The break up that led Adele to creating one of the best albums, ever, almost paved the way to a drinking problem for her.
In a new biography written by Marc Shapiro, he recounts the time after the break up before she was able to handle the hurt without help from alcohol:
"Adele would drink more than normal to salve the heartbreak."
Apparently she said this to him about the time she fell off a stool during a concert because she was drunk:
"I got so drunk by the time I went on at 2 a.m. I had forgotten the words to my own songs… It was the worst thing ever."
Shapiro then notes:
"Midway through her first tour, she allegedly had a drinking problem."
We don't think this the case now, of course, that she's moved on from the heartbreak.
Adele has always been a raw and emotional woman, and we're just glad that she's been able to tap into her writing instead of tapping the bar for another round.
We love you Adele!
