With two of the highest-selling albums of all time under her belt, you'd think Adele would have it all, right? WRONG!!!

No, despite having millions of dollars and a happy family to boot, there's one thing the 28-year-old misses more than anything…

Cigarettes.

Apparently, Adele is starting to second-guess her decision to give up smoking way back in 2011 — and she's even come up with a pretty ridiculous excuse to justify her cravings.

Speaking to Canada's etalk on Thursday, the British belter admitted that her vice actually helped her signing career, saying:

It's been a little over five months since Abby Wambach went from U.S. Women's Soccer superstar to criminal overnight thanks to her April DUI arrest.

Chevy Chase has checked himself back into rehab.

On Monday, the comedian's rep confirmed that the Saturday Night Live alum has been admitted to the Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center in Minnesota. Apparently, the Community star is seeking treatment for an alcohol-related issue — which the funny man's rep called a "tune-up". Huh.

Not to mention, the National Lampoon's Vacation actor's handler added Chevy "wants to be the best that he can be." Well that's good to hear!

Prince's Alleged Ex-Drug Dealer Believes The Late Singer Knowingly Purchased Mislabeled Drugs To Conceal His Addiction

| Filed under: DrugsR.I.P.PrinceSad SadAddictionControversy

Prince

The former dealer who claims to have been Prince's source for drugs for decades thinks the late singer knew exactly what pills he was taking when he died back in April.

In fact, the man who wishes to be called Doctor D says the Purple Rain artist would often buy powerful opiates concealed in mislabeled bottles in order to hide his addiction, according to DailyMail.

As you know, the music icon was found dead in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota and an autopsy later confirmed that he had overdosed on a drug called fentanyl. This week we found out the pills seized from the Raspberry Beret singer's home were labeled as hydrocodone but were actually fentanyl on the inside. To make matters worse, it's said Prince stashed the counterfeit drugs in over the counter pill bottles, such as aspirin and Vitamin C containers.

The mislabeling led authorities to question whether the 57-year-old knew exactly what he was taking.

But according to Doctor D — who previously opened up about Prince's expensive and ultimately-fatal addiction — the songwriter may not have intentionally overdosed, but he knew the contents of the drugs:

We can barely keep up with all this!

Lamar Odom has been recuperating from his nearly fatal overdose for about ten months now, but his friends and family still aren't convinced that he's in the clear.

In fact, a rather despondent Khloé Kardashian is even preparing for the worst… as she knows "there's only one outcome" for Lamar's current battle with drug and alcohol addiction!

On Sunday's all-new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloé konfides in Kim Kardashian West that she's scared that because Lamar doesn't realize how serious his health problems actually are, that he could accidentally die at anytime.

He sure is lucky he has someone so supportive in his corner… and he doesn't even know it.

With that said, we're still pulling for a Khloé & Lamar Season 3!

Narcotic Drug Fentanyl Reportedly Found Mislabeled In Prince's Home — Did The Purple Rain Singer Accidentally Overdose On The Painkiller?

prince accidental overdose

Prince's overdose may've been more complicated than we originally thought.

As you may recall, the late music icon was found dead in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota back in April and an autopsy later confirmed that he had overdosed on a drug called fentanyl. However, it seems the lethal dosage of the opioid which killed Prince may've resulted from mislabeled pills.
