Adele surprised a seriously ill fan in Belfast last night... it's The Dredge

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom.

Adele performed her second gig in Belfast last night. But before she headed to the SSE Arena, she paid a very special visit to 12-year-old Rebecca Gibney.

Rebecca has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and her mam started a Twitter campaign to try get Adele to visit her.

And yesterday she received a call from Adele’s management informing her Adele would be at the house in an hour.


The Belfast Telegraph reports that Adele played with Rebecca’s hair and “asked her all about Frozen”.

Rebecca’s mam told BBC:

It’s amazing. I’ll never forget it. And I do know that when Rebecca passes away she did get her dream come true. It’s made me feel like I’m the best mummy in the world which I never felt. Adele told me I was the best mummy in the world too.

Lovely. (BBC News)

Kanye West has been unveiled as a secret Torrent user. Earlier today, the rapper tweeted a screenshot of his internet browser. There he is listening to a Sufjan Stevens song.

But what’s that, we see? Is Kanye a PirateBay user?

It looks as though the rapper was caught rapid trying to pirate music software. An “advanced wavetable synthesiser” called Serum that retails for $189, to be precise.

Oh, the delicious irony. (Buzzfeed)

Ronan Keating and Storm Keating are perfectly happy, thank you very much. Earlier this week, the couple were reported to have had a “heated” argument, but now they’re claiming that no such thing happened.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, Keating wrote, “Disappointed in the Daily mail Oz 4 writing a fabricated story from a series of pics. We had a lovely evening & waved by to the paparazzi.”


Keating also shared a photo of Storm that was taken around the time of the alleged heated discussion.

It’s funny… I wanted to post this photo last night but had to hold myself back because I’ve got grief in the past for being too loved up & showing my happiness too much. Then I woke up this morning and A journalist (Megan Pustetto) wrote in the Daily Mail Australia the opposite?! Absolutely hilarious. It goes to show that sometimes it doesn’t matter what you do – people will want to twist & do whatever it takes to throw a punch at ya. the haters, Ronan. (3AM)
