Adele seeks therapy for photo phobia

LOS ANGELES: She may be a celebrity, but singer Adele has a phobia of being caught on camera. She is reportedly undergoing photo-healing therapy on Skype to cure her fear of being pictured.

The Skyfall singer has been looking into ways to overcome the phobia ahead of her huge music comeback in the near future. “Adele has always been camera shy, but with her big comeback, her fear of being thrust back into the limelight is growing,” a source said.

“She knows she will have paps (paparazzi) following her every move when her album is released and wants to be better prepared,” added the source. A close friend recommended Adele to get in touch with a photographer in the United States, known as “the photo healer” for Skype-based therapy sessions.

“He has been coaching the singer with a series of one-hour sessions, which include teaching her to overcome her deep-rooted fears and anxieties associated with being photographed,” said an insider. The treatment is said to include manipulating her “photosphere,” posing techniques to hide problem areas, building her confidence and figuring out the best angles for pictures.

Meanwhile, Martin Mallis, who is the owner of Adele’s label XL Recordings, said that there is no truth to these allegations and did not give any details about the release date of Adele’s new album.
