After the separation from her ex, Simon Konecki (her son’s father), Adele settled in Los Angeles and for the first time forged relationships with two Hollywood icons who, according to the singer, succeed in ‘humanizing’ her.
We are talking about movie star Jennifer Lawrence and reality TV personality Nicole Richie, who just happened to be neighbors.
“They humanized me because I had avoided talking to anyone that was ever famous in any capacity, because I was like, ‘Well, I’m not famous.’ I’m very British like that,” Adele told Rolling Stone. “We never spoke about work, which was amazing, because most of the time when I catch up with someone, they want to know all about my work, and I’m like, ‘I don’t want to talk about that. Can we talk about something else? I’m knackered.’”
The singer also gets along very well with Cameron Diaz.
“We all see her success. Her undeniable talent and beauty. But what you don’t see is what a wonderful mother she is. What a wonderful partner and friend she is. That she makes her son’s Halloween costumes,” Lawrence wrote about the singer back in 2016. “Adele is a gift, an international treasure, but she’s also sweet, funny, intelligent and beautiful. Bitch.”
However, former husband Konecki joined Adele in Los Angeles and now lives across the street from Adele’s compound in Beverly Hills.
“We do normal, normal things on the weekends,” Adele said about the family’s current setup. “I’ll take him to the parties, all of that. We’ll do school drop-off.”
