“Is this somebody who producers want to bet $40 or $60 million on and build a whole film around? Not likely,” scoffs the insider. “The idea of her leading a film, even a musical, is out of bounds for a lot of people.”
Adele, who earned raves for her Saturday Night Live hosting gig in 2020, hasn’t given up on her acting dreams, “but to movie producers, she’s still a soundtrack singer, not the main attraction, and there’s a growing view her window is closing fast,” the insider dishes. “It’s hard to see what Adele’s end game is when nobody in Hollywood seems to trust her just yet.”

An insider noted that while Adele was rehearsing for the show, she “got extremely needy and kept begging Rich to come to Vegas, and when he couldn’t, things got loud and confrontational."

“Adele went straight to Rich’s home in Beverly Hills and has been holed up there ever since, crying and raging,” added the insider of her flee from Vegas. “He’s doing everything he can for her, but she’s pressing for more than he can give.”
