Speaking to Rolling Stone Magazine, she said: "It made me really sad. Then having so many people that I don't know KNOW that I didn't make that work ... it f****** devastated me.


"I was embarrassed. No one made me feel embarrassed, but you feel like didn't do a good job."

The singer said that she didn't feel like herself by the end of their relationship, adding: "I didn't really know myself. I thought I did."

The split led her to focus on herself, working out more in the gym and getting into fitness, to look after her mental health too.

Driving her more knowing that her emotions and mentality was benefitting from the gym, she also worked on her upcoming album as a way of healing too.


Adele is now dating sports agent Rich Paul and has spoken about how she never felt completely present in her other relationships, making her never want to invest her time into it.
