Grammy-winning singer Adele is reminiscing about needing lots of therapy after she split from her ex-husband Simon Konecki.

The "Set Fire to the Rain" singer disclosed to her audience during a recent performance that the dissolution of her marriage had a significant impact on her and led her to begin seeing a therapist several times a day.

The single mother also mentioned that she had resumed attending counseling sessions since she had been lax in holding herself responsible for some of her behaviors and words.

She shared in a previous interview that her new relationship with sports agent Rich Paul has been very smooth.

During her "Weekends with Adele" music show at The Colosseum in Ceasar's Palace, the singer opened up about a difficult time in her life while also treating fans to a night of music.

As fans will remember, Adele divorced her husband in 2019 after they were married for around three years. During the marriage, the pair welcomed one son, Angelo, and are now co-parenting him since their split.

Speaking to her fans on stage, the "Set Fire To The Rain" singer revealed that the end of her marriage took a heavy toll on her, forcing her to seek therapy for her mental well-being.

She explained that, unlike the typical weekly treatment sessions, she required many sessions each day.

'I Started Having Therapy Again'

Before revealing that she needed therapy to deal with her divorce, the mother of one shared that she had started going in again for sessions after not needing one in a long time.

"I started having therapy again because I went a few years without. I needed to start," Adele said, adding that she lost track of some of the core values she had gained earlier.

"I stopped holding myself accountable for my own behaviour and the things I would say," she added. "But now I am doing it because I just want to make sure I'm topping myself up every week to make sure I can give you everything."

Although she did not dive deep into some details, the singer did share that her most recent therapy session centered on helping her be in the best possible mental state for her Las Vegas residency.

Adele 'Dreads' Live Performances


Adele also shared insight as to why she canceled her residency in January, just days before opening night, admitting that she did so because she's a perfectionist.

The "Hello" singer said, "I have always put a massive pressure on myself that everything has to be perfect, perfect," adding that her current residency had to be "f***ing perfect" or else she would have opted to postpone it again.

The 34-year-old star initially revealed that she was not keen on live performances and preferred strutting her stuff in the studio. However, her current residency has changed her stance.

She noted, "I always get so emotional. I love making music, but there is something about performing live that actually terrifies me and fills me with dread. That is why I am not a big touring artist. I did it last time to prove I could do it. But this experience of being in a room this size, I think I might be a live artist for the rest of my life."

In the meantime, Adele is enjoying her relationship with sports agent Rich Paul. The pair started dating in mid-2021 and have been spotted together at high-profile events in the entertainment industry and during his clients' basketball games.

In an interview with Oprah later that year, Adele shared how her relationship with Paul differed from her time with Konecki.

She told her host they share a deep connection, adding that it was the first time she's "loved" herself and "been open to loving and being loved by someone else."

"He's hilarious and very smart," Adele described her partner, per Glamour. "You know, he's very, very smart. It's quite incredible watching him do what he does. And just the easiness of [the relationship]. It's just, it's been very smooth."
