ADELE: Adele's publicist says the British soul singer does not have throat cancer, contrary to Internet reports saying she does.
The 23-year-old recording artist recently canceled the rest of her 2011 tour schedule, explaining she plans to undergo surgery on her throat.
Although reports have been widely circulating on the Web that she is being treated for cancer, her representatives shot those down Monday.
"We would like to reiterate that Adele is to undergo surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal cord. All reports regarding any other condition are 100 percent false," her publicist told UsMagazine.com.

She also requested Humphries be denied spousal support.

Simpson is engaged to former professional football player Eric Johnson.

TAYLOR SWIFT: Taylor Swift's lawyers say a nude photo posted on the Web site CelebrityJihad.com is not of the wholesome U.S. singer.
The New York Post reported the photo shows a woman with exposed breasts and blond ringlets, wearing only strawberry-printed underwear, while lying on a bed.
The accompanying headline says, "Taylor Swift Private Pic Leaked?"
However, the 21-year-old, country-pop star's lawyers insist the woman in the photo is not Swift.
TMZ reported the recording artist's legal team has sent a letter to Celebrity Jihad warning it has posted "false pornographic images and false news" about the singer, and will be sued for trademark infringement if it does not remove them.
