Recently, Adele shut down rumors that her and Paul's relationship was becoming "strained."

"I'm really happy to say that I am performing at the Brits next week!!" she wrote at the time. "I'll also be popping in to see Graham for a chat on the couch while I'm in town too! I'm looking forward to it! Oh, and Rich sends his love," the singer wrote in the caption.

While at the Brits, Adele took home three out of the four awards she'd been nominated for, including Song and Album of the Year.

The singer dedicated her Album of the Year award to her son, Angelo, and ex-husband, Simon Konecki, whom Adele filed for divorce from in 2019 after getting married in 2017.

"This album was all of our journey, not just mine," Adele said, referencing her album '30,' which details her divorce from Konecki.

"I'm very proud of myself for sticking to my guns and putting out an album that was about something so personal to me, 'cuz not many people do stuff like that anymore," the singer continued.

"My son has been so gracious — so gracious and kind and patient with me over the last couple of years … [this award is] for him."
