Adele has revealed that she was "so embarrassed" by her divorce in a new interview, but couldn't bear to make her marriage work any longer.
In a chat with Vogue, she spoke about her split from Simon Knoecki in 2019 and said that her marriage "wasn't working for me anymore".
Their divorce was finalised in March this year after Adele initiated the break-up, leaving them to now co-parent their eight-year-old son, Angelo.
Speaking about the break up for the first time, she told the publication: "I wasn’t miserable-miserable, but I would have been miserable had I not put myself first. But, yeah, nothing bad happened or anything like that.”
The 33-year-old was "really embarrassed" by not being able to make something work.
She continued: “We’ve been trained as women to keep trying, even by the movies we watched when we were little. At the time it broke my heart, but I actually find it so interesting now. How we’re told to suck it up.”
Speaking about making her upcoming album, she said she made it for her son as she wanted to explain to him who she is and why she "voluntarily chose to dismantle his entire life" in the pursuit of her happiness.
Adele added: “It made him really unhappy sometimes. And that’s a real wound for me that I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to heal.”
The superstar also revealed that said her young son often asks her lots of innocent questions including why she and Konecki can’t be together anymore.
In a bid to co-parent in the best way possible, Konecki bought a house over the road from Adele in LA so that “nothing changes” for their son.
However, Adele has moved on in her love life and has recently confirmed rumours that she is dating sports agent Rich Paul.
She describes him as a "great" and "f**king funny" guy, and loves that he doesn't get stressed out by all of her fame and the constant attention that comes along with it.
The artist said that she did date other men between her divorce and Richie, but those flames were daunted and annoyed by the limelight.
