Grammy award-winning artist and international singing sensation, Adele, has been a target of yet another internet death hoax that plagued the Hollywood. The list includes big-time names such as Sylvester Stallone, Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Jaden Smith.
So what prompted the rumors to circulate? Adele’s close friend, Alan Carr, had reportedly recalled on his book about the time when the singer lived with him at his house. At that time, the 28-year-old singer was having a hard time dealing with a break-up with her ex-boyfriend.
“Although she had purged her feelings in 21 she was still cut up about her ex and completely inconsolable,” Carr wrote.
In one instance, Adele didn’t emerge from her room for quite a long time and that’s what worried Carr. When Carr’s partner, Paul, asked him if they should have a look and check at the singer, Carr jokingly said, “I daren’t. What if she’s dead?!
