Adele has shared that she was in a secret relationship a year after she broke up with her ex-husband Simon Konecki.

However, the 33-year-old singer ended the romance because she associated the mystery man with the breakdown of her marriage. She is now happily dating US sports agent Rich Paul.

Speaking to The Face about her previous relationship, Adele revealed: ‘It wasn’t right, leaving a marriage and then dating a year after.

‘Even if you feel ready, it’s a gaping, open wound whether you leave or you’re left.’ 

‘I was unable to pretend that I wasn’t in my own storm. I couldn’t give myself properly. I couldn’t be consistent, and neither could he.’

Adele continued to the publication: ‘I associate him with the breakdown of my marriage. So therefore, he is part of the storm.

‘And I was just, you know, really honest with him about it, thank God. Otherwise, I could’ve found myself in a situation being in a relationship I didn’t want to be in after coming out of one.’ 

Adele announced her split from charity boss Konecki in April 2019.

Their divorce was finalised in March 2021, with the former couple sharing custody of their eight-year-old son Angelo.

The hitmaker is now seeing Paul, who is the founder of management company Klutch Sports Group, which represents high-profile basketball stars including LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and John Wall.

Adele previously told Rolling Stone that she had reconnected with Paul for the most ‘incredible, open-hearted and easiest’ relationship she had been in.

‘I’m not frightened of loneliness anymore,’ she added.

Adele’s new album 30 arrives tomorrow, November 19 and she has dedicated it to her son as a way of showing him ‘who I am’.

‘The whole album is not about him, it’s about me and I just wanted him to hear me talking madly deeply about who I am and how I feel,’ she told Oprah Winfrey.

‘I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to have that conversation with him in real life, so he can go and listen to it.’
