Adele admits she was ‘borderline alcoholic,’ is now sober

Adele admitted recently that she was “borderline alcoholic” when she was in her 20s, telling fans at her Las Vegas residency that she is now sober. 

“I stopped drinking quite a long time ago. … It feels like forever, maybe like three and a half months ago,” she told her audience, according to a video on social media. “It’s boring. I mean, I was literally borderline alcoholic for quite a lot of my 20s, but I miss it so much.” 

She told an audience member, “So enjoy your whiskey sour. I’m very, very jealous.’ 

Earlier this year, the “I Drink Wine” singer told a crowd that the last time she had come to Las Vegas during the coronavirus pandemic she’d had several bottles of wine before noon.

In her 2021 song “I Drink Wine,” Adele sings, “When I was a child / Every single thing could blow my mind / Soaking it all up for fun / But now I only soak up wine.” 

While getting through her divorce, she said, “At first, I was probably keeping the alcohol industry alive. But you know, once I realized that I had a lot of work to do on myself, I stopped drinking, and I started working out lots and stuff like that to keep me centered.”

Around the time of her divorce, Adele also began to focus on her health and ended up losing around 100 pounds by working out to quell her anxiety. 

“It was never about losing weight, it was always about becoming strong and giving myself as much time every day without my phone. I got quite addicted to it,” she told British Vogue. 

Fox News Digital has reached out to a rep for Adele for comment.
