Mehmet Ansar, a Turkish musician, recently told local media that he was the biological father of the famous British singer Adele. He claims to have had a brief relationship with her mother in 1987.
Ansar, a folk musician residing in the city of Bodrum (south-eastern Turkey) said he is the biological father of the famous British singer.
Ansar told local media how he met the singer’s mother.
According to Ansar, in July 1987, Adele’s mother, Penny Adkins, came to Bodrum with friends. During her vacation, she met Mehmet Ansar who was then working as a taxi driver.
“I showed Penny and her friends villages near Bodrum and Pamukkale. We fell in love. A month later she returned to England. Then she came to see me and invited me to move to the UK. But I gave up because I wanted to live in Bodrum. international calling was then very expensive and we lost contact. I’ve never seen her since,” said Mr. Ansar in an interview with the Turkish newspaper Milliyet.

Ansar began following Adele’s career after seeing a photo of the singer with her mother following the Grammy 2016 ceremony.
“I was shocked after seeing her with her mother because I understood that this was the Englishwoman I fell in love with years ago. To be sure, I compared it to an old picture I had taken during the holidays of Adele’s mother in Bodrum. It has not changed much over the years. I started to follow the news related to Adele and I learned that she was born on May 5, 1988, nine months after our meeting in Bodrum,” Ansar said.
According to Ansar, Adele has the same genetic particularity as him: his middle finger is much closer to his ring finger than to other people.
In addition, he said that during a dedication session, Adele had told one of her fans of Turkish origin that she had Turkish roots.
The musician is ready to do a DNA if Adele agrees.
“I would like Adele to come to Bodrum with her mother so that we can get to know eachother. I am sure that everything would become normal again in this case. I do not expect anything from them, I do not need anything financially, but I want my daughter to know the truth,” he said.
Adele (Adele Laurie Blue Adkins), born May 5, 1988, is the daughter of Welshman Marc Evans who left his family when she was two- years-old.
