Adele used to get so intoxicated before playing concerts that she once fell off a stool on stage.
The Rolling In The Deep singer also forgot the words to one of her songs according to a new biography.
She described her memory lapse as "the worst thing ever", according to the book out next month.
The star's unofficial biographer Marc Shapiro told In Touch magazine: "Midway through her first tour, she allegedly had a drinking problem. Apparently she told him in an interview: "I got so drunk by the time I went on at 2 am I had forgotten the words to my own songs ... It was the worst thing ever."
The author continued: "Adele would drink more than normal to salve the heartbreak."
According to his book Adele: The Biography, her bisexual boyfriend cheated on her, leaving the 24-year-old distraught.
He continued: "She loved the drama surrounding boys who treated her badly. She had a fairly good self-image and seemed to handle it okay on the surface, but I'm sure it bothered her on a deep, emotional level."
Mark has previously written the biographies of Justin Bieber and Harry Potter author JK Rowling.
