Adele's heartbreak has been the driving force behind some of her biggest hits in the past – but her split from Simon Konecki is off-limits.

Two years after calling it quits, the 'Hello' hitmaker has reached a deal with her ex-husband agreeing to one bizarre detail.

The 32-year-old songstress - who split from Konecki in April 2019 - has agreed to not pen songs about her ex in order to protect the couple's son Angelo.

"Heartbreak has helped Adele shift records over the years but this split is quite different," an unnamed source revealed.

"They're both aware their son Angelo should be protected and that's why Adele has agreed not to sing about their relationship.

"Her new album will have a different sound anyway, so it hasn't bothered her too much that Simon quietly expected her to keep their relationship out of her music."

It has been six years since the Oscar-winning singer released her last album, 25. It was awarded Grammy Awards for best album of the year plus the gong for the best pop vocal album.

The album has gone on to sell a staggering 23 million copies worldwide, off the back of hit singles Send My Love (To Your New Lover) and Hello.
