Unwilling to rest on the laurels of her viral Oprah TV special, Adele is reportedly leaning deeper into the documentary game, this time with a juicy tell-all about her current romance. (These days, if the celebs aren’t writing memoirs, they’re making documentaries!) After she detailed the circumstances surrounding her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki to Oprah, the “Easy On Me” singer has since fallen in love with top sports agent Rich Paul, and Page Six reports that her supposed documentary would go behind-the-scenes into their courtship.
The film would be her “most insightful work yet,” a source told The Sun on July 15, and would cover both her life with Paul as well as the sudden screeching halt her Las Vegas residency took in January.
“Adele feels she let fans down somewhat with how the past 12 months have panned out, particularly the last-minute postponement of her Las Vegas residency, and sees [making a documentary] as a way of making up for that,” the source said.
They added, “One thing is for certain, it will be must-watch TV. Even though everyone knows her name, Adele is still quite mysterious as a person. Her life now compared to when she released her debut album is unrecognizable.” [Insert side-eye emoji here.]
Such rumors might be part of a gentle image-rehabilitation scheme on Adele’s behalf, after the singer shocked fans when she postponed the Vegas residency after deeming it “not good enough.” Still, she remains unwavering in her decision, having told BBC Radio 4 that, despite the “brutal” backlash leaving her “a shell of a person for a couple of months,” postponing was the right choice. “I was devastated and I was frightened about letting them down, and I thought I could pull it together and make it work and I couldn’t, and I stand by that decision,” she said. “You can’t buy me, you can’t buy me for nothing. I’m not going to just do a show because I have to or because people are going to be let down or because we’re going to lose loads of money.”
She performed her first public concert in five years on July 2, where she told the crowd that the rearranged Las Vegas dates would be available “very, very soon.” In the meantime, she seems to be planning a consolation prize for fans: an intimate peek into her life offstage. Just don’t expect much drama. She told BBC Radio 4, “Over my dead body is my kid having a messy divorce in his life. There are no issues.”
