Chart-topping chanteuse Adele had her heart broken by a boyfriend who left her for her gay best friend, according to a new unauthorized biography.
According to Adele: The Biography by Marc Shapiro, it was on the “Rolling in the Deep” singer’s 18th birthday that the whole messy affair blew up. “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,” writes Shapiro. “Four hours after laying their emotional cards on the table, the boy ran off with one of Adele’s gay friends.”
Four hours? That’s hardly enough time for your nails to dry, let alone get your heart broken. And it’s not like Adele got the short end of the deal: The non-affair supposedly inspired two songs on 19, “Hometown Glory” and “Daydreamer,” and fueled her songwriting for Grammy smash 21.
That’s a lot more than Kelly Osbourne, another big girl burned by a bisexual beau, got.
