Adele splits from Simon: let’s all hate the singer who ‘snubbed’ chugging Bob Geldof

The Sun’s “exclusive” that Adele and Simon Konecki are no longer an item has been picked up by the other tabloids.

The Sun says:

News of their separate lives comes as Adele, 26, prepares to release the follow-up album to her global smashes 19 and 21 which laid bare her heartache at failed relationships.

A few hours later the Mirror says:

Her new album was due out before Christmas but is apparently still not finished and there is no release date.

In the Sun , news of a break-up contains the faint whiff of a PR stunt. The last time Sun readers read of Adele she was front-page news for “snubbing” chugging Bob Geldof’s dusting off of the refrain  Do They Know It’s Christmas? for African Ebola victims. In no fewer than four other articles does the Sun repeat that Adele “snubbed” Geldof.

Once again the Sun is keen to mention how Adele let Sir Bob down:

Adele, who is worth an estimated £45million, last month turned down the chance to sing on Bob Geldof’s Band Aid single to raise funds for Ebola victims.

Nice touch to mention her wealth and then how she “turned down” Geldolf and his groups of selfless singers working for the impoverished and sick.
