Adele's proven she's just like us when it comes to Brangelina: utterly shocked that the love story between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has ended.

The 'Skyfall' singer was performing a concert in New York on Tuesday night (20 September) just a few hours after Angelina's lawyer confirmed she had filed for divorce from Brad following two years of marriage.

Entertainment Weekly was the first to note tweets showing how Adele called Brangelina's split "the elephant in the room" and joked her concert was two hours of sad songs so she was dedicating it to the Hollywood couple.

A video uploaded by TMZ showed Adele saying: "Brangelina have broken up. I mean, I don't like gossiping and private lives should be private but I feel like it's the end of the era so I'm dedicating this show to them. Im genuinely sad, I don't know them at all. But I'm shocked."

You're not alone, Adele!

Angelina, 41, shocked us all when she filed divorce papers to end her two-year marriage to Brad Pitt, 52. They had been together for more than a decade and share six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, eight.

The legal papers cite irreconcilable differences and it's been claimed she's seeking full custody of the couple's six children, with Brad having visitation rights.

A statement released by Angelina's lawyer yesterday said: "This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time."

Brad later responded with his own brief statement, simply saying: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids."

They married in August 2014 at their private estate in France.
