Adele hosts ‘divorce party’ at her Las Vegas show following ‘traumatic’ marital breakdown

The British diva shed tears over her divorce from Simon Konecki during her recent Weekends with Adele appearance, after helping a fan in the crowd to mark her own marriage separation.

Adele is in the second month of her first-ever concert residency, which will run every Friday and Saturday at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum through March 25. The sold-out event was scheduled to begin in January 2022, however, it was postponed at the last minute owing to COVID-19-related difficulties.

Adele revealed in July that the glamorous residency had been rescheduled for November, saying she was “ecstatic” to share the encouraging news after calling the postponement the “worst moment” of her career.

Weekends with Adele has seen the Tottenham native perform many new tracks from her highly anticipated 30 albums, including Easy on Me and My Little Love, as well as favorites from her past albums such as Hello and Turning Tables. Her live performances are known to be extremely emotional, with spectators being driven to tears by her strong vocals and profound lyrics.

Adele grew snuffly on Friday after performing her 2011 smash song, Someone Like You. Adele was keen to share her own story of sadness with her 4000 guests after finding that a fan in the crowd was celebrating their divorce with 13 friends.

“I know all about broken hearts,” she said, likely referring to her split from ex-husband Simon Konecki. Adele’s divorce from the charity CEO was finalized in 2021, two years after the couple separated. She has since found love with US sports agent, Rich Paul, and continues to co-parent her 10-year-old son, Angelo, with Simon.

“I got a bit emotional earlier, now I’m really crying. I have tears running down my cheeks.” She then confessed that her fan’s ‘divorce party’ moved her, calling relationship breakdowns “traumatic.”

“You bringing all your friends is so moving to me,” she said. “Relationships falling apart, whether you’re married or not, it’s really difficult – it’s really traumatic.” Adele also spoke up about her mental health struggles on stage, telling the audience that she was undergoing ‘five therapy sessions a day’ during her divorce.

She has recently resumed weekly counseling after a “few years” of not receiving any treatment. When she “stopped holding myself accountable for my own actions and the things I would say,” the Rolling in the Deep singer knew she needed to restart the process.

“Now I am doing it because I just want to make sure I’m topping myself up every week to make sure I can give you everything,” she added.
