ADELE'S new relationship has the support of "everyone" in her life.

The 'Someone Like You' hitmaker - who has been getting close to Simon Konecki, the boss of water charity Drop4Drop in recent weeks - has hit out at speculation her new lover is still married, explaining he has been divorced from stylist Clary Fisher, the mother of his five-year-old daughter, "for four years".

Writing on her blog, 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."

Meanwhile, the 23-year-old singer - who was forced to cancel a string of concerts in the US and England last year after undergoing surgery on her vocal cords for a benign polyp - has been banned from eating her beloved curry by doctors as she battles to get her voice back for a performance at February's BRIT Awards.

An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Adele loves curries. She keeps getting curry cravings, especially when she walks within sniffing distance of an Indian restaurant, but she's staying strong."
