Adele has the biggest selling UK album of the 21st century and has captivated a multitude of fans with her heart-wrenching, soulful pop ballads.
Lover boy is actually 14 years older than the 23-year-old British goddess, and has already experienced marriage and fatherhood to a five-year old baby girl.
What the media is failing to underline is Simon's divorce with fashion stylist Clary Fisher.
Adele took matters into her own hands and blogged a feisty statement, insisting the world mind their own business. In true fed-up fashion she said:
This is the first and last time I will comment on the details of my relationship with Simon. Contrary to reports and headlines in the press today, Simon is divorced and has been for 4 years. Everyone in our lives separately and together wish us nothing but the best, and vice versa. These are the facts. Take care and see you all in February xx
We wish the Brit-pop diva the best come February in London, as she's nominated for three Brit Awards: British Solo Artist, British Album and British Single.
In Martin's voice - you go girl!
