Adele has reportedly quit the networking site Twitter after she had received death threats about her newborn son from trolls.
The Skyfall singer gave birth to her first child on October 19 with her partner Simon Konecki.
After announcing the birth, Adele received congratulatory messages but was flooded with threats and nasty comments from other tweeters.
One said: “It’s nice that Adele has finally given birth this week. It can’t have been easy being pregnant for the past five years.”
And another added: “Aw Adele gave birth to a baby. Is it fat and handicapped lol? Just murder it already lol.”
And as a result of the online abuse, the singer quit the networking site as a ‘friend’ told Daily Star: “She couldn’t believe people would be so awful about a baby.”
But the threats aren’t phasing the star as she is enjoying motherhood.
A source told The Sunday People: “Adele and Simon are ecstatic at their new arrival.”
They added: “She was over the moon that they were expecting their first child together.”
