Sensational singer-songwriter Adele has hit out at critics by reaffirming her new flame Simon Konecki is happily divorced and is not pursuing an extra-marital affair with the vocalist.

The 23-year-old took to her official blog to assure fans she is not likely to be the kind of woman to hook up with a man who is already spoken for.

On January 17th she blogged: “Contrary to reports and headlines in the press today, Simon is divorced and has been for four years.”

Adding that everyone in their lives supports their relationship, Adele said this was the final time she would comment on her relationship with Konecki.

The performer was recently spotted dabbling in some mid-week shopping at Waitrose, with the Daily Mail picturing her in a full-black ensemble and gold earrings.

Her gold earrings were only barely visible, however, as a large furry hat sat atop her head, with her face fresh and makeup-free.
