Singer Adele has spoken about how the past months have been a strain in the wake of her separation from husband Simon Konecki.

Adele has marked her 31st birthday with an emotional post on Instagram admitting how hard the past months have been.

The London-born singer announced in the past few weeks she had split from her husband Simon Konecki, before revealing that they had been estranged since Christmas. 

Now she has described how the past year had ‘tried her so hard’ – and then joked she would be releasing a drum and bass album to cover the fallout from the split.

In the emotional post, Adele didn’t hold back with the frank and fruity language that she has been known to use, in contrast to her award-winning singing voice.
