Singer Adele was apparently so distraught over the horrific blaze that claimed the lives of at least 17 people at London’s Grenfell Tower that she reportedly went to the devastated building on Wednesday and comforted people gathered nearby.
Photos emerged soon after on social media showing a visibly emotional Adele. Twitter user @FourMee shared a few images of the singer and proclaimed that they were snapped during the visit.

The BBC also reported on the Adele sighting, noting that she attended a vigil and kept a low profile; she was only seen and recognized by a few fans, the outlet said.
Adele’s social media accounts offer no details on her purported visit to the tower, though she’s been vocal in the past about traumatic events unfolding in her home country. In fact, she spoke out in the wake of the Westminster terror attack back in March.
At the time, Adele was performing in Auckland, New Zealand, and told her audience that she regretted not being able to be home.
“Today there was a terror attack in my hometown of London. I’m literally on the other side of the world and I want them to see our lights and to hear us,” she said, according to the Daily Mail. “It’s very strange not being home, all I want to do today is be at home with my friends and family.”
Adele was reportedly accompanied by her husband, Simon Konecki, when she visited Grenfell Tower on Wednesday and asked people at the site for any ways that she might be able to help out, MTV reported.
Authorities expect the death toll to rise as the hours and days forge on.
