Adele trusts ex-husband Simon with her life after their split as he saved her
Adele has come clean about her relationship with her ex-husband Simon Konecki, saying that he "saved her life" despite going their separate ways.
The British hitmaker spoke candidly to Oprah Winfrey about her life, career and relationships in a 'One Night Only' special on CBS where she delighted a star-studded audience such as Lizzo and Gordon Ramsay by performing songs from her latest album 30.
However, when reflecting on the aftermath of her marriage to entrepreneur Konecki, with whom she shares nine year old son Angelo, Adele revealed that he ensured to remain a part of her life.
"I think Simon probably saved my life, to be honest and came at such a moment where the stability that him and Angelo have given me, no-one else would ever been able to give me," the 33 year old explained.
The Easy On Me singer continued: "Especially at that time in my life I was so young and I think I would have got a bit lost in it all of it.
"I could have easily have gone down some dodgy paths and self-destructive by being so overwhelmed by it, and he came in, and he was stable, the most stable person I have ever had in my life up until that point."
Adele noted: "Even now, I trust him with my life. Him and Angelo were angels sent to me, that's how I feel."
The singing superstar, who shared her hurt over missing her son Angelo, married Simon in 2018, but they divorced a year later.
Adele went on to tell Oprah that songs from her new album are inspired by her life, including her failed marriage.
During the chat, Adele discussed the meaning behind her heartbreaking new song Hold On, which has a lyric that reads: "Right now I truly hate being me."
Adele told Oprah: "My friends always would say, 'Hold on' when I would feel like the lyrics in the verse.
"But it was just exhausting trying to keep going with it.
"It's a process. You know, the process of a divorce, the process of being a single parent.
"The process of not seeing your child every single day wasn't really a plan that I had when I became a mum.
"The process of arriving for yourself every day, turning up for yourself every single day and still running a home, running a business."
Adele explained that she felt embarrassed about not making marriage work as she had promised herself that she would always have a strong family unit.
"From a very young age, I promised myself that when I had kids that we will stay together, we would be that united family," she said.
"And I tried for a really, really long time, and then I was so disappointed for my son, I was so disappointed for myself, and I thought I was going to be the one who stops doing those bloody patterns all the time."
