The ‘Easy on Me’ singer finalized her divorce from husband Simon Konecki in March 2021
The “Easy on Me” songstress, 33, recently opened up about the difficulties she had settling into her new role as a superstar single mom amid her divorce from Simon Konecki – whom she said lives across the street from her in Beverly Hills and routinely contributes to the school pick-up and drop-off for their 9-year-old son, Angelo.
“We do normal, normal things on the weekends,” Adele told Rolling Stone of the time she spends with her child. “I’ll take him to the parties, all of that.”
Such wasn’t the case and Adele found herself bedbound and binge-watching iconic episodes of “The Sopranos.”
“I was like, ‘This is going to be really f—ing up-and-down,’” she said.
“They humanized me because I had avoided talking to anyone that was ever famous in any capacity, because I was like, ‘Well, I’m not famous.’ I’m very British like that,” Adele said. “We never spoke about work, which was amazing, because most of the time when I catch up with someone, they want to know all about my work, and I’m like, ‘I don’t want to talk about that. Can we talk about something else? I’m knackered.'”
The singer said that before she and Paul became official in the eyes of the public, she even endured some blind dates that never materialized past just introductory phases.
“I lasted five seconds,” Adele quipped to the outlet about dating in Los Angeles.
You can’t set me up on a f—ing blind date!” she exuded. “I’m like, ‘How’s that going to work?’ There’ll be paparazzi outside and someone will call [gossip site] Deuxmoi, or whatever it’s f—ing called! It ain’t happening,”
The statement is one Adele appeared to also iterate on her song “Oh My God” from her album, “30,” where she opened up about the uneasiness of presenting herself to people simply due to her celebrity status.
Adele also recently posed for a high-fashion cover spread and spoke about the dramatic transformation she undertook starting in the early moments of 2020 on her way to dropping some 100 pounds through sheer exercise and discipline.
In March 2021, she finalized her divorce from Konecki, two years after the pair announced they split.
