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?
