Adele is one of the most of the hottest pop acts in the industry today. Earlier this month, the English music sensation cancelled her Las Vegas residency, at the time she explained a Covid outbreak in her crew held her back from performing. Now, it appears the reason behind her last minute cancellation was entirely different.
The New York Daily News’s Richard Johnson reported that the singer called off her Caesars Palace “Weekends With Adele” residency less than a day before her scheduled appearance on Friday because of her issues with her new boyfriend, Rich Paul. A source told Daily Mail, “There’s trouble in paradise. That’s why she can’t perform.”
Other sources close to Adele claim that the singer was seen crying throughout her rehearsals and interrupting them to take phone calls with Paul. Her residency was initially slated to debut last week with performances scheduled to run through April.
In some photos obtained by the outlet, Adele was spotted boarding a plane in Vegas en route for Los Angeles to be with Paul right after the news of her cancellation was announced. Meanwhile, the exact nature of her issues with Paul are still unknown.
Paul is a sports agent by profession. The 40-year old manages the likes of LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons, among other athletes. Paul has been with Adele since early 2021. Meanwhile, Adele has yet to address these claims by New York Daily. We will be on the lookout for more updates. Stay tuned to Thirsty.
