Fifteen-time Grammy Award winner Adele has announced her return to the spotlight after nearly six years of hiatus, breaking her silence to confirm dating rumors with Rich Paul and tackle her divorce in her latest album.

This week, the 33-year-old singer unveiled that her new music on the fourth album, "30," will encapsulate her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki and nine-year-old son Angelo Adkins, and how it sent her life spiraling into chaos, ELLE reported.

Her newest single, "Easy on Me," will drop on Oct. 15, a month earlier than the expected release of her "divorce" album, which she claims would focus more on her disunion with herself.

“I feel like this album is self-destruction, then self-reflection, and then sort of self-redemption. But I feel ready. I want people to hear my side of the story this time," she said as she sat down for separate interviews and photoshoots for Vogue's U.S. and U.K. editions.

The "Hello" hitmaker would also unveil feeling a pang of guilt following her decision to end things with charity CEO Konecki while clarifying that neither party did anything wrong to hurt each other.

Konecki now lives across the road from Adele and shares custody of Angelo, BBC noted.

Rather, the English singer-songwriter confessed she felt the need to move forward in pursuit of her happiness, something she wanted son Angelo to understand growing up.

The complexity of her decision to file for divorce was proven a hard pill for son Angelo to swallow because he could not comprehend what went wrong. They never even once fought in front of him.

"I want my son to see me really love, and be loved. It’s really important to me," she said.

Adele said immortalizing her heartfelt apology to Angelo would allow him to understand why she broke their family apart, noting she would have been more miserable if she ignored her own cry for help, according to the Guardian.

Following the divorce, the "Set Fire To The Rain" singer sought professional help and started attending therapy sessions, which served as a guiding force for her.

"[My] relationship with men in general, my entire life, has always been: You’re going to hurt me, so I’ll hurt you first," Adele revealed. "It’s just toxic and prevents me from actually finding any happiness. Sometimes, with my own son, he could talk to me in a certain way, and I shut down."

The Golden Globe Award winner also got candid about her relationship with sports agent Rich Paul, who she met a couple of years ago at a party, where they started as friends.

“He was always there, I just didn’t see him,” she said while admitting she is the best version of herself with him.

Adele shared that since her therapy and decision to date Paul, she became more confident as a 33-year-old divorced mom of one and finally learned to be in charge of her own life.
