Wendy Williams thinks Adele looks great after the Grammy-winner showed off her “100-pound weight loss” in a new photo on May 6. The talk show host, 55, bragged about the singer’s transformation on her Thursday morning show, and admitted that she thinks Simon Konecki was Adele’s motivation to drop the weight. Adele, who shares 7-year-old son Angelo, filed for divorce from Simon in September 2019.
“Adele showed a picture from her [32nd] birthday. This is after losing 100 pounds. She’s single and has her baby and I think she looks terrific… She’s supposed to come out with an album. I’m sure you’ll be waiting because I’m sure it’s all about the divorce and the heartache and the good and bad times,” Wendy said, explaining, “I think she looks great. She said she lost the weight for her son, so she’d be nice and healthy. But, I also suspect that she lost the weight so her ex husband can look at her like, oh damn. You know?”
Adele’s former trainer Camila Goodis (@cagoodis) also believes that the singer’s split from Simon could’ve had an impact on her weight loss. “She got a divorce and I think that’s a great motivation to feel good, even better about yourself… And I think that’s what she did,” Camila, who had worked with Adele after the singer welcomed her first son Angelo in 2012, told HollywoodLife, exclusively in January.

Adele has stayed out of the spotlight in recent months. Her new birthday photo, that shows her slimmed down figure in a black mini dress, is the first time she has shared a full-body photo of herself since December 2019.
The British singer hasn’t released music since 2015’s 25, which featured hit singles like “Hello” and “Send My Love (To Your New Lover).” Adele is slated to release new music this coming September.
