It is sometimes difficult to explain everything to children, especially adult problems. Adele found herself confronted with a delicate situation during her divorce: to make her son, Angelo, understand that she would no longer live with his father.
Divorce is a difficult ordeal to face. Having a child to tell makes it even more difficult. Adele, in the spotlight again since the release of her new album 30, had to give explanations to his 9-year-old son. In April 2019, the famous singer separated from Simon Konecki, father of her child. After a long procedure, the two ex-spouses finally divorced this year. In an interview with the magazine Vogue, the Briton spoke about her relationship with her son: “He asks me so many simple questions that I can’t answer, because I don’t know the answer.”
Regarding the separation of his two parents, little Angelo has a simple solution: that they continue to live together. Unfortunately, it is not as easy as a child thinks it is. And when the latter asks Adele why she no longer loves her father, the interpreter of Hello has its answer: “I love your father. But I’m not in love.” A particularly delicate mission for a young mother: “I can’t make a nine year old understand that”, she told the magazine. Through his songs, the British artist hopes to convey the message to his son in a more poetic way: “I wanted to explain to him through this record, when he is 20 or 30 years old, who I am”, she added.
His divorce at the origin of his transformation
2021 has been a very important year for Adele. Not only is this marked by the release of his long-awaited new album, but not that. It is also the year of his impressive physical transformation. Partly due to her divorce. “I noticed that I was not anxious when I was at the gym, so this became my moment”, she explained during her interview with Oprah Winfrey, broadcast this Friday, December 3 on TMC in One Night with Adele. Luckily for Angelo, his parents aren’t on bad terms. Although they no longer love each other, Adele and Simon Konecki retain a deep respect for each other, especially for the well-being of their son.
