Emeli Sandé's husband is no longer "next to" the "Next to Me" singer.
Sande revealed that she divorced her husband, childhood sweetheart Adam Gouraguine, after only a year of marriage. What went wrong? Life.
The two had wed in his native Montenegro in September 2012. They divorced in 2013 and Sande kept the news a bit of a secret but with good reason.
"I think I spent the couple of months, not in denial, but not really dealing with what had happened," she told The Times. "Adam and I had been together since I was 17. He was my first-ever boyfriend. That's the only person I've been with for the past 10 years. So our relationship more than the marriage was the big part for me to deal with."
That makes sense. It was about losing the long-term love, not the fact that a marriage collapsed.
She blamed scheduling and careers for the split, saying, "We were married in the madness, the whirlwind. It was literally: Olympics, wedding, fly to Montenegro, get married, fly back, we had maybe a week's honeymoon together. Our lives were so separate. I was on tour all the time and I think it was quite unfair of me to want his world to fit into my life so much. He'd come on tour, then he'd go away for three months on a marine biology expedition somewhere."
The split bummed her out. She said, "I just felt I had to wake up. I'd been sleeping and things were happening. I could get up on stage and sing, but I don't know, it was just a real… I don't want to call it a breakdown, but it felt like that."
We know, girl, we know! Heartbreak can feel like death. It sucks.
