Should be parent specific:
*father – Welsh
*mother – English
Could also be added that in 2017, a Turkish man claimed to be her father. This is evidently not accurate.
Correction. She’s now divorced.
I think her divorce from Simon was finalized.
I think these articles warrants a mention on the page. Something like:
In January 2017, Turkish musician Mehmet Asar, from Bodrum, Turkey, claimed that he is Adele’s biological father. He stated that he, who at the time was working as a cab driver, had an affair with Adele’s mother while she was on holiday in Bodrum in July-August 1987 (which corresponds with Adele’s birth). It is not clear if this story has been confirmed to be true. A picture of what Asar claims to be him and Adele’s mother can be viewed here (https://iadsb.tmgrup.com.tr/7453f2/0/0/0/0/2021/2048?u=http://i.tmgrup.com.tr/dailysabah/2017/01/24/turkish-musician-from-bodrum-claims-he-is-the-father-of-british-star-adele-1485254850928.jpg&mw=400).
Considering Adele’s Dutch interview, this Turkish musician didn’t come out of nothing. We will wait and see.
Though she also said in the same interview that she is half Welsh, so…
To paraphrase Ronan Farrow, “Listen, we’re all *possibly* Mehmet Asar’s child.”
Actually, after looking over this again, I’m now more doubtful. Penny Adkins had to be 19 years old when she was with Mehmet Asar, and the woman in the picture looks far from that age. And it is strange of him to open up in public about this topic instead of contacting Adele’s family first. He might just be a liar who seeks publicity (as far as I know, we haven’t gotten a public answer from Adele or her mother yet).
However, if he does happen to tell the truth anyway, especially about the dates they were together, it is possible that he is her biological father.
Adele looks exactly like her father Marc
Her Turkish family is her Aunt Kim’s family through marriage “Kim had married a Turkish man and they had four children – the Turkish side of the Adkins clan”.
I can’t see any sort of similarity between Adele and that Turkish dude. I don’t like to judge based on looks, but I don’t see Adele as being anything else than purely British.
but still pretty
Amazing how things change
