Adele Cancels Brit Awards Performance Days After Tearfully Announcing Vegas Residency Postponement

The ‘Easy On Me’ hitmaker allegedly leaves the event organizers ‘scrambling to make alternative arrangements’ for the highly-anticipated February 8 show at London’s O2 Arena.

AceShowbizAdele has reportedly pulled the plug on another scheduled show. The “Easy On Me” hitmaker allegedly canceled her Brit Awards performance just days after she announced her Las Vegas residency postponement in a tearful social media post.

The 33-year-old chart-topper reportedly told the event’s organizers that she will not be performing at the event, which will take place at London’s O2 Arena on Tuesday, February 8. The sudden cancellation allegedly left the event organizers “scrambling to make alternative arrangements” for the highly-anticipated show.

“Adele was confirmed to perform on the night, but has now pulled out, which has been a massive blow for the organizers,” a source spilled to The Sun on Sunday, January 30. “They are talking to her team to see if she can appear by videolink. It’s a massive headache but they want her involved in any way she will agree.”

The source continued, “They also now have to find someone to accept her awards — should she win. And several big names have already said no.” The insider added, “Names already mentioned include Sam Smith and even Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa, who are both up against Adele for awards, but they are all looking unlikely. They have also made an approach to Stormzy, in the hope that they can persuade him.”

Adele was due to sing at her first Brit Awards gig in five years. The source went on saying, “It seems there were concerns of another backlash if she’d performed on the Brits so soon after calling off her Vegas shows last-minute,” adding that the decision “has understandably caused a great deal of disappointment and, in the wake of that, Adele and her team decided to call off her Brits performance.”

Of her Las Vegas residency postponement, it’s reported that Adele decided to cancel her concert last-minute because of “problems with her sports agent boyfriend Rich Paul.” A source claimed to the New York Daily News, “There’s trouble in paradise. That’s why she can’t perform.”

Previously, Adele allegedly made “shouting and sobbing” calls to Rich during rehearsals. The “Someone Like You” singer “has been crying and couldn’t get through a single full rehearsal for the past month,” claimed one source linked to the management team at Caesars Palace, where the shows were to take place. It’s also said that the pop star “has barely rehearsed because she is constantly in the middle of an emotional shootout.”

Adele reportedly took a private jet to Los Angeles and went straight to her boyfriend’s home just two hours after announcing her show postponement. Shortly after arriving at Rich’s Beverly Hills mansion, the “Rolling in the Deep” singer was caught sneaking into the property.
