The 'Someone Like You' singer announced on Friday that she's been forced to cancel all her remaining tour dates to undergo throat surgery, after being diagnosed with a vocal chord hemorrhage.
However, fans on Twitter suggested that the situation was more serious, with 'Adele has throat cancer' both trending over the weekend.
Adele's spokesman has now intervened, saying: "We would like to reiterate that Adele is to undergo surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal chord. All reports regarding any other condition are 100% false."
Phew. We're keeping our fingers crossed that Adele will be back to her fabulous self in no time.
