Adele Moved To Los Angeles Because She Says She Can’t Afford The “Same Kind Of House” In London
Adele is really making me laugh and cry this morning. The internet claims that Adele’s net worth is $190 million and that’s about to get bigger, because she’s got a new single, Easy On Me, coming out this Friday, and her new album, 30, is on its way. But that doesn’t mean Adele is just made out of money. According to her, at least. I don’t know if she got cleaned out in her divorce from Simon Konecki, but Adele says that she lives in LA because apparently, the costs of mansions in London are just too high. Baby, if Adele can’t afford to live somewhere–no one can.
In her recent interview with British Vogue, Adele talked about living in LA and how when she was in London she was always indoors and wanted to live somewhere with “fresh air and somewhere where I could see the sky.” Fresh air? In Los Angeles? Ummm… okay. The New York Post says that Adele actually has quite the number of properties in LA. She owns three separate mansions in the guarded community of Hidden Valley in Beverly Hills. Adele bought her first property in 2016 in Beverly Hills for $9.5 million, then she bought a second home right next door for a cool $10.65 million, and this past May, Adele bought another four-bedroom, four-bathroom home from friend Nicole Richie for $10 million. Combined, Adele has over 18,000 square feet of space and spent over $30 million. Here’s a pic of her houses:

Obviously, none of us could ever do such a thing, but Adele is reportedly worth $177 million. Even still, she told British Vogue that “the kind of house I have in LA I could never afford in London. Ever.”
I still think the most interesting part of the Adele Vogue UK interview is that she admits that even she (Adele!) can't afford to buy property in London. GLOBAL SUPERSTAR ADELE cannot afford to buy property in London! pic.twitter.com/zIUFURQIk2

And the gag is: Adele is right. In London, a penthouse apartment of 18,000 square feet costs $247 million. And the reactions on Twitter were expected:
“Adele with her long money can’t afford a house in London? We are all doomed.”
“She owns three homes in LA, totaling $30 million, but she can’t afford real estate in London?”
Yeah, log this in the file: “Why it’s hard for me to believe in a benevolent God.” It’s a pretty stacked binder as is, but you can fit it in. I guess we’ll see what kind of album sales 30 has. If she suddenly moves back to London we’ll know that Adele is “live In London” types of rich instead of “slumming it on a compound in Beverly Hills” types of rich.
