Adele reveals that she was in a secret relationship before boyfriend Rich Paul

Her long-awaited and very emotional album 30 will be released on Friday.

And Adele revealed this week that she walked away from a secret relationship a year after she walked away from her ex-husband Simon Konecki because she associated him with the breakdown of her marriage.

In a speech to The Face, the singer – who is now dating Rich Paul – said: ‘It was not right to leave a marriage and then date a year later. Even if you feel ready, it’s a gaping, open wound, whether you walk or you’re left behind. ‘

‘I connect him with the breakdown of my marriage’: Adele revealed this week that she walked away from a secret relationship a year after she left her ex-husband Simon Konecki

She continued: ‘I was unable to pretend I was not in my own storm … I could not give myself properly. I could not be consistent, and neither could he.

‘I associate him with the breakdown of my marriage. So that’s why he’s part of the storm.

“And I was just, you know, really honest with him about it, thank God. Otherwise, I could have found myself in a situation where I was in a relationship I did not want to be in after I got out of one. ‘

Adele is now happily dating sports agent Rich Paul, 39, after they met at a mutual friends birthday party, became friends and later started a relationship.

The singer’s latest candid interview is coming after it was revealed that her upcoming album would feature heartbreaking vocal notes exchanged with her son Angelo.

In an emotionally charged track, My Little Love, the singer includes audio recordings from conversations with her nine-year-old, in which he tries to stop her from crying in the middle of her divorce in 2019, which is the album’s key topic.

Adele – who shares Angelo with ex-husband Simon Konecki – sings: ‘I’m so sorry if what I’ve done makes you feel sorry.

In more heartbreaking tones, she says’ Tell me, you love me ‘, to which Angelo replies:’ I love you, a million percent. I feel like you like me too. ‘

Adele continues with the weeping voice notes: ‘You know Mom does not like anyone else as I like you, right? Mom has had a lot of great feelings lately, I’m confused and I do not know what I’m doing. ‘

In several voice notes to her son, she says: ‘I love your father because he gave you to me … I’ve had a bad day, I’m very anxious …

‘I feel very paranoid, stressed and I’m a hangover, which never helps. I feel like today is the first day since I left him that I actually feel lonely – and I never do.

‘I just feel really lonely and scared and I’m scared I can have that much.’

While Adele has her son on her new album and dedicated the music to him, she revealed this week that her One Night Only CBS special concert was the first time Angelo had ever seen her perform.

Hitmaker Someone Like You took to the stage at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles in late October to film the show.

While on stage, she whispered, ‘This is the first time my son has ever seen me perform!

“It’s the absolute honor of my life to have you here tonight, honey,” she added with a smile.

Looking back on that heartwarming moment on Twitter, Adele said she had never been so nervous in my life that her son should see her live for the first time.

She wrote: ‘It was also the first time my son saw me perform and I have never been so nervous in my life !! I hope you like it, tune in tonight at. 20:30 ET / 20:00 PT on CBS x. ‘

The star explained that Angelo had previously attended rehearsals with her when the arena was empty, comparing them to a packed show as they had been watching Taylor Swift together.

“He’s like, ‘So many people come to her shows,’ she recalled with a laugh. ‘But I make him go before they all arrive. It was so sweet and so fun.’

The Rolling in the Deep singer then told Oprah Winfrey in the accompanying interview that after the release of her first single Easy on Me from the new album 30, her son was surprised by her popularity.

She said: ‘There were like a hundred thousand people waiting [and] you had all these likes, ‘she remembered Angelo saying. ‘Then he said,’ People really like you. ‘ ‘

Adele then discussed her hopes for her son’s future with the chat show host, saying she only wants him to be a ‘good and happy person’.

“I do not expect anything from him,” she explained. ‘I do not care what his career is, as long as he is passionate about what it is he is doing and that he is happy.’

In the interview, Adele also revealed that the adjustment to being a single parent and her divorce was a ‘process’ and ‘exhausting’.
