Adele’s new album is expected to take listeners through the story of her divorce from Simon Konecki, and is addressed to their nine-year-old son, Angelo. It is also set to be an album of self-reflection and her relationships to date.

In a candid, two-hour interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on Sunday, Adele said she felt “devastated” and “embarrassed” about her split from Konecki.

She also described the divorce process and “turning up for yourself” as “exhausting”.

Despite the split, the singer said she and Konecki remain on good terms and that she still loves her ex despite no longer being “in love” with him.

The 31-year-old also described how Konecki helped her through fame.

She said: “At that time in my life, I was so young and I think I would have got in all of it. I could easily gone down some dodgy paths and self-destructed from being so overwhelmed by all of it.

“And he came in and was the most stable person I’d ever had in my life up until that point. Even now I trust them with my life.”

She told Winfrey that the pair live opposite each other in Los Angeles and co-parent their son, Angelo.
