Piers Morgan compares Adele to ‘Princess Pinnochio’ Meghan Markle after show axe

Piers Morgan has lashed out at Adele – and compared her to "Princess Pinnochio" Meghan Markle – in his latest scathing attack.

The former Good Morning Britain host launched his latest attack in his column for The Sun, accusing Adele of "disappearing up her own backside" for cancelling her latest string of shows in Las Vegas.

Adele offered the emotional announcement to her fans that her Vegas residency wasn’t ready due to delays from the Covid-19 pandemic – after many had already flown out to see her and splashed out on hotels.

Tickets to the events ranged up to £26,000 from re-sellers online, or up to around £500 from official sellers.

In her statement, a tearful Adele apologised to fans as she said: “I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready.

"I’m so upset and I’m really embarrassed. We’ve been destroyed by delivery delays and Covid. Half my crew and team are ill with Covid and still are, and it’s been impossible to finish the show.

"I can’t give you what I have right now, and I’m gutted. I’m sorry it’s last minute."

But Piers wasn’t having any of it, as he slammed her for "not preparing properly" for the shows, which were set to take place at Caesars Palace casino on The Strip.

Writing in his column, Piers penned: "Adele didn’t prepare properly and didn’t visit the stage before it was too late – and then threw an extended diva fit of Biblical proportions that culminated in her throwing her Meghan [Markle]-like ‘What Adele wants, Adele gets!’ toys out of the pram."

The broadcaster added: "It would appear health-obsessed Adele’s disappeared up her rapidly diminishing celebrity backside, and no amount of weeping and wailing can change that very disappointing fact."

He further accused Adele of becoming out of touch with her working class fans, branding her a "staggeringly rich […] prima donna" after pulling the plug at such short notice.

It comes after TMZ reported that Caesars Palace "was ready" for the shows and simply "can't understand" why Adele cancelled the whole shebang.

The publication reported: "Our Caesars sources say they can’t speak to Adele’s crew, but the Caesars crew was ready, willing and able, and they say they can’t understand why she waited until the last minute to pull the plug."

And according to The Sun, Adele reportedly "refused to take part" in a stunt involving a swimming pool, which she allegedly branded a "baggy old pond".

In the same column, Piers couldn’t resist one more sly dig at the Duchess of Sussex, as he labelled her "Princess Pinnochio" amid the so-called "incendiary smears" against the Royal Family with her bombshell interview last year.
