Adele 'wooed for billionaire's bash'


Adele has reportedly been approached to perform at a billionaire’s New Year’s Eve party in the Caribbean.

The award-winning singer has been keeping a low profile since the birth of her son Angelo last year, but she may be tempted to return to the stage following the lucrative offer. Russian businessman Roman Abramovich, owner of London soccer club Chelsea FC, is renowned for hosting lavish parties and is determined to land Adele for his December 31st bash.

“Adele is one name on a list of targets for Roman. He always has a big star performing and this year will be no different,” a source told British newspaper The Sun. “A mini-break somewhere exotic will always appeal.

“Roman’s parties are legendary. He throws so much money at them that they never disappoint.”

Roman’s girlfriend Dasha Zhukova is believed to be a huge fan of the Skyfall singer and personally requested her.

Previous acts to perform at Roman’s parties include Beyoncé Knowles, Prince, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Gwen Stefani.

Last year, the tycoon splashed out a staggering £5 million on his New Year’s Eve party, which was attended by a series of A-List stars including George Lucas and Harvey Weinstein. This year, James Bond star Daniel Craig and his wife Rachel Weisz are believed to be on the guest list, along with Skyfall director Sam Mendes.

The bash will take place at Roman’s 70-acre Gouverneur Bay Estate in the Caribbean and will end with a spectacular fireworks display.

Adele is currently busy working on her new album, the follow up to the smash hit 21, which is slated for release next year.
