The artist began a series of concerts at Caesars Palace Coliseum. In four months, she will give eight shows, which attract thousands of fans from all over the world. The long-awaited concerts, postponed for nearly a year, are notable for Adele’s heartfelt communication with her audience between songs. The artist struggles to control her emotions as she reflects on the power of friendship during a candid confession on stage.
The star broke down in tears, urging those in attendance to prioritize friendship over romance. Adele said the help of friends was invaluable to her as she found herself piece by piece following her divorce from 48-year-old businessman Simon Konecki, with whom she is raising ten-year-old son Angelo .
“Relationships fall apart, whether you’re married or not, it’s really difficult and really traumatic. Keep your friends close, because they are better than any man, better than any woman. Your friends are for life,” Adele said.
The 15-time Grammy winner admitted to going to therapy five times a day after splitting from her husband. She said she was seeing a counselor again because she “no longer felt responsible.” The singer wanted to be in top shape for her performances in Las Vegas.
“I was without therapy for several years, but I started having it again. I no longer hold myself responsible for my behavior and what I say. But now I do it because I just want to make sure I fill up every week to make sure I can give it all to you.”
The Oscar-winning actress began dating Simon Konecki in 2011. A year later, the lovers had a son. The couple tied the knot in secret at a concert in Australia in 2017. The singer and businessman later held a private wedding ceremony at their Los Angeles mansion. In April 2019, Adele announced her divorce. The ex-spouses do not comment on his reasons. They tried to maintain civilized relations for the sake of joint upbringing of the child.
