Piers Morgan has taken multiple jabs at Adele for supposedly exploiting her “son’s pain” in a bid to sell more albums.
Her upcoming album 30, due to release on Friday, delves into the singer’s struggles after divorcing her husband Simon Konecki in 2019. It also explores her relationship with her nine-year-old son, Angelo.
According to reports, in the song My Little Love, Angelo can be heard trying to stop his mum from crying.
“I’m so sorry if what I’ve done makes you feel sad,” she sings before saying to her son, “tell me you love me.” He replies: “I love you, one million per cent. I feel like you like me too.”
Well now Morgan has chimed in and branded the Easy on Me singer ”shameful”, adding that her “behaviour is straight from the Meghan and Harry playbook, right down to invading her own privacy to America’s foremost TV therapist, Oprah Winfrey” (a comparison that another Mail columnist made earlier this week).
Noting that he actually likes Adele, he said in his MailOnline column: “Has she given a moment’s thought to how Angelo might feel when he grows up to have had his agonizing conversations with his sobbing mum about her decision to dump his dad broadcast to the world?”
He added that “she’s crossed a line by exposing her young son’s innermost feelings to public scrutiny in such a soul-baring, intimate way.”
“And worse, she’s done it for attention, money, and sales. Sorry, Adele – but I find that shameful, and given all your pleas for privacy, horribly hypocritical.”
