You would have had to been living on Mars not to have heard of record-breaking singer songwriter Adele. Her debut album, 19 was released in 2008 and was a great commercial and critical success – so much so it went platinum four times in the UK.
Adele’s Haunted House
At the 2009 Grammy Awards, Adele received the awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Her next album 21 added another six Grammy Awards in 2012 including Album of the Year, equalling the record for most Grammy Awards won by a female artist in one night.
Naturally, this level of success has earned the singer a few pennies in the bank and she decided to look for a new home to call her own. So recently she bought a modest little dwelling in Sussex so she could be near her boyfriend, Simon Konecki, who lives in Brighton.
Admittedly Adele’s bijou little residence isn’t all that bijou, it is set in 25 acres of land, has two swimming pools, ten bedrooms, a helicopter pad, uninterrupted views of the South Downs and a tennis court. Then again, as Adele is paying a rent of £15,000 a month you’d expect she get a few extras thrown in. And that’s the problem. It seems she isn’t the only occupant in her new nest and this one may have been there much much longer. Adele is convinced that what she wanted to be a happy home is actually a haunted house. A friend told British The Sun newspaper that Adele was not comfortable in her mansion.
“She is convinced it is haunted. She knows about its religious history — and it’s a big place to be in on your own in the dead of night.”
Adele herself commented on the 60 Minutes programme to its presenter Anderson Cooper; as they moved through a dark corridor of her Partridge Green home that;
‘This bit is quite scary really’
She also claims to have heard strange noises in the building part of which was a convent. So what is a star to do when she’s feeling spooked in her own mansion? Pay someone to keep her company of course. And Adele is doing just that she is reportedly paying a female bodyguard, a former chauffeur, who is in her 30s £100,000 a year to stay with her in the historic listed building 24/7. As the singer put it;
“I’m not rattling around here on my own. It gives me the creeps.”
Imagine being paid £100,000 for hanging out in a mansion with swimming pools, a tennis court and stunning views? Now, that’s my sort of job! Unfortunately, spooky spirits are not Adele’s only problem. She has had two hire another two guards. These two members of staff will be needed to guard the gates of the mansion after Adele discovered a public footpath runs past the front door of her rural retreat. A friend said:
“She can see the funny side but she is a sensible girl and knows there is no point taking chances with her safety.”
