The reports come amid claims Adele has been on a series of dates with a lookalike of her ex during her time in New York City, according to The Sun.

A source told the publication: ‘Adele is a strong woman and is determined to get on with her life, like any normal person who is getting over a marriage break-up.

‘She has developed a real soft spot for American guys since living in LA and had a kiss with a very handsome gentleman in a New York bar. He had a big beard like Simon, but it was tidier and more groomed.

‘They’re getting to know each other better but Adele is by no means looking for anything serious.’

The bold claims come after it was reported that Adele and Simon had been ‘living separate lives for years’ after news of their shock split emerged.

Adele, who met the charity entrepreneur in 2011 and married him in secret in 2016, said the pair were committed to raising their son Angelo together ‘lovingly’. 

The singer’s representatives said: ‘Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy.’

Her spokespeople added that the star would be making no further comment on the matter. Adele and Simon tied the knot sometime in 2016, though they managed to keep the secret wedding under wraps until the following year.

The singer confirmed the union on-stage as she picked up a Best Album Award at the 2017 Grammys.

During an emotional acceptance speech, she said: ‘I’m married! My husband, my son, you’re the only reason I do it.’
