An insider spills that Adele was very taken with his charm (which clearly doesn’t include his name). “It’s easy to see why,” says the source. “He’s a really popular guy, the life and soul of the party, and he’s a musician as well.”
In fact, they met through the South London art scene after she had already produced several hits. The Grammy-winning singer has claimed they “grew apart” over time, but insiders believe there’s more to the story. Apparently, her now-ex wasn’t “the kind of guy you can tie down,” and his involvement with a Burberry model was what really brought about the end.
Although it was painful for her at the time, Adele now admits that the break-up changed her life. By channeling her pain into 21, she was able to forgive him — and write one hell of an album. Plus, it couldn’t have hurt that she moved on with her current boyfriend/baby daddy, Simon Konecki.
You know what they say: If life gives you a breakup, make a Grammy-winning album.
