Adele opens up about her drinking problems in a new biogrpahy, admitting she forgot the words to her own song.
In the new, unofficial book, Adele: The Biography, the Grammy winner opens up about her relationship with her parents, that infamous vocal-chord surgey and her reliance on alcohol.
Released on July 17, the biography written by Marc Shapiro speaks a lot about Adele's personal demons while she was growing up. The author said in an interview with In Touch Weekly that Adele's life has been "a classic rags to riches" story. The writer reveals Adele's relationship with her father was non-existent, as his alcohol problem that nearly killed him meant Adele and her mother already viewed their relationship with him as "dead and gone."
Following on from this, Shapiro goes on to speak about how Adele's relationship with her father has influenced her relationships with men. "She loved the drama surrounding boys who treated her badly," Shapiro said. There are details of these relationships chronicaled in the biography, one in which "Adele would drink more than normal to salve the heartbreak".
"Midway through her first tour, she allegedly had a drinking problem," Shapiro says. And indeed, the book contains parts of an interview with Adele talking about a particular concert where she had fallen off a stool in a drunken stupor. "I got so drunk by the time I went on at 2am I had forgotten the words to my own songs," Adele said "It was the worst thing ever."
