Adele has opened up about the reason she decided to get a divorce from her ex-husband, Simon Konecki. 

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the ‘Easy On Me’ singer revealed that she made the decision when reading a ‘bougie magazine’.

Recalling the moment with her friends, she explained: “We were all answering these questions in this very bougie magazine, and it was something like, ‘What’s something that no one would ever know about you?’.

“And I just said it in front of three of my friends, I was like, ‘I’m really not happy. I’m not living, I’m just plodding along’.”

She continued: “And I remember a lyric that I wrote that I put on a song on ’25,’ which is ‘I want to live and not just survive’. I definitely felt like that. And it was when I admitted to my own friends who thought I was really happy that actually, I’m really unhappy, and they were all aghast.

“I felt like it was sort of from there that I was like, what am I doing it for?”

The 33-year-old then admitted to Winfrey that she had been ‘obsessed with the nuclear family’ for a long time.

She confessed: “I’ve been obsessed with the nuclear family my whole life because I never came from one.

“In all these movies and all these books, when you grow up reading them, that’s what it should be. I just, from a very young age, promised myself that when I had kids, that we’d stay together. We would be that united family. And I tried for a really, really long time.”

She added: “I was just so disappointed for my son. I was so disappointed for myself, and I thought I was gonna be the one that stopped doing those bloody patterns all the time.”
