The 15th Grammy winner told Oprah how she felt embarrassed when she knew her divorce from entrepreneur Simon Konecki was inevitable, but added that Konecki was the most stable person she had known and he had ‘saved her life.’
‘I take marriage very seriously and it seems like I don’t…That’s what it should be. When we have kids, we stay together, and I tried. I was so disappointed for my son, I was so disappointed for myself,’ she said.
‘Nothing as scary as what I’ve been through in the past two years behind closed doors,’ she added.
The singer said she was in a shooting for a ‘boogie magazine,’ when, for the first time, she said out loud what she had been feeling for a long period of time.
‘I just said it. I am really not happy. I’m not living, I’m just plugging along,’ Adele said she told a friend before filing for divorce in 2019.
