Cheeky! She was seen grabbing her bust and pulling a silly face
The two-hour special featured the pop songstress’ first new material in six years, with an insider claiming CBS has paid ‘at least $5million, but perhaps as much as $7million’ to debut the interview.
During the personal chat with Winfrey, Adele admitted that her ex-husband Simon Konecki ‘saved her life’ because he gave her ‘stability’ after she found herself on a ‘self-destructive path.’
The singer, 33, who split from the charity mogul in 2019 after just over a year of marriage, confessed she could have become ‘lost’ as a young woman in the music industry, but believes Simon and their son Angelo, nine, were ‘angels sent to her.’
Speaking during her CBS special, Adele also revealed that a magazine personality quiz drove her to her decision to divorce Simon two years ago, which helped her realise she was just ‘plodding along’ in her marriage.
She told Oprah Winfrey: ‘I think Simon probably saved my life, to be honest with you. He came at such a moment, where the stability that him and Angelo have given me, no one else would ever have been able to give me.
