Paloma Faith has made reference to her "f***ing s***" year in 2022 amid rumours that she has split from her partner.
The Only Love Can Hurt Like This singer is rumoured to have broken up with partner of nine years Leyman Lahcine late last year and a no longer available Instagram story seemed to confirm her tough time personally.

In a temporary post seen by Mail Online, Faith, 41, shared a photo of herself with a caption about the trials of travelling alone with her two young daughters who she shares with French artist Lahcine, and offered thanks for her support during a tough year.
She wrote: "Omg I am a broken woman getting two kids to Rome alone but I'm here and I'm very dishevelled and I am grateful for everyone who supported me in 2022 cause it was f***ing s***!
"But I've got good feelings about next year! Good times are coming."

Faith and Lahcine began dating in 2013, are thought to have married in secret in 2017, and share two daughters who are five and nearly two.
The singer was reported to have confirmed she was single at Jonathan Ross's Halloween Party last year, and she and Lahcine have stopped following each other on social media.
She did not often open up on their relationship, but in 2016 she told the Sunday People: "Leyman is my husband. You don’t need a marriage certificate. He’s part of my hareem! There are seven of them. We don’t argue. We are very similar characters.
"We respond to things in the same way and just talk about things. If somebody says, 'you’ve hurt me', I say 'I’m really sorry I didn’t mean to'. I’m not ever saying no to marriage… and I have wanted a baby since I was 27."
Faith's difficult time recently has also included a second speeding fine in three months after being prosecuted by London's Met Police.
She was fined £1,000 in September for being caught speeding in Enfield, and in December she was handed another fine of £222 plus court costs for being over the speed limit in Clapton.
Faith, who did not contest either offence, was driving a Skoda both times – a brand she was an ambassador for in 2018.
