U2 star Adam Clayton and wife Mariana Teixeira de Carvalho split after 10 years together

U2 star Adam Clayton and his wife Mariana Teixeira de Carvalho have ended their marriage following a decade together.

The couple - who are seeking privacy at this time - married in 2013 and share six-year-old, Alba.

A spokesperson for the pair confirmed the split to the Sunday World, noting the couple have ended their relationship amicably, reports the Mirror.

The representative's statement said: "After more than 10 years of marriage, musician Adam Clayton and lawyer Mariana Teixeira de Carvalho have amicably divorced.

"Both will continue to be fully involved in the care of their daughter and they request that the family's privacy be respected."

Adam, aged 64, and Mariana, a lawyer by profession, exchanged vows at a discreet Dublin registry office ceremony, which was followed four years later by the birth of their daughter, announced through a personal ad in the Irish Times: "Adam and Mariana Clayton are delighted to announce the birth of their beautiful baby girl Alba."

Despite their lowkey wedding ceremony, the pair celebrated in style with a star-studded bash at a historic French chateau near Cannes, attended by 150 guests including U2 members Bono, The Edge, and Larry.

Adam - who prefers to keep his personal life under wraps - made a rare public declaration about his wife during the MusiCares MAP Fund event in June 2017.

Reflecting on when he met Mariana, he gushed, "I was in Brazil and I met a lawyer who was smart and beautiful. We started dating. I got married in sobriety to Mariana. I didn't think that would happen. She's never seen me drinking, but she does know me crazy. Thank you, Mariana, for the wonderful life we have together and for making every day more meaningful."

The famed musician isn't unfamiliar with the courting media attention surrounding his star-studded romances, having previously dated supermodel Naomi Campbell back in 1994 leading to an engagement.

However, their relationship didn't prevail over time and they eventually parted ways.

Followingly, Suzie Smith caught Adam's eye in 2006 leading to another proposal.

Away from his personal life, Adam gained notoriety beyond his musical prowess after appearing on Gardeners' World. There, he gave audience members a peek into his immaculately maintained Dublin garden, which he has dutifully curated for thirty long years.

Clayton's majestic outdoor haven, flourishing with a river, over 4,000 trees and serene islands, inevitably drew tons of admiring commentary from viewers on social media. One enraptured fan posted, "Now I love Adam more. I want a holiday in his garden! " Meanwhile, another one gushed, "I wish BBC Two had a like button. Exceptional #gardenersworld tonight. Adam Clayton's garden and story a revelation."
