Adele is reported to have used mediators to help her and her ex Simon Konecki reach a settlement agreement during their divorce.

The singer apparently enlisted help to manage the terms of her settlement, which was finally filed earlier this month.

The couple split in April 2019 after three years of marriage and will share custody of their son, Angelo.

However, despite having to use mediators, the couple are thought to still be on good terms.

A source revealed to The Sun: "They made it very clear they didn't want to set lawyers on each other but the process hasn't been exactly straightforward all the same.

"The priority was making sure they did right by their son, Angelo.

"The first thing they agreed on was sharing custody, and since then it has been about dividing up the rest of their marital finances fairly."

They added: "Fortunately they have ­managed to get there without an explosive public court case, slanging matches or scandalous claims about each other, and that gives them the best ­possible chance of ­staying on good terms in the future."

Two years are splitting, it was reported last week that Adele and Simon, who is the CEO of charity of Drop4Drop, filed the terms of their divorce settlement with the court on Friday, January 15.

Good luck for the future, both of you!
