U.K. tabloid The Sun wrote on Saturday (Dec. 27) that Adele and Konecki, who share a 2-year-old son together, are no longer living together. Instead of ignoring it, Adele took to her Twitter account on Sunday to clear the air about the alleged breakup.

“Just wanted to wish everyone happy holidays & all the best for 2015! PS Simon & I are still very much together, don't believe what you readx,” Adele wrote in her first tweet since late October.

This isn’t the first time Adele has had to squash rumors involving her relationship with Konecki. In January 2012, she tweeted about rumors that Konecki was still married to his ex.

"This is the first and last time I will comment on the details of my relationship with Simon," Adele wrote. "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. Take care and see you all in February xx."

Meanwhile, Adele’s mega-selling 2011 album, 21, surpassed the 11 million sales mark in the U.S. in October, according to Nielsen Soundscan. She is currently working on her third album, which is not due until at least next year.
