KEY POINTS

  • Adele bought three mansions in Beverly Hills between 2016 and May this year
  • The British singer-songwriter is currently estimated to be worth $190 million
  • Adele relocated to Los Angeles years ago due to the pricey real estate in London

Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, popularly known as Adele, is currently worth hundreds of millions, but even the British superstar has some things she finds too expensive.

In her interview with Giles Hattersley for British Vogue's November 2021 issue, Adele, 33, revealed that she relocated from London to Los Angeles years ago with her ex-husband Simon Konecki and their 9-year-old Angelo due to the extremely pricey real estate.

"The kind of house I have in L.A. I could never afford in London. Ever," said the London-born singer-songwriter, who is currently worth an estimated $190 million.

Adele now has three Beverly Hills homes, all located in the same street. The properties are all designed with a British cottage vibe and total around $30 million.

Adele bought her first home in the Hidden Valley community for $9.5 million in 2016, the New York Post reported. The 6,597-square-foot mansion comes with four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a pool, spa, library and other amenities.

She purchased the second estate, adjacent to the other two homes, for $10.65 million three years later, shortly after her split from Konecki. The 6,045-square-foot home is believed to be occupied by Konecki so that they can raise their son close together, according to the outlet. The former couple's divorce was finalized in March.

The Grammy-winning artist bought her third home in the neighborhood from close pal Nicole Richie for $10 million in May. The  5,515-square-foot property has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a half-court basketball court, a freeform swimming pool and a separate spa.

Adele revealed in her Vogue interview that she spent most of her time in London "in a car or inside a building" and hoped to move somewhere she could breathe "fresh air and see the sky."

When questioned about her statement that she can't afford homes in London, Adele insisted, "No, I looked at houses. It's like hundreds of millions of pounds. I don't have that much money at all. I'd throw up." 

However, the average house price in London was at £514,000 ($701,509) as of November 2020, The Guardian reported, citing data from the Office for National Statistics. This was lower than the median home price in Los Angeles County, which was $775,000 as of May, the Los Angeles Times reported, citing data firm DQNews.

Aside from her Beverly Hills homes, Adele's impressive real estate portfolio also includes properties in Malibu, California, and London.

Prior to moving to Los Angeles, Adele's primary residence was an $11 million estate in West Sussex, England. She tried to sell the house in 2016 for the same amount she bought it but could not find a buyer.

Adele rose to prominence after she released her debut track, "Hometown Glory," in 2007. Her debut studio album, "19," sold 6.5 million copies, while her next offering, "21," became the best-selling record of 2011 after shifting a staggering 18.1 million copies.

Adele continued her chart dominance with "25," which was the world's best-selling album for 2015. It sold 18.4 million copies in the year it debuted and has gone on to sell over 22 million copies worldwide.

Over the years, she has received numerous awards for her work, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the Grammys.

Adele recently released her first song in six years, "Easy On Me." Her fourth studio album, "30," will release on Nov. 19.
