Emeli Sandé has revealed she’s in a same-sex relationship with someone she says is “the one for life”.
The My Kind of Love singer was previously married to marine biologist Adam Gouraguine. The couple dated for more than 10 years before wedding in 2012.
Two years later, Sandé and Gouraguine announced their divorce. The 35-year-old singer said she met her new partner, a classical pianist whose name has not been released, “through music.”
Sandé, who performed at the opening and closing ceremonies of the London Olympics and recently performed at this week’s star-studded concert for Ukraine, said she “appreciated” that she identified as bisexual, but added that she did not sure.
“I just feel like I should fall in love with whoever,” she told Metro.
Speaking ahead of her new album Let’s Say For Instance, due out in May, Sandé said she feels “happier than ever” with her new partner, adding, “It feels great.”
“To me, true love and love in your life all go together,” she continued.
She also spoke of how “difficult” it was not having anyone to share her achievements with or support her in her work.
But now Sandé said she feels “very fulfilled,” adding, “I’ll always love music and I love my career, but now it just feels like despite everything that’s happening, I’m just enjoying life and can be really happy.”

The announcement comes after Sandé unveiled the video for her new single There Isn’t Much, which showcases the talents of a group of dancers from the LGBT+ community.
In 2014, following her divorce from Gouraguine, Sandé told the Times that she felt like she was “pretending to be someone else” during her marriage.
“Everyone thought I was crazy,” she told the newspaper. “‘What do you mean by divorce? We were all at your wedding a few months ago!’”
“But there was just something inside me that said, ‘This is not life. They pretend to be someone else. I don’t want to call it a breakdown, but it felt like it.”
