Adele is an extremely successful English songwriter and performer. Her incredible voice and one of a kind storytelling ability helped her win over the hearts of millions of fans worldwide. Thanks to her popularity and tremendous career success, Adele managed to amass a net worth of more than $125 million. If you couldn’t guess, that kind of money can get you pretty much anything, including – of course – a pizza from a pizzaria more than 70 miles away.
Yup, the 28 year old sent a resort employee on a 140 mile round trip for a slice of ‘za, and to make matters worse, she didn’t even end up eating it. Before you start judging, let’s back track and hear the full story.
Adele is widely known as one of the most down-to-earth entertainers in the industry, but even she is seemingly capable of occasionally acting like a total diva. When the superstar was vacationing at a luxury country estate with her partner and 3-year-old son, she apparently had a craving for some pizza.
The resort the couple were staying at had a number of on-call chefs, all of whom are capable of preparing a pizza. In fact, a source told Daily Mail that the resort is equipped with some of the best pizza ovens that money can buy, but Adele wasn’t having any of it. She insisted that a member of the resort staff drive to her favourite restaurant in Kensington, to pick up some pizza there.
The Soho Farmhouse has a policy of saying “yes” to pretty much every whim of their guests, and Adele made sure to take advantage of the fact. It was 11pm when the singer ordered her take out, and by the time the driver made the trip out to London and back, she and her partner were fast asleep. A roomservice team member pointed out that the pizza was still in its box when the room was cleaned in the morning – rendering the entire late-night trip useless for resort staff.
Tabloids all over the world picked up on this story and made quite a big fuss about it, seemingly forgetting that Adele isn’t just a regular person. She is a superstar singer and a multimillionaire, so ordering a pizza from a different city isn’t that big of a deal. After all, the employees were paid for their time.
Also, pizza is a rare treat for Adele these days. After returning to the limelight with the release of her third album, it became obvious that the superstar lost some significant weight. In fact, Adele revealed that she follows a strict diet regimen, and a custom workout program – despite hating spending time at the gym.
