Early Life Details
Adele Laurie Blue Adkins was born on May 5, 1988, in Tottenham, London. She is best known by her stage name, Adele, which is a single word. Her father left when she was two, so her mother, Penny Adkins, raised her. They moved to Brighton on the south coast of England when she was nine years old. In 1999, they moved back to London.
She got her diploma from the BRIT School for Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon in 2006. Leona Lewis and Jessie J, two other singers, were also in her class. While she was in school, her main goal was to work in the A&R side of the music business. She wasn’t as interested in starting her own singing career. But as part of a class project, she had already recorded a three-song demo. A friend put the demo on Myspace, where it became very popular. Richard Russell from XL Recordings contacted her after seeing her online, and she signed with them in September 2006.

Adele Personal Life
Adele got married to Simon Konecki in 2016, after five years of dating. Together, they have one son, who was born in 2012. After 7 years together, they announced in April 2019 that they would no longer be together. In April 2020, it came out that Adele and Simon do not have a prenuptial agreement and that Adele could be on the hook for a very large settlement if something goes wrong. During their marriage, the state of California in the United States was where they legally lived most of the time. In California, a person whose marriage has ended is entitled to half of the income and assets that were made during the marriage.
We think that Adele made about $200 million before taxes while they were married. During their marriage, they also built up a pretty valuable portfolio of real estate. Simon will have a legal right to half of the portfolio’s value or some other deal. In June 2016, the newlyweds spent $9.5 million on a home in Beverly Hills. Adele bought a new home in Beverly Hills for $10.65 million in May 2019, a month after she and her husband said they were breaking up.
Adele asked a Los Angeles court on April 6, 2020, to keep the details of her divorce private.
“Hometown Glory” was Adele’s first big hit. It came out in October 2007. In 2008, her first studio album, “19,” was released to great reviews and sales. Early in 2009, the RIAA gave the album a gold rating, and by July of that year, it had sold 2.2 million copies around the world. At the 51st Grammy Awards in February 2009, she also won Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
Adele’s second studio album, “21,” came out in early 2011, and it reached number one in over 30 countries. Popular songs like “Someone Like You” and “Rolling in the Deep” came from the album, and both of them topped the charts in more than one country. “21” was so popular that by December 2011, it had sold more than 3.4 million copies in the UK alone. At the time, it was the best-selling album of the 21st century, beating out “Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse. Adele won all of the music awards that year. At the 2011 American Music Awards, she won three awards, and at the 2012 Grammy Awards, she won six awards, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year.
Adele’s third studio album, “25,” came out in November 2015, after a short break from performing during which she still worked on music. With 17.4 million copies sold, it was the best-selling book in the world in 2015. She went on tour for the first time since 2011 in 2016. Over 10 million people tried to buy tickets for the North American leg of the tour, but only 750,000 were available. Her first three studio albums all had titles that were based on her age at the time she made them. She has said that she probably won’t do this with her next album, though.
Aside from her studio albums, Adele has also written the theme song for “Skyfall,” the 23rd James Bond movie. The song, which is also called “Skyfall,” has sold more than 5 million copies around the world. It also won Adele a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song, an Academy Award for Best Original Song, and a Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media. Adele has sold over 100 million records all over the world.
Adele’s main home for many years was a mansion in West Sussex, England, that cost $11 million. She tried to sell the house for $11 million in 2016, but no one was interested. She also has a big house in Beverly Hills, which she bought for $9.5 million in 2016. Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Lawrence, Zoe Saldana, and Nicole Richie are her next-door neighbors in LA. As we’ve already said, Adele bought a new house in Beverly Hills for $10.65 million a month after she and her husband said they were getting a divorce.
Adele is said to have bought Sylvester Stallone’s Beverly Park mansion for $58 million in December 2021.
