Rebel Wilson's Memoir Reveals Tension With Adele Over Weight

Rebel Wilson has made some intriguing claims in her new memoir, 'Rebel Rising,' suggesting that Adele may harbor negative feelings towards her. Wilson expressed her caution in referring to certain actresses as plus-size in her book, hinting that this might have led to Adele's alleged animosity towards her. The actress mentioned instances where she and the singer crossed paths at public events, with Adele reportedly avoiding prolonged interactions with Wilson.

Wilson speculated that Adele's discomfort could stem from a time when both women were larger in size, leading to potential comparisons that Adele may have found unfavorable. The 'Pitch Perfect' star even went as far as to suggest that Adele's avoidance of her was due to a fear of her 'fatness' rubbing off. Wilson's weight has been a significant aspect of her career, with her revealing that her contract for the 'Pitch Perfect' franchise once prohibited her from losing weight.

However, Wilson's journey towards a healthier lifestyle began in earnest in 2020, culminating in a remarkable weight loss of over 70 pounds. This transformation was motivated by her desire to improve her chances of fertility treatments, ultimately leading to the birth of her daughter via surrogate in November 2022. Wilson's dedication to her fitness and diet regimen has been evident in her social media posts and photo shoots, showcasing her newfound confidence and pride in her body.

Adele, too, has undergone a notable transformation, shedding weight and emphasizing the importance of physical fitness for her overall well-being. The singer emphasized that her focus was on becoming stronger rather than solely losing weight, highlighting the positive impact of regular exercise on her mental health.

'Rebel Rising' has generated buzz for its revelations, including a chapter centered on Sacha Baron Cohen. The memoir offers a glimpse into Wilson's personal and professional journey, shedding light on her struggles and triumphs in the entertainment industry. As the book prepares for its release on April 2, fans eagerly anticipate gaining further insights into Wilson's life and experiences.
