It looks like the "First World Problems" meme has a new addition: Adele has just reported that she can't sleep alone in her PS7 million mansion unless her bodyguard is present.
After "hearing things that made her jump" one night, Adele told a friend: "I'm not rattling around here on my own. It gives me the creeps." Then she hired a full-time bodyguard to sleep near her and accompany her around the world as she tours and travels.
Apparently, Adele believes the house is haunted due to its history as a convent.
"She is convinced it is haunted," her friend told The Sun. "She knows about its religious history--and it's a big place to be in on your own in the dead of night."
Um, big is an understatement: The place has 10 bedrooms and two swimming pools. Unless Adele is planning on partying with the entire British Olympic swim team, why would she possibly need two swimming pools?
But whatevs, I'm totally on her side. I mean, anything that keeps Adele feeling safe and sound is fine by me--just as long as she keeps writing killer breakup anthems.
