Adele dedicates her Album of the Year Award to her ex-husband and their son

scandal 09/02/2022

Singer Adele has taken a moment to thank two people who were inspirational to her latest album '30' at the recent Brit Awards 2022.

Winning the biggest award of the night, the 33-year-old choked up during her Album of the Year speech when she mentioned her 9-year-old son Angelo, and ex-husband Simon Konecki.

“I’d like to dedicate this award to my son and to Simon, his dad. This album was all of our journey, not just mine,” Adele said, holding back tears.

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

My son has been so gracious and kind and patient with me over the last couple of years and it’s for him.

The 'Easy on Me' singer also took a moment to thank her producer behind her album '30'.

“Someone that was absolutely integral to this album is producer of the year this year, his name is Inflo. He really changed my life, not just with my music but he really helped me in so many ways. Flo, I love you — this is for you as well,” she concluded.

The music icon also picked up two other major awards that night, Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for “Easy On Me.”
