Adele dedicates Brits 2022 Album of the Year win to ex-husband Simon Konecki and son Angelo

Adele dedicated her Album of the Year win at the Brit Awards to her ex-husband Simon Konecki and their son, Independent reports.

According to the report, accepting her third award of the night from Idris Elba, she started off by saying, “I’d like to dedicate this award to my son”, before beginning to well up as the crowd cheered and applauded.

30 is her first album since splitting from ex-husband Simon Konecki, so fans may have been surprised to hear the British artist dedicate the prize to him. The “Easy on Me” singer said: “And to Simon, his dad, this is all our journey, not just mine.”

She added: “I’m very proud of myself for sticking to my guns and putting out an album that is about something so personal to me because not many people do stuff like that anymore.”
