London: Singer Emeli Sande has revealed that she divorced Adam Gouraguine last year, after 12 months of marriage.
The 27-year-old 'Heaven' hitmaker said she almost suffered a breakdown after splitting from her childhood sweetheart, whom she dated for 10 years, reported Contactmusic.
"Everyone thought I'd gone mad. 'What do you mean a divorce? We were all at your wedding a few months ago!' But there was just something inside me that said, 'This isn't the life. You're pretending to be someone else'. And that's so hard to explain to someone. I can't even explain it now," she said.
Sande says she is still coming to terms with losing her best friend. "Adam and I had been together since I was 17. He was my only boyfriend. That's the only person I've been with for the past 10 years. So (losing) our relationship more than the marriage was the big part for me to deal with. Having a friend who'd been my best friend for so long, losing that support and structure in my life was the biggest thing," she added.
