But it now looks like this heartbreak minstrel, Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, MBE, is a lot less scared of heartbreak these days. The 28 year old pop sensation has just publicly confirmed years of speculation that she is married.
The English singer has been in a long-term relationship with Simon Konecki, a former financier who founded drop4drop, a charity that presses for global access to clean drinking water.
The couple have a four-year-old son, Angelo. Adele has been coy about whether or not they are married. But on Sunday at a concert in Brisbane, Australia she confirmed their status as she introduced “Someone Like You,” her breakthrough 2011 hit written about the lingering pain of a breakup with a previous boyfriend.
“That feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth,” she said, according to a fan’s video posted online.
“And I am addicted to that feeling. Obviously, I can’t go through with those feelings because I’m married now,” she added, to a smattering of cheers.
Attentive fans at last month’s Grammy Awards also heard Adele thanking “my husband and my son – you’re the only reason I do it.” Her representative declined at the time to say whether she had been confirming her marriage to Konecki.
