Adele Got Candid About Her Ex-Husband and New Boyfriend in Oprah Interview

Adele is not going easy on us, baby. 

The pop icon revealed a lot about her love life to Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired during her One Night Only special on CBS, in anticipation of her new album, 30. Specifically, Adele opened up about her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, and her new boyfriend, sports agent Rich Paul. 

“I think Simon probably saved my life, to be honest with you,” Adele told Winfrey, per Page Six. “He came at such a moment, where the stability that him and Angelo have given me, no one else would ever have been able to give me. Especially at that time, I was so young and I just, I think I would have got a bit lost in all of it.”

She continued, “I could have easily gone down some dodgy paths, you know? And sort of self-destructed from being overwhelmed by all of it. He came in and was stable. The most stable person I’ve ever had in my life up until that point. Even now, I trust him with my life.”

Adele’s new album, 30, is about—in her own words—“divorce, baby, divorce.” But it’s not all sad. Adele has come out of her split from Konecki happier and loving herself more than ever. She’s now in a relationship with sports agent Rich Paul, which was rumored over the summer and became Instagram-official in September. Adele told Winfrey that her relationship with Paul is the first time she’s “loved myself and been open to loving and being loved by someone else.”

“He’s hilarious and very smart,” Adele said. “You know, he’s very, very smart. It’s quite incredible watching him do what he does. And just the easiness of [the relationship]. It’s just, it’s been very smooth.”

One Night Only wasn’t filled with just sad songs and sad discussions about relationships. Oprah Winfrey and Lizzo sang along to Adele’s hit “Hello” during the concert, and there’s an adorable video to prove it.
