Last year, Adele had her sights set on purchasing Sylvester Stallone's lavish house, but she had one condition - she wanted the iconic Rocky statue to come with it. Stallone, known for his portrayal of the famous boxer Rocky Balboa, had a statue of the character overlooking his pool at his Los Angeles mansion. As the actor and singer negotiated the terms of the sale, Stallone revealed in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that Adele was adamant about acquiring the statue.

"She said, 'That’s a no deal. That's gonna blow the whole deal,'" Stallone shared, referring to Adele's insistence on having the statue. Stallone, being understanding, agreed to part ways with the statue, ultimately sealing the deal. Adele reportedly purchased the home for a discounted price of

But how exactly is Adele able to afford Stallone's former estate and the iconic statue? Earlier this year, she revealed that she would be extending her residency at The Colosseum at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. Her Weekends With Adele residency includes an additional 34 dates, running from June 16 to November 4. Adele's first string of shows, which took place from November 18 to March 25, were a massive success, with all tickets being sold out. The singer also announced to her Vegas audience that the June performances would be recorded for a concert film.

"Playing to 4,000 people for 34 nights is not enough, and I know that, I know it's not enough. So I am coming back," Adele expressed in a video captured by fans. "I'll be back for a few weeks in June, and I’m going to film it and I'm going to release it to make sure that anyone who wants to see the show (can see it)."

Fans of Adele can look forward to experiencing her dynamic performances in Las Vegas and catching her captivating concert film in the near future.
