Adele reveals she felt "devastated and embarrassed" over the breakdown of her marriage

ADELE has revealed she felt "devastated and embarrassed" when news about the breakdown of her marriage to Simon Konecki emerged in 2019.

The singer, 33, opened up to Rolling Stone about the "tsunami of emotions" that left her bed bound with anxiety after her divorce.


The highly anticipated album 30 will arrive on November 19 and will explore the separation and her relationship with son Angelo.

The Brit Award and Grammy winner said she had "never really felt present" in a happy home with her family.

"It made me really sad," she told the American music magazine.

"Then having so many people that I don't know know that I didn't make that work … it f****** devastated me. I was embarrassed.

"No one made me feel embarrassed, but you feel like you didn't do a good job."

According to Rolling Stone she suffered "an intense few weeks of bed-bound anxiety" following the split, until the day of her 31st birthday in May 2019.

"I felt quite hopeful," Adele said.

"It was the first time I felt I'd had a really nice evening and I was OK being in the house and going to bed on my own.

"I was not excited, but I was looking forward to the next day."

She added that the following day she woke up and "saw this tsunami of emotions" coming towards her.

"I was like, 'this is going to be really f****** up-and-down'," she said.

Speaking about distracting herself from the emotional difficulty, the Rolling In The Deep singer said she threw herself "head first" into anything to soothe her anxiety, including travelling "anywhere where there's meant to be brilliant energy".

Reflecting on her weight loss and healthier lifestyle she said "(I thought) if I can transform my strength and my body like this, surely I can do it to my emotions and to my brain and to my inner well-being. That was what drove me.

"It just coincided with all of the emotional work that I was doing with myself as a visual for it, basically."
