When Adele left a pal Kelli-Leigh rolling in the creeps
RUMOUR Has It Adele was a real prankster back in the day after giving her former schoolmate a fright.
The superstar’s backing singer Kelli-Leigh, who went to The Brit School with Adele, said there were plenty of high jinks when they toured for a year and half together in 2011.
‘I have a proper phobia of spiders and Adele caught wind of that,’ she exclusively told Guilty Pleasures.
Describing how the singer went off and found lots of little black blobs, Kelli-Leigh (pictured) added: ‘It was all quiet in the dressing room. We were doing our make-up, getting ready for the show. She came in, chucked [them] on me and screamed, “Spiders!”
‘I obviously freaked the F out, “Get it off me!” You couldn’t be mad at her because she was my boss at the time.’ Now, stepping into the spotlight, Kelli-Leigh, 32, recently released a single, Do You Wanna Be Loved Like This? and is appearing at the Boardmasters Festival this summer.
