Adele is one of the best-selling female artists in pop music history but that does not mean she has not been through some things on her rise to the top. Descending from the UK, the singer has suffered so much heartache and heartbreak in her life that she often uses her personal drama as inspiration behind her biggest songs. Now a new biography gives fans insight into Adele’s past troubled life.
A cruel heartbreak at the age of 18 kicked off her successful career when Adele was inspired to write her debut album 19 about her ill-fated relationship with a bisexual man, according to a new biography about the Grammy Award winning singer.
Just four hours after Adele declared her love to the man who remains a mystery, he cruelly ran off with one of her gay friends. Biographer Marc Shapiro who is known for covering events in young stars life that many fans probably had no idea about penned the unofficial bio Adele: The Biography, which chronicles the 24-year-old singer/songwriter’s childhood in North London as the daughter of a single mother. He pays close attention to the ups and downs of her love life.
Most notably he recounts the incident on her 18th birthday which went on to inspire her debut record.
“One thing we know… Is that it was a first love gone terribly bad. Adele had professed her love and he did the same, she had known he was bisexual but, in the rush of romance, felt they could make it work.”
“Four hours after laying their emotional cards on the table, the boy ran off with one of Adele’s gay friends!”
Adele had previously revealed that she had gone through a rocky relationship that ended when she was 18, but gave no indication about the details of the heartbreak that followed as she explained the meaning behind her debut album “19.”
“Daydreamer is about this boy I was in love with, like proper in love with, he was bi and I couldn’t deal with that. All the things I wanted from my boyfriend, he was never going to be, I get really jealous anyway, so I couldn’t fight with girls and boys,” she wrote on her official website.
Shapiro goes on to write about the love and affection that Adele sought as she enjoyed the attention that could be had by remaining with boys who treated her badly. Apparently, this habit stemmed from the lack of a relationship that the singer had with her alcoholic father.
This in-depth look into the life of Adele will aim to cover everything from her previously mentioned relationships, her bout with a drinking problem as well her rise to fame.
The 24-year-old says she struggled with alcohol abuse as she grappled with her early success, according to the biography.
The Grammy-winner is said to have recounted on incident where she got into such a state on her first tour that she fell off a stool mid-concert and forgetting the words to her own songs.
