Adele’s Divorce Could Cost Her $180 Million
First Halle Berry, then Mary J. Blige, now you can (potentially) add Adele to the list of famous boss women who’ve had to pay an ungodly amount of money to their ex-spouse during a divorce. Over the weekend, a rep for the Rolling In The Deep singer confirmed that her and her husband of seven years, Simon Konecki, are splitting and reports surfaced soon after that Adele could have to pay up big time.
Various U.K. outlets are reporting that Adele and Simon never signed a prenup when they wed in 2011 — which means that Konecki could be entitled to half of the singers earnings. That’s a lot of bread…approximately $182 million to be exact. But the 30-year old songstress could potentially walk away with her full $275 million net worth if she’s plays her cards right.
According to lawyer Emma Gill, the courts could deem the marriage as “medium-length”, based on their son Angelo’s 2012 birth, which would ultimately work in Adele’s favor.
“If it was a short marriage, Adele would probably walk off into the sunset with her £150 million ($275 million) fortune intact.
Because it’s pushed into that medium-length bracket, and some of her successes are squarely within her relationship with Simon, they might be liable to be shared — in other words, Simon could be entitled to half.”
Even if Simon was with Adele shooting in the gym, $180 million is a lot of money to dish out for a divorce. Thoughts?
