Adele says she had 'five therapy sessions a day' during divorce from Simon Konecki

Adele has said she was having ‘five therapy sessions a day’ when going through her divorce with Simon Konecki.
The 34-year-old singer is currently performing her Weekends with Adele residency in Las Vegas and has said she’s going back into therapy to ensure she's on top form for the shows. You can see her talking about going to therapy here:
During a performance last night (10 December), Adele spoke candidly about seeking therapy with her audience - joking that while in the midst of her divorce she would have several sessions a day.
The award-winning singer announced her divorce from Konecki, 48, in 2019. The pair share son Angelo, 10.
In footage caught by one fan, she could be heard to say: “I started having therapy again because I went a few years without. I needed to start.
“Before, obviously, when I was going through my divorce, I was basically doing five therapy sessions a day.
“But I stopped holding myself accountable for my own behaviour and the things I would say.
“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.”
Appearing to become emotional, she told her fans that performing such big events ‘terrifies’ her.
“And my whole therapy session this week was really interesting,” she said. “It was about these shows. 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.”
Adele was forced to cancel her residency back in January - just days before it was set to kick off.
Speaking at the time she said: “I have always put a massive pressure on myself that everything has to be perfect, perfect.
“Obviously this show did have to be f**king perfect hence me delaying it again.
“I'm sorry. I am just a human and that is what having to cancel those shows needed. I am the happiest I've ever been.”
On the opening night of the residency, Adele admitted to being ‘scared and nervous’ but went on to say it was ‘perfect’.
