Adele Dumped By Bisexual Ex-Boyfriend For Gay Best Friend, New Book Claims

by at . Comments

The heartbreak that inspired Adele to pen her acclaimed music was inspired by an ex-boyfriend who left her for her gay friend, a new biography claims.

In Adele: The Biography, an unauthorized tome, author Marc Shapiro pays particular attention to the incident in which, allegedly, Adele was dumped.

He says it went down on Adele's 18th birthday and inspired her career.

"One thing we know is that it was a first love gone terribly bad," Shapiro writes.

"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."

The book goes on to claim that "four hours after laying their emotional cards on the table, the boy ran off with one of Adele's gay friends!"

A 2011 article in Out magazine also said Adele wrote two songs, "Hometown Glory" and "Daydreamer," about a bisexual boy she had fallen in love with.

Both of the songs ended up on Adele's 2008 debut album, 19. The singer herself has offered few, if any details about the relationship.

In his book, Shapiro also sheds light on Adele's alleged drinking problem, noting that she "loved the drama surrounding boys who treated her badly."

That includes her absentee father as well as the bisexual boyfriend's cheating. "Adele would drink more than normal to salve the heartbreak," Shapiro says.

Midway through Adele's first tour, he claims, "she had a drinking problem."

Whatever broke her heart, her musical gifts have inspired many.

Charlotte Neve woke up from a coma after hearing one of her songs. Maybe she can thank the guy who dumped her favorite singer for that?



proves a point Adele the song for your boyfriend was from your heart enjoy it some never find love you did///Time heals but why should your heart forget. love each other even if ye never meet again //////


I,M Lucky Gay From Indonesia Lebih Tepatnya D Lampung


Proves a point Adele the song you wrote for your friend is heart felt ///you love him and he you so that feeling is priceless and you found it so enjoy it forever/////even if ye never meet again its yours and his//////


bisexual means passing fad feminism sucks


"Here is some advice to all women: If a guy is bisexual that means that he is gay. You're welcome." Here is some advice to people who don't understand what bisexuals are: Straight people like the opposite sex. Gay people like the same sex. Bisexual people like both sexes. Do you see how that works, sweetheart?


life sometimes has its own way of humbleing you.


This is funny. I literally went through the same thing as her. I fell head over heels for this guy knowing he was bisexual. And we were together for 5 months! Til he decided to dump me because he was in love with my gay best friend of 4 years. So this explains why i love Adele's music sooo much! Thank you!


Adele, I didn't realize till just now that we share the same birthday except I was born in 1957. how cool, I am so excited!! that's great!!!


Adele, you are great and don't let the talk get you down. keep singing cuz I love listening. you have a great voice and are very talented. your soul mate will come when you least expect it. keep your head up and keep singing. love you so much. karen


Adelle go find a big black man that loves BBW's like yourself and let him put the love mojo on you!


she's really looks older than her age, there are some people that look older in their early age and doesn't change till their old age.
