Adele Denies Secret Wedding

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LONDON) -- “Rumour Has It” singer Adele has responded to the rumors that she secretly married boyfriend and baby daddy Simon Konecki.

Adele, who’s pregnant with her first child, tweeted Thursday, “I’m not married….Zzzzzzz.”

Adele's Boyfriend Says Baby Is 'Coming So Soon,' Plans Special 'Push Present'

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LONDON) -- Since Adele announced her pregnancy back in June, she hasn't said anything else on the subject, not even to respond to reports that she's much farther along than we thought, and that the baby is actually due in September.  Well, now her baby daddy has weighed in on the topic.

Speaking to the British paper The Mail on Sunday, Adele's boyfriend Simon Konecki said, "The baby is coming so soon. I’m very excited. Adele is doing well and we can’t wait."

In addition, The Mail on Sunday reports that Konecki has his eye on a special "push present" -- a gift of jewelry to present Adele with in honor of their new arrival.  The paper claims that Konecki wants to purchase a gold Buddha necklace designed by artist and spiritualist Lady Marina Cowdray.  Reportedly, Konecki saw Cowdray wearing the bauble and decided he wanted to get one for Adele.

According to Cowdray, the Buddah embodies "wisdom, knowledge and compassion," and is "a reminder of who we are and who we are not."  The necklace costs about $4,700 dollars.

Adele Posts Angry Retort to Reports About Boyfriend

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LONDON) -- Adele is ticked off about a recent report in a British tabloid claiming her boyfriend Simon Konecki isn’t yet divorced from his wife.

In a note posted on her website, the singer writes, “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.”

She adds, “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.”

That’s a reference to the fact that Adele will be appearing at the Brit Awards next month -- and, likely, the Grammy Awards.

Is Adele 'Rolling' with a New Love?

Kevin Mazur/WireImage(LONDON) -- Adele's album 21 was inspired by a painful breakup, but it appears as though her love life is looking up these days. The British paper The Sun has published photos of the singer embracing -- and in one photo, apparently kissing -- a bearded man the paper identifies as Simon Konecki, the head of the charity Drop4Drop. This particular charity, which works to alleviate the world water crisis, is the one Adele mentioned when she started tweeting late last year. She told fans she'd write her own tweets if 10,000 of them started following Drop4Drop on Twitter, and within 24 hours, they had done so.

In the photos, Adele and Konecki are pictured in Florida, on a sightseeing boat in the Everglades.
