Adele 'to take five-year break'

Adele is reportedly set to take a five-year break after finishing her world tour.

The Hello hitmaker, who only recently returned to the music scene in 2015 after a three-year break, is set to take another hiatus after finishing her huge 105-date world tour in November (16).


Editors at Britain's The Sun newspaper in Britain report that the 27-year-old will quit the limelight to spend quality time with her 3-year-old son Angelo, who she shares with boyfriend Simon Konecki.


A source told the newspaper, "She has told her closest pals she will step away from the limelight for five years before she next brings out an album.


"She’s still very new to motherhood and doesn’t want to miss out on Angelo growing up. It will be a hard thing for fans to hear."


The London-born singer is currently in the midst of the European leg of her world tour, with dates in Birmingham next up. Her last show is in Mexico City on 15 November, when she's reportedly set to go on her five-year break.


The Grammy Award-winner is notoriously private about her son Angelo, but has recently gushed about how much she wants to leave a musical legacy for her toddler.


"Now that I'm a mom, I feel like everything I do, I'm making a legacy for my child," she said in November (15). "So I try and be proper and professional with all of my life, not just my career.


"I think it's really important that I'm very articulate with my feelings going forward, because he will read all about this one day, and I want him to know that I cared about how I was portrayed when he existed in my life, that I wasn't flippant with those things. I don't want to be a baby raising a baby."
