Adele and Oprah discuss divorce and weight loss.


Adele was embarrassed by her divorce

«I’ve been obsessed with a nuclear family my whole life because I never came from one,» said the singer, whose father left home when she was just two years old.

«From a very young age [I] promised myself that, when I had kids, we’d stay together. And I tried for a really, really long time.»

Now 33, Adele said she first realised her marriage was crumbling when she took a personality test in a glossy magazine.

One of the questions asked, «what’s something that no-one would ever know about you?», and she blurted out to her friends: «I’m really not happy. I’m not living, I’m just plodding along.»

«They all gasped,» she recalled. «From there, I was like ‘What am I doing? What am I doing it for?'»

Although Adele was together with Konecki for eight years, she has previously said the marriage and separation both took place in 2018.

«I take marriage very seriously… and it seems like I don’t now,» she said, remorsefully. «Almost like I disrespected it by getting married and then divorced so quickly. I’m embarrassed because it was so quick.»
