Adele has revealed that she had a secret romance after splitting from her husband, Simon Konecki.
The 33-year-old singer – who is now happily dating Rich Paul – has revealed she walked away from a secret relationship a year after she split from Simon Konecki.
She shared: “I wasn’t dating anyone. There was someone that I have loved – not been in love with, but been so fond of, and have been for years – but I was unable to pretend that I wasn’t in my own storm.
“I couldn’t give myself properly. I couldn’t be consistent, and neither could he. It wasn’t right, leaving a marriage and then dating a year after. Even if you feel ready, it’s a gaping, open wound whether you leave or you’re left.
“So it was more that this person was asking for me to throw myself into it. And I couldn’t because I was still recovering from the breakdown of my marriage.”
The Grammy-winning star explained that she came to associate her secret boyfriend with the collapse of her marriage.
Adele – who has Angelo, nine, with Simon – told THE FACE magazine: “I associate him with the breakdown of my marriage. So therefore, he is part of the storm. And I was just, you know, really honest with him about it, thank God. Otherwise, I could’ve found myself in a situation being in a relationship I didn’t want to be in after coming out of one.”
Meanwhile, Adele recently admitted that she hates her celebrity status.
The singer is one of the world’s best-selling artists, but she doesn’t enjoy the fame and attention that’s come her way over the last decade.
Adele – who is poised to release her long-awaited new album, ’30’ – shared: “I think it’s hilarious that I’m an artist for my f****** job. But celebrity comes with it, and I’m not out for that.
“I don’t like being a celebrity at all … and this is my story, and I feel like it’s me taking back my narrative.”
The new issue of THE FACE is on sale now.
