Adele dumped? Yes, of course it's true! We've long known that heartbreak inspired much of the powerful singer's material, but what fans far and wide might be shocked to learn is that Adele was dumped by her boyfriend in favor of another man.
Marc Shapiro's unauthorized Adele biography claims the singer had been dating a mystery man in her late teen years. When the young woman in love poured her heart out to the guy, he dumped her -- explaining that not only was he leaving her for the affections of a male partner, but one of her so-called friends!
That's not all either. The mystery man allegedly confessed to having cheated on the young songstress for four months prior to the explosive breakup. For shame!
Yet, if the gossip about Adele being dumped by her boyfriend and running off with her gay friend is supposed to tarnish the singer's image in some way it's not working. As news of Adele's relationship woes make their way around the world, fans are speaking out in support.
"If Adele wrote that song 'someone like you' about me, I'd go back to her," wrote one Twitter fan Wednesday. Another chimed in, "That awkward moment your ex becomes a famous multi-millionaire singer because you dumped her."
But it can also be noted that being dumped before her 19 album wasn't the last time Adele was a part of some serious relationship drama. When word broke she and boyfriend Simon Konecki were an item the now 24-year-old was the subject of much gossip about being a mistress.
Writing on her official website in January, Adele told fans:
This is the first and last time I will comment on the details of my relationship with Simon. Contrary to reports and headlines in the press today, Simon is divorced and has been for 4 years. Everyone in our lives separately and together wish us nothing but the best, and vice versa. These are the facts. Take care and see you all in February xx
Here's hoping Adele's days of being dumped and relationship drama are long gone -- but let's also hope that being happy and in love doesn't mean she runs out of musical inspiration!
