Adele reveals she collapsed backstage during her Las Vegas residency after suffering a sciatica attack: 'They picked my whole body up off the floor'

Adele revealed that she collapsed backstage during her Las Vegas residency, due to a sciatica attack, according to The Sun.

The singer, 35, reportedly told her fans at The Colosseum that a member of her production team found her unable to move backstage after suffering from a flare-up.

She allegedly told fans: 'They picked my whole body up off the floor.'

Adele also was forced to sit down during her Weekends With Adele performance, explaining: 'I am going to sit down and rest my sciatica.'

Sciatica is a debilitating back condition that normally occurs due to a slipped disk, which presses against the sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back to the foot.

It can cause shooting pains, a sensation of cramp and can be so severe it leaves someone unable to walk. 

Earlier this year Adele detailed her chronic back pain during another Las Vegas show as she hobbled across the stage.

While talking to the crowd as she fired T-shirts into the crowd using a handheld cannon, she said: 'I've got two more, I've just got to get over to the other side of the stage.

'I have to waddle these days because I have really bad sciatica,' Adele added in the video obtained by the Daily Star.

Adele has previously discussed being in pain for 'half her life', prior to losing weight and how her body overhaul has helped her cope with her problems.

Speaking to The Face magazine in November 2021, Adele spoke candidly about how life has changed since she famously shed 100lbs to help combat anxiety. 

She revealed she first slipped a disc at 15 and when she had a C-section with her son Angelo, nine, her problems increased - so since losing weight she can 'run around with him a little bit more' and branded her health a 'metaphor for surviving'. 

Adele's image has been a hot topic since she returned to the spotlight after her 2019 divorce and she has spoken about how physical health has helped her anxiety. 

Speaking about the physical pain she was in prior to her weight loss, she said: 'I'm definitely really happy now... I'm more agile because I can now move more, because of my back. I got my core strong...

'I slipped my first disc when I was 15 from sneezing. I was in bed and I sneezed and my fifth one flew out. In January, I slipped my sixth one, my L6. And then where I had a C‑section, my core was useless.

'I've been in pain with my back for, like, half of my life, really. It flares up, normally due to stress or from a stupid bit of posture..

'But where I got my tummy strong, down at the bottom, which I never had before, my back don't play up as much. It means I can do more, I can run around with my kid a little bit more.'

On how her health has improved and changed, she went on: 'But I like feeling strong, I really do. I love it. I was lifting weights this morning, and I've gone up from what I was doing a couple of weeks ago...

'When I feel that I have the weight of the world – of my world at least – on my shoulders, I can handle it a bit more because I've gone up 10 pounds with my weights. It really was just a metaphor for surviving.'
