Adele Forgives Ex Behind '21' Heartbreak Lyrics

'21' star Adele makes friends with the ex who inspired her 'Someone Like You' song lyrics.

Adele has revealed she's getting pally with the ex boyfriend that broke her heart and was the inspiration behind some of her saddest song lyrics on the album.

"We're becoming friends again," Adele told fans at a London show.

"It's alright, I know what I'm doing. Enough time has gone by now."

Supporters of the award-winning singer booed the mention of Adele's ex, who she famously cried over while on stage at this year's BRIT Awards after performing 'Someone Like You'.

"Now with what's going on with the album around the world it's important to be able to share it with him," she shared.

"Because it's marvellous what has happened. He changed my life, I can't deny that.

"The album helped me get over splitting up with my boyfriend. It helped me forgive and I hope he has forgiven himself."

Despite cancelling the initial dates because of illness, Adele is now in full swing on her UK tour, with tickets for most dates sold out.
