Thankfully, that's not true at all, her rep told Us Weekly on Monday. "We would like to reiterate that Adele is to undergo surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal chord. All reports regarding any other condition are 100 percent false."

As announced Friday, Adele (who has battled throat problems throughout the year as her beloved album 21 soared the charts worldwide) will undergo surgery soon, but "a full recovery is expected," her website read. "As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments."
