The Inspiration Behind Adele's 21 Finally Has A Name!

| Filed under: Music MinuteLove LineAdele

21 mystery man revealed

So, the incredible album 21 was based on heartbreak, as we all know.

But what we didn't know was who broke Adele's beautiful heart… until now.

His name is Alex Sturrock, and he was both Adele's photographer — and the love of her life!

He's 31-years-old and supposedly dated her between then summer of 2008 and April 2009. The problem is, he didn't want a label.

Here's what one of his friends said:

“It was an intense period for them. They met through mutual friends and hit it off straight away. He shot her a few times and that was just it. They spent all their time together – and when they weren’t together they would ring each other constantly.”

She hired him for the tour after they became inseparable, rooming together, and him ending up living in her place.

The friend continued:

“He’s a very normal guy and they’d laugh a lot together, eat junk food and ignore the fact that her career was about to go stratospheric. Adele relied on him a lot, he was her best mate as well as her boyfriend and he was very protective of her. He’d say no one knew her like he did. Adele was pretty hurt by that, but Alex didn’t want to label what they had.’

It totally fits what Adele said happened, too:

“I expected too much. I was needy, I was jealous even though I’m not a jealous person. I was feeling pretty miserable and pretty lonely. I was on my knees really. We’re becoming friends again. It’s alright. I know what I'm doing. Enough time has gone by.”

That's fab, just don't get caught up in it again!

We wonder if he felt terrible or what after the album came out… he had to have been feeling a little vulnerable at least!

So, now that U know — what do U think??

    I wonder if the same idiots from the Rihanna post will come on here and label Adele as an idiot for having the strength to forgive her ex and move on?

    Really Perez , you should know better than to spout such media drivel.
    I know who it is and It is NOT him.

    "You're So Vein" by Carley Simon. Written in 1972. We still don't know who it was about, 40 years later! Despite speculation. And it's the mystery that makes the song unique! There is value in not knowing!
