Adele ‘angry and upset’ after hacker leaks private photos

The photos included childhood photos and pictures of her three-year-old son

Private photos of Adele have been leaked online, according to reports.

Reports claim that a hacker recently gained access to an email account belonging to the singer’s partner Simon Konecki. The leaked photos are said to include a photo of the star’s three-year-old son Angelo, a baby scan photo and images from her childhood. Adele is reportedly “angry and upset” about the leak.

The Sun On Sunday reports that the images were initially shared through a private fan Facebook group, with one fan reporting the leak to Adele’s management.

The fan told the newspaper: “I was appalled and upset when I saw the pictures. They are really private and should not be passed around. I think it is disgusting that her so-called fans were sending them around and I thought it should be stopped.”

“They are way too private, especially the scan and picture of her when she was pregnant,” the individual added. “If Adele wanted to share these pictures I am sure she would. It would be up to her if she wants intimate pictures like this shown around.”

Adele is known for safeguarding her privacy. Last month, she discussed her reasons for not wanting photographers to take pictures of her son.

The singer told Vogue: “I think it’s really hard being a famous person’s child. What if he wants to smoke weed or drink underage, or what if he’s gay and doesn’t want to tell me, and then he’s photographed and that’s how I find out?”


Last year, Adele told Radio 1 that she wrote “an album about being a mum” but scrapped it because it was “pretty boring.”

She also said that her new lifestyle made it difficult to start work on her album ’25’: “Getting into the headspace was really difficult – obviously now I’m a parent, and having such a break off, I kind of fell out of the habit of writing songs.”

Adele is currently in the middle of her UK tour in support of ’25’. At her London gig on Friday night, she announced that she will headline this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
