Adele reportedly rejected £1 million to sing at two shows in the Middle East to spend time attending to her garden.
Adele reportedly turned down £1 million to perform in the Middle East in favour of pruning her garden.
The 'Hello' singer has developed a penchant for gardening during her break from the spotlight and her friend, fellow musician Guy Sebastian, has revealed the 29-year-old pop megastar snubbed the offer to sing at two shows, because she was preoccupied with her new hobby.
Guy told the Daily Star newspaper: ''I was with Adele's agent and two gigs offered her a £1 million deal to perform.
''Her agent said: 'Nah, she's not doing it. She's busy gardening this week'.
''Adele is often weeding these days.''
Adele hardly needs the cash as she rake in an estimated £52.5 million in 2016.
In February, it was reported that Adele rejected endorsement deals worth almost $40 million for the sake of her son.
The 'Chasing Pavements' hitmaker has been doing all she can to ensure four-year-old Angelo - whom she has with husband Simon Konecki - is kept out of the limelight, and is believed to have rejected the mega sum of money to promote family-friendly products and the chance to feature her family in a reality TV series.
An insider said at the time: ''Adele could fill her whole year with these offers of endorsements and TV work without having to do any singing at all - the offers have simply come flooding in for months on end.
''Adele is a top performer but her caring mum image is just as appealing to companies.
''Her down-to-earth approach to her success and her maternal side are huge plus points for making films.''
The London-born star - who is currently splitting her time between living in Los Angeles and the UK - previously rejected the opportunity to perform at last year's Super Bowl half-time show as she didn't feel like the performance was ''about music''.
On her decision not to perform, Adele said: ''First of all, I'm not doing the Super Bowl. I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don't really - I can't dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I said no.''
In the end, 'Born This Way' singer Lady Gaga ended up stepping up to the job.
