Since announcing the cancellation of her remaining 2011 tour dates, Adele has been the subject of persistent -- but completely unfounded -- rumors that she was suffering from throat cancer. But after a weekend of silence and speculation, Adele's reps have come forward to deny the singer's condition is anywhere near that serious.
We would like to reiterate that Adele is to undergo surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal chord, camp Adele said in a statement to Us Weekly. All reports regarding any other condition are 100 percent false.
Adele may have inadvertently fueled the speculation herself in a post she published on her blog on Oct. 4, when she admitted she was heartbroken and worried to tell you that yet again im experiencing problems with my voice.
On Friday, the following statement was posted on Adele's blog:
It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011. She is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat and a full recovery is expected. As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments.
Adele had previously canceled several U.S. tour dates in October, and the latest cancellation included six dates in the UK.
Though she does not have cancer, Adele's throat surgery is still a major medical procedure, and there is no telling how long the Rumor Has It singer will need to recover.
Thought it may be awhile before you can hear Adele perform live, you can still enjoy her music. Here she is in the award-winning Rolling in the Deep video:
Get well Adele!
