Adele might be engaged to her boyfriend of only a few months, Simon Konecki

You know I’m worried about Adele’s boyfriend, right? He’s 14 years older than her. He’s rich – he’s old money. He’s well-educated. He runs his own non-profit. He’s a big bear of a man. And he’s allegedly still married to his first wife, although the situation may be more complicated than that. First, the British tabloids thought Simon Konecki was still married, but estranged from his wife, having been separated for several years, before he even met Adele. When that version was widely circulated, Adele took to her blog and said that Simon is not currently in a state of matrimony, and that he’s been divorced for four years. That all went down before Adele’s total Grammy-and-media domination in February. Simon was her date to the Grammys, and she’s talked about her love openly in several interviews. Maybe it’s all legit and no-drama. But my radar is still up with this guy.

Anyway, Adele is now a big enough celebrity that she gets her own crazy tabloid stories. I’m sure this story is just based on Adele’s previous loved-up interviews, but I’m still concerned. Did Simon propose? Is this dude really still married?

Adele was sporting a 10.57 carat De Beers ring at the Oscars and now sources says it’s her engagement ring and she’s tying the knot this year! The 23-year-old singer is reportedly head-over-heels in love with her boyfriend Simon Konecki and friends of the couple say Adele is itching to walk down the aisle!

“Adele and Simon feel like they’re already engaged,” a source tells Life & Style. “And she wants to get married this year. She’s been longing to settle down with a man who will treat her well. She feels Simon is the one — and doesn’t see the point in waiting.”

Adele purchased a sprawling $9.5 million country estate in West Sussex, England and that’s reportedly where she’ll hold a laid back ceremony.

“She’s not the type of girl who wants a massive church wedding, hundreds of guests and photo rights sold and tons of security,” the source continues. “She would want everyone to let their hair down and have fun without anything too posh.”

Although they haven’t been dating very long the source believes Simon, 36, and Adele are the perfect match!

“He is much more mature than any other guy she’s dated. He has life experience.”

If I came out of reading Adele’s Vogue interview having learned one thing about her, it’s that she LOVES older daddy-types. The girl has some daddy issues – not that it’s a huge deal, lots of girls do, and especially at that age too. So it’s not shocking to think that Adele will end up settling down with an older man who will “take care of her” to a certain extent. But what is shocking is that she’s still so… willing to give herself over to someone after only a few months of dating. This girl has had some rough breakups, and we’ve heard all about it. Still, she puts herself out there. She wears her heart on her sleeve. God, I hope this guy isn’t a d-bag.

Also: Haha, Adele’s alleged engaged ring is WAY bigger than Jessica Biel’s.

    Glad he’s wealthy in his own right and not looking to mine her fame bucks.

    That said: good lord, every time I see a picture of her I get eye makeup envy all over again. Seriously — she has the most “made-for-makeup” eyelids I’ve ever seen and she always looks absolutely PERFECT.

    I’m on the Taylor-Swift-ish side of things with no eyelid and man, I ENVY this girl’s impeccable face. Seriously — check out that liner.

    • marlee says:

      I agree…. I would kill for those eyelids. My best friend is currently trying to perfect what she calls “Adele eyes.” So far, it’s been hit or miss. Mainly miss.

    • lucy2 says:

      I always think the same thing! Her eye makeup is always killer, and just perfectly suits her face.

    • gg says:

      Girl I hear ya – I am on the Leeann Rimes overhanging brow train myself. When I wear false eyelashes most of them are hidden underneath. If I attempt eyeliner I look like a hardass biker chick. It’s grim.

  2. Happy21 says:

    No Adele No!!

    Not that I think that this guy is a d-bag but its too soon and you’d have thought she would have learned from her previous boyfriend and his boots that stomped all over her heart!

    “Adele was sporting a 10.57 carat De Beers ring at the Oscars (…).”
    Was she even at the Oscars?

  4. Ron says:

    If they break up it means another great album though…..

  5. Sue L. says:

    No comments other than noting that those Brit awards are butt ugly!

    • Beatrix says:

      HA! I didn’t even realize that those were award trophies until you pointed it out, I thought she was just blatantly sponsoring something. HA!

    • gg says:

      No kiddn – I thought they were bowling pins.

    • TruthTella says:

      Usually they’re silver and look much better, They did a new design this year for the Jubilee etc though…
      The Silver is way better tbh.

  6. Rita says:

    I love Adele but let’s have a little perspective. Shouldn’t we be a bit concerned for the man who marries a woman with “significant daddy issues”.

    • Beatrix says:

      Seriously? A lot of women have what are to be considered ‘daddy issues’ – does this mean that they are not worthy of marriage or that they are so damaged that it then becomes their fault and men are tainted for marrying them? What short-sighted perspective. People can be damaged but also live their lives as experienced, learned and cautious people worth loving.

      • gg says:

        I would only be concerned for the woman in that instance – it leads them to the wrong men for the wrong reasons, from what I’ve seen.

  7. LeeLoo says:

    I really worry about her with the older men. My experience with an older man was an awful relationship filled with domestic violence. If this article is true, I worry that if she moves fast she is going to wind up getting hurt in more ways than one. I hope that this isn’t the case and they are just deeply in love but so many alarms are going off in my head after reading this. Let’s just hope these alarms are due to me projecting my own experience in this situation.

    Also, doing Adele eyes is easy. If you have the right pair of fake eyelashes and a good liquid eyeliner brush.

    • gg says:

      …, the right kind of eyelids, a steady hand, and a really good sit-down vanity, because it can take some time.

      • LeeLoo says:

        You can do it on any set of eyelids. I used to work for Sephora. It’s not that hard to do but you are correct in being able to sit down and do it at a sitting Vanity and having a steady hand.

  8. Toot says:

    I know he has his own money, but I hope Adele gets a prenup if this is true.

    Also, she looks old as hell for 23.

  9. lucy2 says:

    I don’t know how seriously anyone can take jewelry worn to an event like the Oscars, where most of it is on loan (I don’t recall seeing she was there).

  10. Whatever says:

    Adele was at the Oscars? Where? Anyways..if she’s engaged..good luck. She’s young, but maybe wants to settle down with her bear man. Bears keep a woman warm in the winter, and shades them in the summer.

  11. gg says:

    “Adele was sporting a 10.57 carat De Beers ring”

    HOLEY GUACAMOLE! How do you lift your arm with a chunk like that? Adele, honey, don’t get married so fast – it always ends quickly in tears.

  12. gg says:

    I am scared for her about this.

  13. Kosmos says:

    I think she’s mature enough and knows what she’s doing and it’s going to be okay…I am totally happy for her and her man, may they get married and have a good life together. None of the other things matter if they are comfortable with each other. She’s got a totally hot career at a young age and she’s set, and now she’s got her man and that’s set, so how perfect can all of that be? No one can predict what the future holds anyway.

  14. die elepha beth says:

    All the best, Adele!
    let’s hope this is another step to an “Adele for All Occasion” boxset.

    We’ve got the Breakup Anthems, the sort that we put when we need a good cry.
    Now for the Wedding/Anniversary/Generally-in-Love Anthems, the sort that we put when we want to go smushy-nostalgic, dance under the stars with our SO, remember the happy times, or need a mood lift.


    HER EYES! Crazy how she makes it look easy.

  15. Mark says:

    Wait he’s 14 years younger than her? isn’t that illegal?!
