“Remember I am embarrassed. This is very embarrassing,” she added.
However, she admitted: “It wasn’t very long.”
Speaking about reaching a milestone birthday, Adele looked back on how her life took an unexpected turn.
“When I was 30, my entire life fell apart and I had no warning of it,” she told British Vogue in her first interview in five years.
Addressing the break up, Adele said: “We kept it to ourselves for a very long time”, before revealing that she still trusts her ex-husband “with her life”, adding: “I f**ked up. It didn’t work.”
