A new name of Adele’s ex-boyfriend has been revealed and media are claiming photographer Alex Sturrock is Adele’s inspiration from her hit Someone Like You.
According to the Sun a photographer named Alex Sturrock has Adele’s boyfriend between the Summer of 2008 and April 2009, they met thru mutual friends and became pretty much inseparable to the point that he moved in with her at her Shepherd’s Bush home in West London, according to a source close to both Adele and Alex..
“They met through mutual friends and hit it off straight away. He shot her a few times and that was just it.
“They spent all their time together – and when they weren’t together they would ring each other constantly. He’s a very normal guy and they’d laugh a lot together, eat junk food and ignore the fact that her career was about to go stratospheric.
“Adele relied on him a lot, he was her best mate as well as her boyfriend and he was very protective of her. He’d say no one knew her like he did.”
Alex became Adele’s official photographer at her 2009 tour, they shared hotel room during that tour and he was by her side when she won a Grammy in 2009. Alex and Adele split later that year, the same year she recorded the song he inspired Someone Like You, Adele once said he was the love of her life, certainly she never revealed his name.
31 year-old Alex Sturrock has worked with Vice Magazine (photo editor at large) and The Guardian to name a few, he has taken portrait of many celebrity like 50 Cent, Lil’ Wayne, Leonard Cohen, Gemma Arterton, Justin Bieber, Ndubz, Shaquille O”Neal, Pixie Geldof, Slayer (Metal music band), Sean Paul plus Adele.
