Adele, 34, has opened up about her divorce from charity entrepreneur ex Simon Konecki, 48. The Someone Like You singer, who spoke candidly about her previous relationship in front of the crowd at her Las Vegas residency, reflected on their sad split.

The pop star’s marriage to Simon fell apart in 2019, with the pair finalising their divorce last year.

Adele has described how her split from Simon, with whom she shares one child, really took a toll on her mental health. 

The star is now dating American sports agent Rich Paul, 40, whom she began dating last year.

Reflecting on how her self-perception has changed over time, Adele explained that she has finally stopped “holding herself accountable” for her divorce. 

In an honest discussion with her many fans, the Hello singer admitted that therapy was massively beneficial to her wellbeing and that it has helped her with performing in front of thousands.

Speaking on stage at her Weekends with Adele show at The Colosseum in Caesar’s Palace on Friday night, she revealed: “I started having therapy again because I went a few years without. I needed to start.

“Before, obviously, when I was going through my divorce I was basically having five therapy sessions a day.

“But I stopped holding myself accountable for my own behaviour and the things I would say.

“But now I am doing it because I just want to make sure I’m topping myself up every week to make sure I can give you everything.”

The songstress confessed that performing live often “fills her with dread” and that the idea of touring can leave her stressed. 

However, she went on to express her excitement for her much-anticipated Las Vegas residency, tearfully suggesting she now has the confidence to sing live “for the rest of her life”. 

“And my whole therapy session this week was really interesting. It was about these shows,” she said.

“I always get so emotional. I love making music, but there is something about performing live that actually terrifies me and fills me with dread.

“That is why I am not a big touring artist. I did it last time to prove I could do it. 

“But this experience of being in a room this size, I think I might be a live artist for the rest of my life.”

Back in January, Adele left her fans heartbroken after she took to Instagram to announce she was postponing all her dates at Caesars Palace Colosseum.

 

At the time, the star explained that “half the team” had been struck down with Covid, leaving little time to get everything ready for the performance.

In an emotional apology to her fans, she said: “I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready. I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed. We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can to pull it together in time. We’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and Covid.

“Half my team are down with Covid, they still are. It’s been impossible to finish the show. I can’t give you what I have right now and I’m gutted. I’m sorry it’s so last minute.”

She added: “We’ve been awake for over 30 hours now trying to figure it out and we’ve run out of time. I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed and I’m so sorry to everyone that’s travelled again. I’m really, really sorry. We’re on it, we’re going to reschedule all of the dates.”
