It had been reported that the grandmother of the ‘Someone Like You’ singer had suffered a heart attack just shortly before the ceremony, just hours before she had received two awards at Tuesday’s event. Adele had been apparently holding a bedside vigil for the sixty eight year-old called Rose who helped raise her.
According the Sunday Sun Adele did in fact cancel all other commitments following the collapse of her grandmother South Wales supermarket. The singer’s grandmother is now recovering at her home following surgery but Adele apparently refused to leave her until doctor’s gave her the all-clear. A friend has expressed to the paper:
“Adele was panic-stricken. It would have broken her heart to have lost her. She didn’t leave her side until doctors reassured her that her gran was on the mend”
