husband. Another insider claims that Adele has said behind closed doors that she is divorced and trying to find her new normal. While she hasn’t said much publicly about the split, in private, she has been open and honest about the divorce.
The Someone Like You singer is telling her friends that “the marriage is done and dusted.”
It’s possible that Konecki will get half of Adele’s massive fortune because they didn’t have a prenup. The former couple continues to co-parent their 6-year-old son, Angelo.

Adele recently hinted on Instagram about a possible new album. Along with four black-and-white pics of herself smiling with friends, she wrote in the caption that “30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you.”
The singer has a history of naming her albums after her age, which always come a year after she records them. For example, her debut album 19 came out when she was 20, and her massive hit album 25 came out when she was 26. So, it would make perfect sense for 30 to drop now that Adele is 31.
