Pals say Adele has told them she feels “free” after filing for divorce from hubby Simon Konecki.

The Hello singer, 31, is said to be “moving on” following her separation from the charity entrepreneur.

She revealed the marriage was over in April – three years after they tied the knot in a secret 2016 ceremony.

And court documents lodged in Los Angeles on Thursday reveal she has now filed for divorce.

A source close to the singer said: “Adele feels free and is moving on with her life. It looks like the divorce will be straightforward at this stage. They both wants what is best for their son.”

After their separation was confirmed, a representative for Adele said: “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly.

“As always, they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”
